  1. I know a lot of people disagree, but this guy doesn't deserve to be locked up for what happened. The stabbing occurred where he lived/stayed. Nobody wants somebody stabbed at their home. What happened when he took the kid towards the hospital is anybody's guess.

    1. He did not live where the stabbing occurred, it was his girlfriend's apartment.
