We need more soup kitchens!!!!

Adventures in Knifedon continue...

An 81-year-old man was stabbed in the stomach, at 6pm, in a East End London cemetery after refusing to hand over his wallet to an intoxicated youth "in need of money."

Officers arrested a man they found hiding behind a white monument at the cemetery.

“The suspect in this case was intoxicated and in need of money, and the victim was in the immediate area of the suspect when the suspect made the decision to attack,” [London police Const. Amanda] Pfeffer said.

The elderly man was in stable condition in hospital yesterday, police said.

It was a “random attack” that shouldn’t discourage Londoners from visiting cemeteries, Pfeffer said.

“The victim in this case did absolutely nothing wrong and could not have prevented this attack,” she said.
One is left to wonder, after reading the London Free Press article, if the suspect will achieve the status of victim after attending mandatory support group sessions.

That has to be the stupidest comment I ever heard, It was a “random attack” that shouldn’t discourage Londoners from visiting cemeteries, Pfeffer said.

“The victim in this case did absolutely nothing wrong and could not have prevented this attack,” she said.

Is she trying to tell us that most victims provoke their attacker? Is she trying for a job with tourism London to promote London cemeteries as safe hangouts?

If there were any justice in the world, someone should take that punk and kick the shit out of him. There are lines even the worst criminals don't cross. The stabbing of an 81 year old man would be one of them.
