Brooklyn Stabbings: Five Dead Including A Baby
« on: October 27, 2013, 08:49:53 PM »
Police sources say a 25-year-old suspect, believed to be a relative, was arrested at the scene.


The victims were attacked at a home on 57th Street near Ninth Avenue

Police have named a woman and four young children who were stabbed to death in New York City.

Officers arrived at an apartment on 57th Street, near Ninth Avenue, in Brooklyn, at 11pm on Saturday and found all five victims unconscious and unresponsive.

They were named as Qiao Zhen Li, 37, Linda Zhuo, nine, Amy Zhuo, seven, Kevin Zhuo, five, and one-year-old William Zhuo.

William and the two girls were pronounced dead at the scene by emergency crews.

The woman and five-year-old boy were taken to separate Brooklyn hospitals where they were later pronounced dead.

Police did not give the relationships of the victims but said they all lived in the home.

Sources said a 25-year-old suspect, believed to be a relative, was arrested at the scene.

Police handcuffed the man inside the apartment. He was wearing jeans and had blood on his bare feet.

The children's distraught father reportedly arrived home from work to find the area sealed off by police.

One report said a machete and scissors were taken from the building as evidence.

Fire Department spokesman Jim Long said emergency workers received a 911 call from a person stabbed at the residence in the Sunset Park neighbourhood.

Has any mention been made that the UK has the highest violent crime rate in Europe, or is this constant bashing restricted specifically to the USA ???

There you go pop - dailymail.co.uk

The most violent country in Europe: Britain is also worse than South Africa and U.S.

Tragic though such incidents are, they are common around the world. If one knife crime is worth reporting, then so are all of the others. My concern about crime in the US is the frequency of gun crimes, especially the regular massacres. It's painful to see that nothing is being done to deal with the problem. That's why I post about it. I've spent some good vacation time in the US and it's concern that moves me, not 'bashing'.

I believe that the latest notable violent crime in the UK was the hacking to death of a soldier by Muslim extremists. That incident was covered extensively by several community forums in Thailand. It was a remarkable incident and worthy of the attention it got. What stood out for me was that the armed police injured one of the culprits rather than shoot him dead.

DER SPIEGEL online, one of the highest-profile news sites on the web, also ran this story about an unusual and extremely cruel slaying with big headlines on their index page. I can't imagine that their experienced journalists did that for bashing the USA. I rather think they did also view it as an important information, how people in the US get more and more confused due to the multitude of problems the US population has to deal with at present: a huge and steadily widening social divide, a paralyzing political divide, a near bankrupt government, and on top the newly acquired popularity of the dreaded "Big Brother", the nation where people cannot control their government anymore.

Tragic though such incidents are, they are common around the world.

No, saf, it's not common around the world, that in a highly developed country not at civil war one person goes as berserk to kill four kids and their mother with a knife. It documents sickness, unusual and extreme cruelty. Let the movie play in your head, how that might have happened!

Many Americans, and locally the vets, at the moment have to deal with far more problems than they can cope with, so they might react hyper-sensitive to news like that. Especially the financial problems of their government lets them fear for their pensions, their livelihood. So, I can understand pop's reaction as well. But he's wrong! Thaiga's post clearly wasn't intended as "bashing" but rather as incentive to stimulate a discussion, something he succeeded with.

It is common. Here's a UK example:

http://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2013/jul/30/brixton-triple-stabbing-teenager-sister

So far, there has been no discussion of this topic, only statements to the effect that pop should not have objected but continued to worry, if indeed he does, about the US's other problems. Like some of my posts about massacres in the US, the subject itself has been ignored so far. The gun issue is of general concern because it is a major one and non-US citizens are surprised that nothing is being done about it. Stabbings are common and, in the greater scheme of things as viewed from Korat, not remarkable. I have no objection to the opening post, even though the incident is unremarkable outside of the US, and none to pop's response.

As little information as is available until now, what is there to discuss about? Speculate, why the stabbing occurred etc. might be the only possibility to "discuss" the OP. And who says that a discussion has to be confined to the OP's topic? Then you couldn't talk about guns. Gun violence and other weapons violence have something in common: violence! How about that aspect: why are people increasingly violent? Could it have something to do with the situation I mentioned in my post? Insecurity and confusion due to personal and the nation's state?

Some people still think every forum must be like most of the others. If there is nationalist bashing on tv etc., there is no reason to conclude that it also happens on here. I'm happy that members on this forum are more open and understanding than on most other forums, have a much wider horizon. As it isn't fun at all to administer a forum, when you have to interfere, moderating posts and solving situations, very often. Thanks to those understanding that a forum can only run easily with harmony among the participants. :salute
