    “It does not give you or me the right to judge. Nor does it give the person the right to stab him.”

    Certainly we have the right to judge.
    I choose to not use that right, but I have it.

    In like manner, you have chosen to use your right to judge the one who stabbed him. Or are we to understand only certain people have judging rights?

    David for needing fewer judges
    by doing less wrong

    Regardless if he was in prison, had a history of criminal activity, or it was a drug deal
    gone bad. It does not give you or me the right to judge. Nor does it give the person the right to stab him. Instead of pointing the finger and being judgemental it could have been you. Would it been different if the individual that was stabbed was a lawyer, doctor, teacher, bus driver, janitor, etc. Or is it because he has a crimnal history he deserve to be stabbed?

    I hate how you guys get on here and state your opinions when you don’t even have a clue what the freak is going on it’s crazy , how about you worry about what’s going on in your area and not ours . none of you comment have never had too live the life this man have lived so you can’t possibly know the things trials and tribulations he endure every day , . Smh what does somebody being stabbed have too do with how much time he spent in prison and how can you say it would’ve been better off if he stayed in prison all because of a stabbing that’s ridiculous ,

    If you don’t know exactly what happened then you should get your facts straight before saying someone should have stayed in prison. If it was your son or daughter I don’t think you like if someone made the comment about them. No matter what a person did before anyone can change including yourself!!! KNOW YOUR FACTS BEFORE OPENING YOUR MOUTH YOSEMITE SAM!!!

    The stabbing didn’t happen over on Ivey St. thats just where he went to get help It clearly says that, but regardless of where it happened its still a shame but its great the guy wasn’t seriously hurt. Hope they catch the guy who stabbed him and get him off the streets before he possibly hurts someone else

    Alfreco’s only been out of prison for a couple of months. With his record if would be safer for everybody, including him, if he woulda stayed in.
