    The article starts off with the story that the guards stabbed the suspect, then they got stabbed. I hope that's not correct, or they are in big trouble.

    I prefer to hope the news reporter got it wrong, as they often do, and that the guards got stabbed while trying to apprehend the bad guy.

    I therefore state I hope the guards get well soon, and to give the guards a Big thumbs up for a job well done.

      I'm not sure what your point is here, bpdblue. Don't you routinely stab most people you talk to? I certainly do. "Take that, you summabitch!" is such a much more interesting way to open a conversation instead of the same old tired "Hello", don't you think?

        Well now, I may have to rethink my position on this one.
