Sheriffs nab suspect in stabbing at WeHo Whole Foods

A suspect has been arrested in the stabbing that occurred outside the Whole Foods in WeHo a week ago.

The ‘Crime Spree American’ problem is exacerbated by Tolerance Americans, who create the legal frameworks where Crime Spree Americans thrive. They lobby and vote for making crime legal, neutering prosecutors, and undermining constitutional rights. ‘Tolerance American’, is a cryptic term of course because they only have tolerance for the criminals, and none for the law abiding and tax paying contributors to our community. The people who build, save, enrich and grow quality of life and embody the values that make our society worth living in, are castigated as bigots and intolerant by these Tolerance Americans. And the Tolerance Americans are… Read more »

I am Sorry but the last I checked this was Wehoville. Is there a person who is the self appointed editor that must interject at every comment? This might be considered Excessive harassment to outright cyber Bullying. I wonder if Wehoville is aware of these patterns by the same individuals on this news platform?

What in the world are you talking about?

That’s not a rhetorical question. I’d like to know!

Too bad the guy didn’t have a gun. He could have shot the attacker. Of course that would be politically incorrect with the SHE group.

Like anyone cares what opinions come out of the mouth of someone like Lindsay Horvath or John Erickson! Two of the most dreadful people ever elected to public office.

NO if he had a gun, the chances are more likely that the gun would have been taken away from him and possible used against him, guns do NOT enhance safety ❗ Lindsay Horvath and Dr. John Erickson were ELECTED by Popular Majorities unlike trump who was appointed by the electoral college.

If the facts are consistent with the story, YES it’s unacceptable and something needs to be done about it. BUT crime is worse elsewhere. Imagine a racially motivated shooter with a military style AR-15 assault rife killing 2 unarmed people and seriously wounding a Paramedic, then found NOT GUILTY in a court with a completely bias judge and jury ❓

Unarmed? The one guy Kyle shot had a handgun and was raising it to shoot him. The other swung a skateboard at his head while he was on the ground. I guess you listen to the woke media and twitter and did not see the video of him pulling his gun on Kyle. These were rioting thugs , all with criminal records (one had raped 5 boys between 9 and 11).

Creepy how you call him “Kyle”–like he’s your good friend. He’s a killer and will no doubt suffer for his crimes in many ways.

The ONLY guy shot by terrorist Kyle who was armed was the Paramedic who was responding to an active shooter. This goes to show the “good guy with a gun” idea won’t work! The guy with skate board swung it at him AFTER Kyle was shooting. The high resolution drone video the bias Judge did NOT shows Kyle to be the aggressor. ONLY 36-year-old Joseph Rosenbaum had a felony record for sexual conduct with a minor in Arizona in 2002, basically a teenager having sex with other teenagers!

Joseph Rosenbaum was an adult who anally penetrated (with his own penis) little boys ages 9 to 11. He spent several years in prison for it. There were a number of other little boys who had also been violated by him. The “paramedic” is also a career criminal who had a gun illegally.

I could go on … and on … and on, … but why really? Cy doesn’t hear a word I’m saying.

Racially motivated? Everyone involved was white! AR-15s are not used in the military. And its name, AR, is not assault rifle; it’s Armalite rifle. Two of the guys who were shot were armed. All three of the guys who were shot were career criminals, including the pedophile who raped (penetrated) little boys and the paramedic who, among many other crimes, slapped his own grandmother. He told the truth on the witness stand, so he has SOME redeeming quality. Honestly, Cy, you need to include in your sources of news some alternative sources that might not report what you want to… Read more »
