Deaf Man Stabbed After Sign Language Mistaken For Gang Signs
Via Gawker reports:
A deaf man in Burlington, North Carolina, was stabbed multiple times after his sign-language conversation with another deaf man was mistaken for gang signs.
The incident took place Wednesday afternoon on East Morehead Street, where 45-year-old Terrance Ervin Daniels was exchanging words in sign language with another man.
Police say Daniels was suddenly approached by 22-year-old Robert Jarell Neal, and stabbed multiple times with a kitchen knife.
He managed to make his way to a nearby intersection, where he collapsed on a patch of grass.
Emergency services eventually made their way to the scene and transported Daniels to Alamance Regional Medical Center in stable condition.
Neal was arrested a few hours later and charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, inflicting serious injury, and felony assault on a handicapped.
According to Burlington Police staff Sgt. Mark Yancey, it was determined that Neal had mistaken Daniels sign language for gang signs. Yancey added that Neal himself is not a member of a gang.
We should have seen this coming when their rival gang named themselves “Please stop stabbing me.” Wait, what? Let’s ignore the fact he is deaf for a moment, the guy just went around randomly stab who he thought was gang members? SMH!!!!!!!!!!
