STAMFORD, Conn. – Three men were beaten and stabbed as they left the Stamford High-Norwalk High basketball game in Stamford on Wednesday night, Stamford Police said.

Officers found an 18-year-old man at the scene with a serious cut on his right arm and more cuts and bruises to his head, police said. He was taken to Stamford Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The victim told officers that a group of six to seven black males in dark clothing approached him as he was leaving the basketball game at Stamford High School. The men pepper-sprayed him in his face, beat him and stabbed him with a knife before running away, according to the police report.

Enablers. no different that battered spouse syndrome? If the majority reacted this way ( apathetic to their own plight ) we would have global anarchy.


Barnstorm, you brought up a good point and I believe you are correct. I remember hearing about these types of incidents in the past. Such a shame.


In a lot of these cases the victims are uncooperative because they know who their attackers are and want to handle "payback" on their terms, not the police's. I doubt they're afraid of them. Lots of peer pressure to be Joe Badass.


The victims had a horrid experience and are afraid these losers will come at them again so they don't speak up. Happens all too often. I just hope others that know, since word gets around, speak up and stop trying to stay quiet because if you do, you are no better than the ones physically doing these attacks.


Lock up the filthy animals


The larger problem is when supposed adults refer to misdirected youth as filthy animals.

Sociopaths being uncooperative about their psychopath assailants'.
