  • Justice must be served says:

    There better not be a report of police brutality here or BLM (I’m only speculating as it’s a predominantly Black area)! A crime is a crime!

  • Resident says:

    Wow, that’s heroic!

    • Anon says:

      What do you mean heroic. Normal American man. First time in Lakewood someone acted like a man instead of a woman or a victim.

  • me says:

    If we could reassign MLK drive to a different city(maybe camden) it would probably bring down the crime in Lakewood by more than 50%.

  • just waiting says:

    very soon the legal weed will keep such people happily occupied at home

  • Dr King would turn in his grave says:

    Glad this didn’t have a tragic ending for either party.
    The first rule in a stabbing is not to remove the knife in the wound so as not to make the bleeding worst.

    Unfortunately this didn’t make MLK proud. Out of the 900 streets named after him in the nation, a vast number of them are filled with drugs and crimes. There is even an association called the National MLK Street Initiative! Let’s restore his good name here in Lakewood too!!

  • Marc says:

    MLK boulevard, avenue, street, etc. in every city is a designated high crime area.
    There are no surprises.

  • bob says:

    The suspect is known to the authorities as a mentally – unstable individual.
    What have the authorities keep individuals like this in a home for these people ?

    Have they done anything ?
    Or is it easier just to turn your head ?

  • Cedarbridge says:

    As Chris Rock famously said in an HBO special, “Nothing good ever happens on a street named MLK.”

  • Um... says:

    Why is a mentally unstable person “known to authorities”. Out on the streets of Lakewood?!?!

    Just proves why people view a certain kind of people a different way
