The only thing that will stop a bad guy with a knife, safely, is a good guy with a gun. There were numerous opportunities here to stop this guy, but apparently no one was armed well enough with gun and training to stop him in time for this daughter not to lose her dad. If you believe daughters should not lose their dads in this way, please go to www.guntrust.org and take my free concealed carry class (OCSD-approved for California CCW).
A man stabbed in the neck while sitting with his young daughter on his lap at a Ventura steakhouse Wednesday night has died, and a 49-year-old homeless man was arrested in what’s believed to be a random attack.
According to Ventura police, at about 9:20 p.m. Wednesday, the suspect, identified as Jamal Jackson, entered Aloha Steakhouse, located at 364 S. California St., and stabbed a man in the neck with a knife in what appeared to be a random attack. The victim, later identified as Anthony Mele, was rushed to a hospital with life-threatening wounds, where he underwent surgery. However, authorities confirmed that he died from his injuries Thursday.
Prior to the stabbing, witnesses told police the suspect was waving a knife and threatening people outside the restaurant.
