Boy hacked to death in NY...we're prepared for knife attacks but machetes???

via WGNTV.com
Seven people are in custody after a savage machete attack left a 15-year-old New York City boy dead in what was an apparent case of mistaken identity.

Six suspects were being held in Paterson, New Jersey Monday, awaiting an extradition hearing in the brutal death of Lesandro “Junior” Guzman-Feliz. One other suspect, 19-year-old Kevin Alvarez, has already been charged with second-degree murder, manslaughter, gang assault and assault. He pleaded not guilty.

WPIX first reported Sunday that multiple people were taken out of an alleged gang stronghold on East 24th Street in Paterson.

They are suspected of being members of the Trinitarios gang.

Prosecutor Camelia Valdes announced the extradition hearings of the following suspects:

Jose Muniz, 21, of Paterson, NJ
Jose Taverez, 21, of the Bronx, NY
Manuel Rivera, 18 of Bronx, NY
Danel Fernandez 21 of Bronx, NY
Joniki Martinez 24, of Freeport, NY
Santiago Rodriguez 24, of Bronx, NY

Their extradition to New York could happen as early as Tuesday.

Paterson, New Jersey police first received a tip at about 1:45 p.m. Sunday. They sent a large contingent of cops and found four people tied to the attack of Lesandro “Junior” Guzman-Feliz who were holed up at a house on East 24th Street in Paterson, a source told WPIX.

Note:  This one is kinda rambling so I apologize in advance....

I don't know the particulars of this incident.  I do know its a tragedy and I recoil at the thought that they're only facing 2nd degree murder.

But I want to take a big picture view.

I've watched with more than a little horror at the push to roll back sentences.

Remember the chick that Kardashian got Trump to pardon?  That person was a crack kingpin.  They call it a victim less crime?  BULLSHIT!  That epidemic roiled communities!  She affected so many lives that  its impossible to calculate yet now she's a compassionate figure?  Now we should feel sorry for her and want her released?  What about her victims?  Many that had nothing to do with the drugs she sold.  How many houses and cars were burglarized to fuel addiction?  How many people were assaulted so that they few dollars they had in their pocket could pay for some bastards wants?

How many people died in turf wars.

This machete attack is a reminder of that time.  Mistaken identity?  I don't care.  They went out hunting for someone and picked the wrong target.

Mark my words.  We are importing a knife/machete culture into the US.  That's a fact.  We will see more crimes like this and it will be a terrible sight to behold.

Does this have me spooked?

No!  This has me aware.  We've talked about multiple assailants attacking one person and what it would take to survive.  The problem is we talked about knife attacks, not machetes.  The right one of those can actually take an arm and that's the common training idea when dealing with a knife attack...to give up an arm so that you can return fire if the fight takes place in close quarters.

I need to research this but as of now I don't know of anyone teaching techniques to deal with it.  More to come unfortunately....
