That’s a Knife

That's a knifeWhoopsie:

“A man allegedly trying to rob another person was fatally stabbed by his victim Friday night, police said.

Dimitre Beck, 22, of the 7300 block of South Peoria Street, was stabbed about 10 p.m. Friday night in the 7300 block of South Halsted Street, police said.

Police said Beck and a group of people tried to rob someone and began beating the victim in the head and body.

The victim pulled out a “cutting instrument” and stabbed Beck in self defense, said Officer Thomas Sweeney, a police spokesman.

After the victim stabbed Beck, Beck’s cohorts and the victim fled the scene, Sweeney said.

An autopsy determined he died of multiple stab wounds, and classified his death as a homicide.”

We’d like to add the word “justified” right before homicide.

Keep it short and to the point. Name calling and similar stupidity will be deleted. If you insist on writing several paragraphs, start your own blog.

    can’t blame the victim for fleeing. you can’t trust the lawyers/judges to agree with victim that it was purely self defense stand your ground. politically, there are way too many politicized morons who would want this victim jailed, prosecuted, convicted and imprisoned. george zimmerman is recent example of a victim dragged through the mud of the justice system by prosecutors, judges and even by his own lawyers.

      You have to admit in these type incidents the victim in fear of his life ( having just fought to preserve it ) and knowing the “Justice system” favors the Honor students did the right thing in legging it.
      He was attacked by a group so the chance they might return and finish him surely made fleeing the only logical choice .

        imagine defending yourself/your life, only to then be arrested, then waiting in the nasty chicago jail to see a sbag judge, then having to pay some outrageous high bail that the politically juiced sbag judge pulls out of his ass is necessary, then having to hire some sbag lawyer with real money your money, and then waiting/sweating it out two+ years all the while praying the jury will believe your version of the events and not some politically motivated sbag prosecutors bs trumped up version. george zimmerman went through this and he also had to in addition to high bail, had to wear a gps ankle bracelet and report to the gov’t parole officer daily. possibly darren wilson may have to go through this bs too – with no guarantees that justice will be on his side since the political atmosphere in his case is off the charts.

    I feel so bad for the “Honor Student”, if he would have had a handgun to defend himself against the victim, next time he’ll know better, oh wait, never mind about the next time.

    His affirmative defense is going to be tough to prove. When was the assailant deemed no longer a threat? Well, one could size up the perp and determine that time was when they cooled to ambient temperature and stopped producing CO2. However, if the victim had a handgun, they may have been able to mitigate the threat enough so that they could run away for safety and call 911 from a safe distance. If the victim had a handgun and emptied all 17 rounds of 9 mil into the perp, you could say that the victim went too far OR that the victim should have been carrying a larger caliber handgun. It all depends on the perp’s size, blood content (high on PCP, good luck with that) and whether the perp kept fighting with the victim.

    But if the victim had a handgun that had a laser sight, then the victim would go to jail for a very long time because of the city statute calling those little red dots weapons of mass destruction. Yeah, stupid. And if the perp was still breathing, he’d probably get 30 days for petty theft and back on the streets after a steady diet of warm meals and a cot, lucky dude.

    Sigh.

    I’m running late at the moment, but I will comment on this later.

    No witnesses in the hood. I wonder how many shootings are made in self defense by legal conceal carry citizens. Why be assaulted by a street thug just to be assaulted in court? That famous philosopher, George Zimmerman, once said ” there’s a lawyer attached to every bullet. “

    First of all do not believe everything you read in the papers because the information is not 100%. First off Dimitre Beck was not involvedin the attack of the so called victim he just happened to be on his way home a block away from 773rd and Halsted when the so called victim was coming to his feet the group of boys started running because a preacher nearby was coming towards them yelling to get off that man I mean they were beating this man up in front of his church when the group started to run Dimitre was riding past on a bike that’s when the so called victim grabbed him off his passing bike and brutally stabbed him first in the shoulder then he removed the knife the Brutally stabbed him in the chest then he removed the knife again then brutally stabbed him in the chest a second time and then he removed the knife again then brutally stabbed him in the chest a 3rd time then removed the knife again dropped him and then ran like a bitch I know this because Dimitrie Beck is my blood cousin so fuck everyone of you who has nothing else to do in this world but talk shit about the next
