Man Fatally Stabbed In Paris Metro As Onlookers Post On Social Media

Andy Brigitte, 22, was stabbed to death in the Paris subway system this past Friday night. Onlookers described a dystopian scene in which bystanders took pictures and video of the stabbing while doing nothing to intervene or help.

“No one lifted their finger to help Andy,” said Linda Brigitte, the victim’s mother. “Today, social media is too present. No one came to my son’s aid. Instead, they filmed it and shared it on social media,” she added tearfully.

According to the New York Post, Brigitte was allegedly attacked by an unidentified 33-year-old after an argument; he ultimately succumbed to injuries from the multiple stabbings. The victim worked as a mechanic before his death. He is a native of the Caribbean island Martinique.

“This is horrible and inadmissible,” added Betty Melinard, the victim’s aunt. “What these people did is unforgivable.”

Man Accused Of Fatally Stabbing Housemate After Workers Discover Human Skeleton Buried In Backyard

A man has been arrested after a skeleton surfaced in his backyard. According to CBS San Francisco, 22-year-old Michael Christopher Sager was arrested and taken into custody on Friday after his housemate’s buried bones were discovered.

Dad Fatally Stabs Family Pit Bull To Stop It From Mauling 1-Year-Old Daughter’s Face

Tragedy struck a family when its pit bull terrier attacked a 1-year-old. According to the Providence Journal, Remmy Goulart of East Falmouth, Massachusetts, was mauled and left with life-threatening injuries. After the incident, her father stabbed and killed the dog.

According to Mass Live, the attack on the child occurred on Sunday at the family’s home on Brick Kiln Road. The child was apparently playing in the kitchen with her father nearby when the terrier attacked her. The dog bit the 1-year-old in the face and caused what authorities have described as “major trauma.”

The father, Reece Goulart, then sprung into action to try to keep the dog away from the child. He first wanted to shoot the dog, but ultimately stabbed it.

“The father immediately attempted to separate the dog from the child, but was unable,” police said. “He retrieved a pistol from an adjacent room, but when he realized that it was not

Video Shows Man Attacking Deputy Before Being Fatally Shot By Police

On Friday, police in Broward County, Florida released footage of intense, violent moments that lead up to a fatal police shooting. In the video, 42-year-old Jean Pedro Pierre can be seen kicking, and even dragging, Deputy Sean Youngward outside a condominium.  

The officer was responding to a disturbance at the residential building when the violence broke out. Pierre can be seen dragging Youngward by his leg, while Youngward calls for backup.

The deputy tried to subdue the suspect by tasing him, but the attempt was in vain. Then, another deputy, Steven Briggs, shows up on the scene to help.

“Tase him, tase him; don’t shoot him,” a concerned citizen yelled at Briggs. Just like Youngward, Briggs was unsuccessful in his tasing attempt.

“Let it go, bro. They’re gonna shoot you, man,” a bystander yells at Pierre, who responded by letting go of Youngward only to charge at Briggs.

Pierre was then shot three times,

Woman Fatally Poisons Husband And His Family To Escape Arranged Marriage

A Pakistani bride is making international headlines after being charged with the poisoning of her husband and his family. According to BBC, Asiya Bibi has been arrested on suspicion of killing her new husband and at least 14 of his relatives with poisoned milk.

Bibi was apparently forced into an arranged marriage in September. Local media in central Muzaffargarh share that the bride had tried to flee her marital home — unsuccessfully — and return to her parents. 

Arranged marriages are common in the country, and women have varying degrees of choice in whom they marry and their life thereafter. As PBS notes, an arranged marriage distinguishes itself from other kinds of marriages (such as “love marriages” more common in the US) by the significant role that parents or older family members play in selecting a match and being involved in the union.

Allegedly, Bibi tried to kill only her husband with poisoned milk

A woman allegedly shot her common-law husband in the groin, killing him, after finding him cheating.

Debra Davis, 58, has been charged with the murder of 49-year-old Rodney Johnson. Police said she has already admitted to killing him, according to KHOU. Johnson was shot in his family’s Houston, Texas driveway on Tuesday while meeting up with his girlfriend. Then, Davis showed up with a gun, shooting Johnson in the “lower abdomen” region.  The other woman was present at the shooting, but she was not hurt.

“His girlfriend came and she shot him because he’s messing around with women,” Johnson’s cousin Robert Johnson said. “You know these things are love things.”

He said, while Johnson lived with Davis, he would often date other women.

“I’ll put it like this: [He] loved a lot of women,” Ralph Duncan, an ex-housemate of the slain man told KTRK. “That was the problem.”
