Posts Tagged ‘stabbed’


BZ ran an article today where one guy knifed another guy because the other asked him to not bother his girlfriend. Which brings up the question, WHAT THE FUCK?

It happened right outside Universal at Oberbaumbrücke, which is not the worst area at any given time of the day. The poor guy who was attacked is in ICU at the moment and doctors say he might still die from it.

Generally, I’m a huge advocate of  courage and I try to get involved whenever I see crap happening and I never experienced anything like that in return in almost eight years of Berlin. I bet we all agree that the most we would expect from such a situation is an oral/verbal argument but stabbing someone is so totally out of line that I am inclined (displacement) to not believe it happened, especially because it’s so close.

Of course I am somewhat shortsighted. After all I live in Berlin and I am surrounded by all this and it probably happens more than I am aware of it. And sometimes it takes those super drastic events to take notice. But I wonder what’s next – shooting over organic food and parking spots?
