Male Student Stabs Five At University California Merced – The Police ‘Blow Him Away’


It seems the heroes today were armed campus police and some construction workers that used their “tools” to distract the suspect and grapple with him until the police arrived to deliver the “taxpayer relief shot”. Well done guys; a case of beer for each of you!

A male student stabbed and wounded five people on the campus of the University of California at Merced on Wednesday, before being shot and killed by police, authorities said.

One of the victims, a 31-year-old construction worker with Artisan Construction, was stabbed at least once and taken to Mercy Medical Center by his coworkers, according Artisan CEO John Price.

The wounded worker is Price’s son, Byron, who was one of three Artisan Construction workers remodeling the student waiting room at the Classroom and Office Building.

“They heard a scuffle in the classroom right across from where they were working and it sounded like a fight. So (my son) opened the door and the guy lunged at him,” John Price told the Sun-Star. “It got the (attacker) outside the room, away from others.”

Price said his son is receiving treatment and is expected to recover.

Two of the five victims were flown to area hospitals while others were treated on the scene, according to campus spokeswoman Lorena Anderson.

    UC Merced is a designated “hispanic-serving institution” — aka a diversity-themed college with lower standards.

    When this happens in Israel and it’s an Arab stabbing Jews, the Israeli police are condemned by the rest of the world for using “excessive force” when they kill the attacker. American security cop shoots bad guy stabber – good. Israeli security shoots bad guy stabber – bad.

    When these reports are vague with a name for the criminal it usually means MUSLIM.

      This could just as easily be Mexican or even Asian, in that area.

        When there is no description whatsoever, one can be certain the dead perp is a minority.
