JasonOfOrillia: Too bad he didn't have a gun. he could have chased after the deaf guy and "stood his ground." Perfectly legal as long as he felt threatened.

chemical_angel: Assistant Police Chief Chris Verdeck called the gang signs connection "speculative." Police were asking that any other witnesses call themReally?
Tatterdemalian: Like I tell people, you can be hated without ever even saying a word. People will stab you just for standing in line, if they are impatient enough./and yes, other people will run to the defense of the stabber//gangs only stab gangs, if you weren't in a gang you wouldn't have been stabbed by a gangster
Wretschko: This is why every deaf child, once identified at birth as such, needs to be immediately implanted with a cochlear implant regardless of any potential objections by the child's parents.This miraculous Invention restores hearing to the deaf child, who can now receive a proper education and learn to speak and hear and function in today's society at large.Had the victim been implanted, he would not have been using sign language at the time and thus would not have been mistaken as flashing gang signs and stabbed as a result.Instead, with the cochlear implant, his slurred speech and inability to fully comprehend what was said to him would have resulted in the perpetrator assuming he was drunk and, as such, an "easy" victim. The perp would then rob and stab him instead of this tragic outcome.

S Gilmore L: Ignorance abounds.
Nem Wan: If you didn't know it was sign language, you didn't know what "gang sign" was either. For all you know you started a gang war with a bigger gang than yours. Maybe you're bad at being in a gang.
Vangor: chemical_angel: Assistant Police Chief Chris Verdeck called the gang signs connection "speculative." Police were asking that any other witnesses call themReally?There is no statement from the attacker and simply witness speculation. Being attacked while signing is the same as being attacked while talking, except deaf people are somewhat more vulnerable due to lack of hearing. I have heard numerous stories which speculate confused symbols, but the majority of sign language and "stacking" is impossible to confuse. Not to say gangsters are known for rational and calm actions, but this certainly happens, just not in all situations where signing happened.

Evil Canadian: My Deaf-Blind friend was learning to sign. She was Oral Deaf - she had learned to lip-read and speak (like a drunken Scot, so understandable).Most unfortunately for her, she made up a name-sign for her boss, and in the process accidentally called her boss a penis. Most fortunately though, her boss wasn't much in for stabbing.
