Breaking: Spencer Stone, hero of French train attack, stabbed in Sacramento

From The AirForceTimes:

The victim suffered “multiple stab wounds to the torso,” KCRA‑TV reported. Police initially did not think the stabbing victim would survive and began treating the incident as a homicide investigation, but it now appears that the victim will pull through.

Although the Air Force has identified Stone as the stabbing victim, Sacramento police have not officially named the person who was stabbed.

Sacramento police said they received a call from about the stabbing from a passerby, a news release says.

“It is believed that the victim was out with a group of friends when a physical altercation led to the victim being stabbed multiple times in his upper body,” the news release says. “Detectives were called to the scene to assist with the investigation and the victim is currently being treated for what appears to be non-life threatening injuries.”

Airman Stone is currently in stable condition. It is a heck of a coincidence that he of all people has been stabbed, it is almost certain jihadis have a mark on his head, but it would also make sense that he might try to break up a fight if he witnessed it. Stay tuned, I will pass along more details as I come across them.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Airman Stone.

  1. Hopefully this is not retaliation from radical jihadists for his role in thwarting the train attack.

    1. That was obviously my first thought.

    It illustrates my prime directive: NEVER BE FAMOUS.

  3. Spencer says:

    Islamic State terrorists don’t need to invade America to inflict physical damage and social chaos; we already possess an overabundance of homegrown whack-jobs ready and willing to do it all by themselves. The latest example of the latter is the massacre of community college students and a teacher in Roseburg, Oregon. And following that awful event–and apparently as a result–Western Oregon lately has suffered a rash of bomb threats against colleges, and alleged (though probably specious) sightings of rifle-totin’ men strolling past a public school.
