Irresponsible Knife Use of the Day: Peaceful, Easy Feeling Edition


Vernett Bader stabbed her ex-boyfriend/roommate several times because he refused to stop playing the Eagles.

54 Year-old North Charleston (SC) resident Vernett Bader was arrested for stabbing her 64 year-old roommate/ex-boyfriend because he wouldn’t stop playing the Eagles.

From Gawker:

According to the official report, Vernett Bader, 54, became irritated with her 64-year-old roommate (and one-time boyfriend) after he rejected her pleas to turn off the Eagles and told her to “shut up.”

Bader then entered the kitchen and grabbed a serrated knife, which she subsequently used to stab her roommate several times in the arm, hand, and elbow.

The roommate and his brother managed to wrestle the knife away from Bader, but she quickly retrieved another from the kitchen.

All three were intoxicated at the time, per the report.

It’s unclear which of the band’s songs drove Bader over the edge, but police have narrowed down the possible suspects to “Witchy Woman,” “Take It Easy,” “Peaceful Easy Feeling,” “Take It to the Limit,” “One of These Nights,” “Tequila Sunrise,” and “Hotel California” on repeat.

“All three were intoxicated at the time”. Go figure.

There is not much more to say about this one, but in the interest of rewarding those who have made the jump to page 2, I am offering a Sheriff of Baghdad Morale Patch to the person who can give me a better headline for this post in the comment section.

It has been too quiet lately, I like hearing from everyone. Along those lines, we still have more prizes than entries in our “Reader Essay Contest“. There are Prizes from Spyderco, Sheriff of Baghdad, and Empire Outfitters that you can win. Just send your entry to Entries can be knife reviews, stories (still waiting for a good “Grandpa taught me to whittle” type post), News and Knife Rights related, or pretty much anything tangentially related to our work here at TTAK.

    It was just “One Of These Nights”, but luckily for the victim, she didn’t “Take It To The Limit”; doctors say if he’ll “Take It Easy”, he’ll heal up soon enough.

  2. “hotel Stabifornia”

      that’s chicken dinner right there, mr. aalders.
      it occurred to me as i was forwarding this to a proponent of henly’s music (i am quite the opposite) that an effective title might have been “she has a point…”
      and for some reason i can hear chief wiggums calling her “stabitha.”

    it’s already a song title by mojo nixon: “don henly must die.”
