A shocking stabbing death

Most of us, most of the time, in most places in Chattanooga have reason to feel safe. But that tragically proved not to be the case for a 15-year-old girl who was stabbed to death in an altercation at College Hill Court on Monday night.

What happened? According to witness reports, the victim was "just standing there" when two groups got into a fight in the 1300 block of Poplar Street Court, with someone swinging "a little knife."

"I just turned around and saw my little sister on the ground bleeding," said 17-year-old Anissa Wells. The victim of the fatal stabbing was Shavaya Vinson. A woman has been arrested in connection with the case.

It is horrifying that a teenager's life was lost in such a senseless way. Justice should be done, but that won't make up for a life ended so prematurely.

what a shame, what a shame...and the beat goes on....the community and the Churches of this community need to look inward....inward to the fact there are no or very, very few fathers or husband in the households of these public homes....these type of behaviors have become acceptable....Why do females have children if they dont have husbands and are not going to teach and discipline the children....the country honor roe vs wade so they can control the birth canal....there are no excuses!!! Someone need to teach these young female.....its sad.....

this precious life have been lost...but this community have the mentality of the gazelle animals crossing the crocidile nile river.....when the crocodile attack the herd and one of the herd member is tored apart by the jaws of the nile rive crocodile..the herd just keep going foward...showing no emotions and not looking backward...they just keep going foward.....the under-class of these community have become immune to the death as the Gazelle have become immune to the death by the Nile river crocodile...except with them its the baby,child,female,young male....this is what happen when a community accept satanic powers
