Another example as to why we should all be allowed to carry. But then, there were no guns in this slaying. So us law-abiding citizens should just allow some punk to stab us to death. /sarcasm.

Armenians? Turks? Oh, wait - Albanians?

Immigrants, just stabbing the people Americans won’t stab?

Do I have a bad attitude? Why yes, I do.

Why would you stab someone at the end of a fishing pier?

We’re lacking some details here.

Jealousy? Catching too may fish? Disrespecting my teenage fishing daughter?

If I’m at the end of a pier fishing, someone would have to really want my spot bad to “bring it”.

There is alot of riff-raff on that pier during the day - homeless, mentally ill types. I can only imaging what it is like at 1:20 AM.

I wonder if this is the same “Araik Ovoian” commenting on YouTube?

And here, getting pulled over by cops in Glendale, Cal:

...actually, the person getting pulled over in that video isn’t identified, although there are glimpses of the driver’s face. Araik Ovoian, if the same in this stabbing incident, only gave the video a thumbs up. However, from the brief glimpses I caught, I suppose it could be the same guy. Clearly the cops who stopped him would know.

Emma Lazarus should never have welcomed “the wretched refuse” to this country in her poem, engraved on the Statue of Liberty. We are filled to the brim with this human debris and need to call a halt.

They’re literally invited...Santa Monica City Hall not only encourages them to use the bathrooms, they allow them to shower there also.

These are just some of the glorious products of the mass immigration that Hewitt, Prager, Medved and the rest of Conservatism Incorporated are always promoting. Expect more of it when Boehner and Ryan guide ‘Immigration Reform’ through Congress. They won’t learn a thing until the rest of the country is transformed just as California was.

Gevork Bagdasaryan, 19 years old, of Burbank

Alex Akob Akbari, 18 years old, of Burbank

I'm thinking immigrants only because the judge set bail at $1 million each.........Maybe because they might be flight risks?

Back in the 80’s initiation in the local gangs was to successfully stab a person to death on the SM pier. I guess some things haven’t changed.
