Two hearing impaired men were stabbed in a Hallandale Beach bar Saturday night when another patron mistook their sign language for gang signs.
31-year-old Alfred Stewart, who is deaf and mute, and three others including a bouncer are recovering in hospital from non-fatal wounds suffered at the Ocean's Eleven Sports Lounge and Grill on Federal Highway, where Stewart and his friends were celebrating a birthday.
Police say Barbara Lee became angry when she thought Stewart's party, all of whom are deaf, were throwing gang signs at her.
The 45-year-old confronted Stewart and his friends and made gang signs to them. Witnesses say they motioned for the "aggressive" woman to leave them alone.

At 45 years old she’s 1) Incaple of discerning ASL vs. gang signs, 2) Actually disturbed to the point of violence, and 3) Has yet to figure out how to live in the civil society.
Stunning. Glad this is part of the world I never usually see in person.
Prayers for the decased and their families.
