    Talk about serious victim-selection failure.

    Too bad their initial plan only included wasp spray and baseball bats. At least it ended well, though.

    This could be just a follow up to a previous article. The article references DNA that they used to determine that it was the same man in both crimes. That wouldn't have been available very soon after the crimes, so this may be a sort of follow up now that they know both crimes were in fact related.

    Oh yeah, that makes sense - I guess. They don't yet have instant DNA checks like our instant background checks, do they?

    Strange, that in attempt to hide the identities of the victims, the media would do such an awful job at hiding their identities ... marginal rub-out of the faces in the photos, identification of the Crossfit business in question, clear images of the people in various settings. Hm, like it's difficult to find them. Though, I suppose in this case the BG is toes-up on a slab, and unlikely to be involved with a gang of others who'd take them down for resisting.

    Kudos to the couple for being able to withstand what was being done.

    So he brought a video camera to a knife fight? I wonder if the knife was a Ginsu?

    This story was reported by a newspaper in the UK but it happened in the US. Weird.

    I guess there's no crime in England so they report things that happen here.

    Well, it was a knife encounter. No gun encounters in the U.K., so those don't generally get reported, unless of course the person using it is still standing and dared used it to defend themselves.

    Glad the wife and husband prevailed. To think the poor woman had to deal with this scum twice! At least she finalized it on the second time.

    For good reason too! Obviously pointy kitchen knives kill.

    I've found that Daily Mail actually reports US news better than most major US outlets. And the readership tends to support US gun laws and self-defense. For example, from the comments:
