Who Writes This Stuff???

A story on the NBC Action news web site tells the tale of a stabbing early Saturday morning outside of Gerry's Silver Slipper down at Independence & Lawn, well within the city limits of Kansas City.

The writer for NBC Action News, (Mike Markewinski) I shant call him a journalist, indicates in his ramblings that "Police don't know what caused the stabbings".

Hmm, last I looked, stabbing is usually caused by someone thrusting a sharp object into or at someone else. Usually deliberately and with much vigor.

Then, Mr. Markewinski indicates that anyone with information should call the Prairie Village Police Department.

I might not be the greatest cartographer (map maker) but last I looked, 4700 Independence Avenue is in Kansas City and is roughly 8 or so miles from any border of the sleepy burb of Prairie Village.
Guess the ol intern pool was a little dry this semester aye channel 41?

The story, if you can call it that, speaks for itself and is below.
