A 24-year-old Los Angeles woman is recovering from a traumatic brain injury after a homeless man stabbed her in the head with a pair of gardening shears in an unprovoked attack, authorities said.
[the victim] ran to a nearby restaurant with the weapon still embedded in her skull and begged for help before collapsing.
Watts underwent surgery for a traumatic brain injury and remains in the hospital. She faces a difficult road to recovery, and will likely face more long-term issues with her balance and vision as a result.
Despite the horrific nature of the crime, her mother said she understood what happened to her daughter was a “social and systemic failure,” and that more needs to be done to help those living on the streets who are struggling with mental illness.

Any guesses as to the mother's political affiliations?
I have a neighbor whose daughter was in college in NYC. The daughter was attacked on the street by a black guy and ended up with brain damage (still not quite right). The mother was very VERY proud of her daughter because (apparently) as they were loading the girl into an ambulance she yelled out — “Don’t arrest him! He didn’t have the same advantages that I had in life!”
I have no idea how true this is — but the mother told it to me as a true story. All smiles. We live in a rich MA town.
He can help:
No picture of the perp, hmm..
I’ll go out on a limb...democrat?
Well, it is obvious her daughter had brain damage based on what she yelled out.
Democrats closed the mental institutions so that they could toss them in the street and then blame Reagan for the ‘homeless problem’.
You would think they would have to common sense to reverse their idiocy when it no longer serves them, and in fact starts to hurt them.
Here is a local KTLA report that includes some grainy video of the homeless assailant.
“I’ll go out on a limb...democrat?”
That would be my guess as well.
Another story. Assaliant’s name is Jonathan Cole. Sounds like a white guy.
Time for common-sense garden shear control?
Involuntary detention with safeguards for those crazy enough to be objectively found to be out of touch with reality needs to return.
liberals are so moronic that even when someone sticks a garden shear into their child head they STILL don’t realize THEY are the ones to blame!!!
I am sorry for this daughter but the mother is a piece of idiocy...
we can't spend our lives worrying about such idiots....
Reminds of the European leader’s teen daughter defending the Muslim rapists. IIRC she was raped and murdered.
I won’t be surprised if we hear of the mother and daughter both “forgiving” the attacker. A lot of times the wronged victim or victim’s family members proudly proclaim their forgiveness, even in murder cases.
I must be a very BAD person, because I would NOT forgive any senseless crime like this.
No one wants to use words like kill, or take out, or assassinate when trying to come up with a solution for the evil rampant in an America God once blessed with might because of It's attempt to be a moral and pure nation/people.
A LOT of biblical/scriptural thought was utilized while drafting laws and rules for man.
Maybe it's time to stop saying "If we don't stop _______________ , God will have to apologize to ______________ ."
“Despite the horrific nature of the crime, her mother said she understood what happened to her daughter was a “social and systemic failure,” and that more needs to be done to help those living on the streets who are struggling with mental illness.”
This is a great example of why society needs fathers.
Throw me over the fence an apple.
Would she consider a career in Pennsylvania politics?
