Before you go judging people you should probaly know who they are. Ive read several articles of violence, and I wonder just how many of these acts are committed by mentally ill people who arent given help by the state to get their medications. How many of these people are ill and need to be forced to medicate? I do not know all the information on the story but I do know for a FACT THAT JOEL IS MENTALLY ILL AND THE STATE DOES NOT HELP WITH MEDICATION! I do feel for the family of the man stabbed but there is more to the story than what is written.

Before you judge too much maybe you should know more than what goes over a scanner. Manuell may have been the person who jumped into the fight that was already in progress which made it an unfair fight. Perhaps Joel was fighting for his life and stabbed in order to survive himself. No one is a winner in a fight you idiot.

Well you are probably "mother of the year" how about you check out Joel's Facebook- claiming he was going to teach Manuel a lesson. Joel is a wanna be gangster.
How about

Well the paper said he confessed, his facebook page states his intent to harm the other subject, thats shows he planned this and did this not a sick person. Your son is a low life get over it. I hope they charge him with attempted first degree murder I think 12 people will see the samething the same way and convict him to life in prison without parole so he will live a love life and have to think about what he did for a long time.

I think the details of the fight will be more important than FB posts.

We've all seen the fights where the winner just doesn't know when to stop beating some poor guy. In a case like that the person losing could seriously fear for their life and justifiably use a knife in self defense. People get beat to death every day, its even happened in UC before.

Not saying this was the case because I wasn't there, but either way it sounds like Emanuel picked the wrong person to whip up on.

So the real question is how bad was the ass whipping getting before Joel pulled the
knife?

That will not be the final question to the jury.

You need to go read his facebook post from 01/06/2013. This is not a sick person he is a Memphis thug and this was premeditated. Premeditated murder is the crime of wrongfully causing the death of another human being (also known as murder) after rationally considering the timing or method of doing so, in order to either increase the likelihood of success, or to evade detection or apprehension.[1] State laws in the United States vary as to definitions of "premeditation." In some states, premeditation may be construed as taking place mere seconds before the murder. Premeditated murder is usually defined as one of the most serious forms of homicide, and is punished more severely than manslaughter or other types of murder - often with the death penalty or a life sentence without the possibility of parole.

In the U.S, Federal law criminalizes premeditated murder, felony murder and second-degree murder at Title 18 United States Code Section 1111

Hey Einstein, you know premeditated murder requires a murder right? No dead person, no homicide. So as it stands the kid is charge.d with aggravated assault. So no death penalty or life sentence. Kid might get a few years on probation, more than likely if he had no prior record it'll get pled down to a lesser charge.

And if he was being jumped by more than one person, OR if Emanuel got carried away...then it becomes self defense and Joel walks free. This is how it works.
