According to Lawrence Police Sgt. Ted Bordman, the incident occurred in the 1700 block of West 24th Street near Hampton Court Apartments. Police responded to the call about 4:15 a.m.

Bordman said a man had suffered multiple stab wounds to the neck and torso. The man was transported by ambulance to Lawrence Memorial Hospital and was expected to be transported to another area hospital once he was stabilized.

Bordman said police had two people of interest in the incident that they were waiting to interview. Because of a language barrier, Bordman said police were not yet sure if the two were witnesses, suspects or both.

No information on the victim's condition was available and no arrests have been made.

Racist?? We're all a little racist, including me... Facetiously, belligerantly, off-handed or intentionally, we're ALL a little racist.

Look at the terms we use, thinking they are actually GOOD ones... Mexican American, African American, Russian American...

It's still segregation, and it's worse because everyone, on both sides of the terms, not only approve of them, they applaud them. When did we stop being Americans, regardless of anything else?

yes beo, you are correct, that is why many of todays racists are of the non-caucasian persuasion.

whoa! ljworld admin ... a little heavy on the trigger today? a little too heavy on the politically correct?

mycomment above got yanked...maybe because I said something about that neighborhood and too much crime there??? I actually stated we don't know they're illegals.
that because I know many internationals.

so admin, just why so hair-triggered on this story???


Beo, one of the most reprobate posters on here makes just as evil an assumption as the "racists" he thinks he is attacking. people who care about america can strongly oppose illegal immigration without being racist.

do you even care that illegals push down wages for legal immigrants and americans of low educational attainment? do you even care that illegals make it harder for legal immigrants to find work? illegals often also commit crimes against legal immigrants.

do you even care that between a quarter and a third of criminals held in state prisons are illegals in about half of our states?

do you even care that Phoenix is the kidnapping capital of the U.S. because of the loose border and mexican drug gangs? since the 2003 beginning of the iraq war, far more americans have been killed by illegals here than american troops killed in iraq; about ten times as many.

Beo, if you care so much about illegals, then open your home up to them. put up signs in various languages. see how long you enjoy your happy home?
oh I forgot, you live there so it ain't a happy home!

Cavtrooer@ 4:06, I like you! It was my great-grands on my dad's side who came here from Norway. Grandpa never lost his very thick, Norweigan accent. Good comment!

Watch and see if beoB went to Mexico without proper docs. and started just wandering the streets and tried to do some 'under the table' work and was thrown in a prisión de Mexico.....he'd be spewing a different tune.

If Lawrence was a college town or something like that, then maybe the people involved could be international students.

No, that couldn't possibly be it. We must assume they are illegals.

I wonder if tourists ever have problems with languages?

Nah....

"What we got here is failure to communicate."

Okay, someone had to say it. I just didn't know that in Cool Hand Luke, Paul Newman was playing an illegal immigrant.

You know... when my great grand father arrived here in the US he didn't speak any English.
He spoke..... Norwegien. He - yep - washed dishes in a diner in lower Manhatten until he could get enough money to get to Duluth and start working in the lumber camps. I wonder HOW MANY OF YOUR FAMILIES SPOKE ENGLISH WHEN THEY GOT HERE? Did that make them "illegal" or "trash" or "unter-mench" Sorry to see that some of you have not lived up to the dreams of your forefathers.

hmmmmmmmmmmm..........What does 'language barrier' have to do with illegal immigration?

. . . . . ?....

Wow! This has to be - hands down - the largest number of removed posts I have ever seen in one story! I was thinking that there have been a few more knuckle-heads than normal loose on the internet today. Hope the stab-ee gets better and the stab-er gets to spend some time in jail. No matter what his language of preference.

Another chance for all the racists to scream and holler. As mindless as ever.

This one sure is a hot potato, seems so many posters are quick to assume they "know" what the language barrier was. We have people here in Lawrence from all over the world, so it could have been just about any language.

Even sign language.

Just because someone doesn't speak english does not make that person an illegal immigrant. I can't believe how ignorant some of you are. Also a "person of interest" does not mean "suspect". They could have just been a witness. We have some really ignorant, racist people in this town.

Personally, I don't really give a damn what nationality someone is, if you now live in America, legally, then you are an American. Speak english(or learn how to) or get the hell out ! And of course, if you are not here legally then just get the hell out !

@Areunormal - being reasonalbly conversant in ANY language does not equal the LEGAL description for questioning when there might be charges filed. Unfortunately, LE has to go all out to protect the rights of non-english speaking folks when being possibly charged with a crime. Otherwise, the charges will be dropped.

And I doubt that LPD has a bi-lingual officer on all shifts (accounting for days off, vacation, sick day, etc.).

A human being suffers a violent knife attack. Obviously an occasion for offering speculation and various observations about minority groups and immigrants. God bless America.
