LEAVE THE KNIFE…TAKE THE FALAFEL

53rd and 6th Food Cart
53rd and 6th Food Cart

The trial started yesterday in the infamous “falafel cart” slaying of October 2006.  According to news reports, a teenager and 2 friends cut in line at the well-known 53rd and 6th food cart.  One person in line left and got into their SUV, then drove up and stabbed and killed one of the line-cutters.    The man said he was acting in self-defense, but walking away and coming back to stab someone doesn’t exactly sound like self-defense.   The media calls it the “falafel cart” stabbing, but this cart doesn’t even serve falafel.  It was also 4am at the time.  I wonder if the defendant is going to end up cutting in line at the prison commisary.

Did you ever have someone try to cut in line, and if so, what was the outcome?
