Old men getting drunk and stabbing their friends, isn't this the second of its kind? There was one back some time, where they were out and had an arguement and he stabbed his buddy when they were drinking. Common occurance, something in the sake.

Here we go again. If is not drugs it is alcohol. They must be both under the weather or out of booze, and arguing who will pay for the next round. One thing is for sure, you can't ban kitchen knifes at home.

The authorites should give at least some 20 years in , such a warm-blooded pensioner is a walking talking menace to his peers . So what if you were drunk ??? , it means you can stab your neighbor . what is this , a Banana Republic ?
