My husband was telling me this evening that there was some trouble where he works. Apparently, at another barn on the farm, a man went after another man with a knife! He cut the man's arm pretty bad, but witnesses say the man was trying to stab him in the side. The man is trouble, and everyone knows he keeps a knife on him, and this guy had a problem with someone once before, and I think the other person quit because of it. He's been there a while, has family that works there, and doesn't like new people coming in. The guy he attacked hadn't been there for very long. This is what has me soooo upset, and my husband is not happy either. The farm manager was going to BLOW IT OFF! OMG! He sent the guy home for the day, and the one he stabbed - he had ANOTHER worker drive him home! Well his arm got bad, wouldn't stop bleeding so he had to go to the hospital, and I guess the farm manager did go up there. As far as we know no police reports have been filed! AND the farm manager was going to let the guy keep his job!!!!! My husband told him no way....and told him no one feels safe now. So I guess the guy is fired. BUT HE SHOULD BE IN JAIL!!!!! The other guy wasn't doing anything, he was watering horses, and the guy come up behind him - didn't even work in that barn! Well.... the guy that was stabbed is my husband's cousin's boyfriend and the father of her baby! They are young, and HE COULD HAVE DIED had that guy got the shot he wanted! I told my husband his cousin's boyfriend NEEDS to file a police report ASAP, and get that guy arrested. The farm SHOULD get in trouble for not taking care of this and reporting it to the police! He SHOULD sue the farm for all medical costs, lost time, and anything else he can get for their ignorance in trying to blow this off. These are good people, and I am just really heartbroken about this. No way did he deserve to be attacked like that! I still can't believe everything I was told about how this was made out to not be a big deal. The farm manager is a nice guy from what I hear, and he has been my husband's friend, but this is just over the top, and my husband is displeased and beside himself because of it. Anyway, I just had to tell someone outside of the horse community, and I don't want to get my family worked up. Because of course, now the concern is, will this guy act out when he finds out he doesn't have a job? If he got mad because a new guy came in, what is going to stop him from going on a rampage if he is as whacked out as I hear him to be?
