While catching up on some island news a very terrifying case caught my attention. According to the Jamaica Star news site, a blind man had allegedly beaten his girlfriend to death. Shocking indeed. The man gave his statement in court on why he committed such a dreadful act. Apparently he ‘overreacted’ to what felt like a piece of board being pushed against his side, thinking it was a knife he immediately went in search of a piece of metal. As a result, his girlfriend was beaten to death.
This is just chilling. I can understand how on edge people are these days, but if someone had a knife at your side would that person allow you to search for a weapon to attack them with? The story just seems weird, and I can see why this man will undergo psychiatric evaluation, because this all seems too crazy to believe.
What do you think?
