Lady Stabs Woman...At An Anger-Management Class

By Robert Paul Reyes


"A Seattle-area woman attending a court-ordered anger management class was charged with assault after she stabbed a classmate, police said.

Faribah Maradiaga, 19, of Bellevue was being held in lieu of $50,000 bail in the Kings County Jail pending her Oct. 25 arraignment, The Seattle Times reported Thursday. She now has two pending assault charges, including the one that put her in the class." UPI

That`s one way to flunk your anger-management class "

Anger management courses are a farce, a violence-prone individual isn`t going to learn how to control his violent temper in just a few courses. It`s takes intensive therapy to teach an angry person non-violent approaches to dealing with stressful situations.

What precipitated Maradiaga`s extreme reaction, did her classmate threaten to steal her boyfriend? Nah, the two Rhodes Scholars were arguing over the relative merits of a video game.

Obviously a woman who stabs someone for such a frivolous reason isn`t going to get her anger in check after a couple of anger-management courses.

Let`s get real most violent persons will never change, the best we can do is lock them away so they can`t hurt anyone other than fellow inmates.

This oxygen thief has two pending assault charges, including the one that put her in the anger-management class. The judge should throw the book at this sorry excuse for a human being.
