Over the years KFC has earned a bit of a reputation for his rocky relationship with the blind community, but blindos might as well be a buffalo covered Entenmann’s compared to how much this guy fucking hates deaf people. I’m surprised that Robert Jarrell Neal didn’t have some affiliation with the Bloods because there’s really no other way to explain why he would suddenly decide to grab a kitchen knife and go after a couple of Crip(ple)s like this. It’s almost like he decided Wednesday was a good day to cross “Stab a deaf guy” off the bucket list and didn’t think of the gang sign angle until he was sitting in the back of the cop car. In fairness, I can kind of see where he’s coming from. I don’t trust people who can read lips and have this weird thing where I get creeped out when people who sound like they’re permanently chewing on a peanut butter and fluff sandwich when they talk. I appreciate the effort, but not as much as I appreciate maintaining my comfort level. Plus you’re kidding yourself if you don’t classify deaf people as a gang in the first place. They have their own series of intricate hand signals for communication, they’re all minorities, their initiation ritual is physically taxing and once you’re in you’re a member for life. But that doesn’t mean they deserve to be stabbed. Socially ostracizing them should be good enough.
PS- How cocky is it that deaf people are included in the handicapped category for felony assault? Let’s save that one for the people that can’t fight back.
