A beautiful day in the neighborhood

Posted By on Fri, Oct 22, 2010 at 9:06 AM

It apparently started with an argument between kids at school. Back home, an angry mama intervened, with a knife. The neck of a pregnant woman was sliced. A felonious boyfriend arrived with pistol in pocket. The Little Rock police sorted it all out. The report is on the jump. All survived, including a baby delivered after the cutting.

I'd note the children involved go to school. There, teachers will be blamed for their test score shortcomings.

On 10-21-10, officers responded to a Disturbance with a Weapon Call at 4309 W. 10th. Upon their arrival, officers found Natasha King being detained by the occupants of the house. Ms. King was armed with a steak knife and officers had to take the knife from her hand. Officers were then informed that Ms. King had stabbed April Watkins in the left side of her neck, lacerating an artery. Officers were informed that Ms. Watkins was seven months pregnant and that family members had transported her to UAMS.

While placing Ms. King in a police car, Ms. King’s boyfriend, Kenneth Lynch arrived on scene armed with a pistol in his pocket. Officers were able to get Lynch in custody and recover the pistol. Lynch is a convicted Felon. Both King and Lynch were transported to the Downtown Detective Division. Detectives and Crime Scene Unit responded to the scene and UAMS. Detectives were informed that Ms. Watkins was in ICU in stable condition and that medical personnel had delivered the baby and the child was in stable condition.

Ms. King stated that she and her neighbors were arguing over their children when her neighbors began beating her and she was defending herself when she stabbed April Watkins. Ms. King was transported to the Pulaski County Jail where she was charged with Battery in the First Degree. Kenneth Lynch was transported to the Pulaski County Jail where he was charged with Possession of Firearms by Certain Persons.

NOTE: A supplemental police report indicates the scrap begin in a fight between two neighbor children whose fight at school over $3 continued at home. King intervened on the side of her son. Another woman said she shouldn't be fighting a child. King then reportedly went home and got a knife and returned. Neighbors disarmed her, though she first "nicked" someone in the neck. She went home and got another knife and that led to the slicing of the pregnant woman, the report says. A woman who said she held King down until officers arrived reported being bitten on the arm and breast.

  • Rapert compares Bill Clinton to Orval Faubus

    Sen. Jason Rapert (R-Conway)  was on "Capitol View" on KARK, Channel 4, this morning, and among other things that will likely inspire you to yell at your computer screen, he said he expects someone in the legislature to file a bill to do ... something about changing the name of the Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport.
  • Fake news

    So fed up was young Edgar Welch of Salisbury, N.C., that Hillary Clinton was getting away with running a child-sex ring that he grabbed a couple of guns last Sunday, drove 360 miles to the Comet Ping Pong pizzeria in Washington, D.C., where Clinton was supposed to be holding the kids as sex slaves, and fired his AR-15 into the floor to clear the joint of pizza cravers and conduct his own investigation of the pedophilia syndicate of the former first lady, U.S. senator and secretary of state.
  • Reality TV prez

    There is almost nothing real about "reality TV." All but the dullest viewers understand that the dramatic twists and turns on shows like "The Bachelor" or "Celebrity Apprentice" are scripted in advance. More or less like professional wrestling, Donald Trump's previous claim to fame.
