    Props to the cops. But how soon until they’re released pending trial? A day?

    Wow, 8:30 pm stabbing at that spot? Anybody know more?

      I witnessed it (I live across the street) and called the police. There was a loud and nasty verbal altercation around 7:30-45 involving, I believe, the people who run the book table by the Tivoli/Giant and someone else. It died down but started up again less than an hour later. This time, bystanders started shouting and one of the perpetrators (I believe from the book table, but it was hard to tell) began wielding a kitchen knife and repeatedly stabbed the person he was shouting at. An officer came out of Giant with his gun drawn probably 60-90 seconds after the stabbing, and MPD had a full response and the whole street blocked off a minute later.

    That’s the second time in recent memory that a vendor at that spot went berserk and started stabbing people …
