Barbara Lee, 45, primary suspect, thought the group was throwing gang signs at her, and responded by flashing gang signs back at them, cops said. The group motioned for her to leave them alone.
Eventually Lee left the bar but returned with two members of her crew, 19-year-old Marco Ibanez and a 17-year-old not identified.
Lee and Ibanez were arrested after they stabbed the group in a feeding frenzy of hand-gestured rage. The melee also resulted in the bars bouncer getting a bottle smashed over his head, all of them ended up in the hospital.
Are gangstas powered on just a brain-stem? None of them has heard of a deaf person?. Baseball catchers better take notice.
This story is tragic, and worse, it does seem to point to an element in American culture that fester without higher-level brain function, ready to act out in dangerously violent ways - like the Terminator androids programmed as hunter-killers, even across centuries of time.
