The Strange Tale of a Court Street Stabbing

And a reminder of the sad state of our mental heath care system.
Court Street resident Ron Lindo told The Brooklyn Paper that Jackson
Alexandre jabbed him in the shoulder inside their apartment at about 8
pm after Lindo told Alexandre that he should seek psychiatric help.

"I noticed that he was stressed for the past couple of days. He was
very withdrawn and paranoid," said a stitched-up Lindo, who lived with
Alexandre at the second-floor residence near Hamilton Avenue for the
past year. "I wanted him to go to the hospital. I figured he needed
some kind of treatment."
