Short Fuse at Anger Management Class Leads to Stabbing

Angermgmt I sometimes write about legal matters I find on the awesome FAIL Blog, so let me return the favor by offering a clear "Anger Management Class FAIL" that FAIL Blog is welcome to run with. Surely we will be seeing this in an upcoming episode of some cop drama on TV.

The Seattle Times reports (via Legal Juice) that at a recent 9 a.m. anger management class run by the court system, Faribah Maradiaga ambled into the classroom while a video on anger management was being shown. Maradiaga promptly began complaining about the movie and disrupting the class, prosecutors say. This led another presumably short-fused attendee (aka, the "victim") to tell Maradiaga that "the video was good and to give it a chance."

It was at this point that the teachings in the video (deep breaths? count to 10?) might have helped Maradiaga. Rather than go the "Peaceful Warrior" route, however, Maradiaga allegedly stood up, started talking "trash" to the soon-to-be victim, pulled out a knife with a 3-inch blade and stabbed the woman several times in the arm and shoulder. She also threatened to kill the victim's family.

I assume she also failed the class.
