FERRIDAY — A Ferriday woman is behind bars after she allegedly cut and stabbed another woman with a kitchen knife in the middle of Georgia Avenue.

Lakeidra Ann Turner, 31, 204 Georgia Ave., was charged Thursday with attempted second-degree murder.

Ferriday Police Chief Richard Madison said officers responded to a call at 5 p.m. Wednesday of a disturbance on Georgia Avenue.

During the course of the investigation, Madison said, officers found that Turner had gotten into an altercation with another woman, with whom she was friends.

After the altercation escalated and both women began assaulting each other, Madison said, Turner retrieved a white-handled kitchen knife from her house and cut the victim on both arms and back.

The victim was transported to Riverland Medical Center where she was treated for her wounds.

Once officers questioned the victim in the hospital, Madison said Turner was arrested and charged.

No bond had been set for Turner as of Thursday evening.

Madison said the case is still under investigation.

    Good ol dave. Still can’t make a decent sentence and still haven’t figured out the caps lock. But, for your edification, a ghetto does not have to be black, as your raciest mind thinks. A ghetto is someplace that the inhabitants have let deteriorate into a slum because they don’t care. That is in the present tense, in the past a ghetto was someplace where a minority group was forced to live, such as the Jewish ghetto in Warsaw during WWII and the Jewish ghetto in Venice. Perhaps if you had paid attention in Public School, you might have learned to speak and you might have learned something about the world.

    I honestly believe he is calling in the Ghetto, because that is in fact what it is. Since when did telling the truth in this country make you a racist? Is it racist when I say the majority of people incarcerated in this country are African American? No, that is a fact. A fact is “truth”–nothing discriminatory or racist about that. If you have a problem with the “facts”, then do something within your community to change it…instead of blaming others for your problems.

    Higher food prices, taxes and thieving politicians have nothing to do with teaching your children morals, values and how to behave properly. There is a difference between poverty and moral bankruptcy. The big social experiment of the last few generations has created a welfare state in which personal responsibility is discouraged. Immoral behavior is encouraged. Marriage is penalized and fiscal responsibility is penalized. Females are financially rewarded for producing offspring without naming the father. It has nothing to do with the cost of food and these people don’t pay taxes, yet they are all in line for a “refund” come tax time.
