An Augusta woman who cut her best friend because she didn’t help out in a fight pleaded guilty to aggravated assault Thursday.

Tamika Gilbert, 20, attacked Fantasia Lambert with a kitchen knife on April 22, 2011. Lambert suffered cuts on her face and arm.

Gilbert pleaded guilty in Richmond County Superior Court. Judge Michael N. Annis accepted a plea negotiation for the assault case. Her two-year sentence will run concurrently with two years Gilbert must serve for violating the terms of her probation for an earlier theft conviction.

Its time that congress does

Its time that congress does something. We must have knife control. That knife could have just as easily killed the lady.

Roadki2 - I think I catch your drift.

It seems the National Progressives Party (aka National Social Democrats) could care less about the reason, the real cause. Which is environmental and a overly promoted aggressive culture.

Their goal is clearly focused on banning firearms in civilian hands. Because it would be UN-PC to address the aspects of a physically over aggressive culture, or what/who caused or enabled it to develop. Given the failure of too much liberal PC understanding and too much false PC sympathy.

BTW: the Number 1 Google search yesterday in the USA was Hitler and Gun Control. That is a lot searches.

Another great google search about Hitler....

is the source of his financial aid during his rise to power in the war torn, depression burdened Germany of the 1930's. Look to NY banks. Banks who were providing loans to both England and Germany.

What a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive.....the flag waving, patriotic, Bible toting American public.

If You Are To Assault Anyone

use a knife. You will serve less time than using a gun. I wonder how much time you would serve if you used fork?
