Stockton resident stabbed, hit with bat after confronting three taggers

San Diego police, including officers from the Street Gang Unit, responded to a stabbing on the 2900 block of K Street Wednesday, December 2, at about 5:15 p.m.

Police say that three Hispanic males were allegedly tagging a residence on K Street in the Stockton neighborhood when a 30-year-old male confronted them and asked what they were doing.

After a brief argument, the victim was stabbed once in the abdomen and hit with a baseball bat.

The victim told police that the three suspects fled the scene in a dark-colored car northbound on 30th Street.

Paramedics treated the victim at the scene and transported him to a hospital where he was being treated for non-life threatening injuries.

SDPD watch commander Robert Heims said the Street Gang Unit is continuing their investigation.

One should never confront taggers. Instead call 911, and get away from the site where it's happening. People have been killed by taggers in some cities for trying to get them to stop.

My first reaction to this story was "why are seeing a story about a city in the central valley?" Then I remembered that "Stockton" is a name of one of the old 'hoods in the city of SD. When I first arrived in greater SD, there was a whole section of the city called "Southeast San Diego", and another one called (on the city's own neighborhood signs) "East San Diego." I can't think of when I last heard or saw either of those. It was the Tribune, and later the U-T that went out and dug up ancient developer-designated names for sections of Southeast, and started using them. Never mind that many or most native San Diegans had no knowledge of those names. And so, we know have such locations as Stockton, Darnall, Mountain View, Shelltown, and a number of others which tell many of us nothing about the location.

I digress. dwbat is oh-so-right about not confronting taggers. His advice is good for other things, too. Yeah, you want to tell them off and get them to stop, but too often it is at your peril. If you arm yourself, it might prevent violence, but then you might find yourself in more trouble by far than anything that could happen to the miscreants. Call the cops, even when you know they'll not show up in time, and keep your mouth shut until they arrive.

A while back there was a push to get away from calling Southeast San Diego Southeast San Diego because it was linked with poverty, crime and minorities. So the Politically Correct folks began to call the various areas of Southeast San Diego by the obscure developer names so that those living in Southeast San Diego could feel better about the area they lived in. As for confronting 'taggers' one has to remember that most taggers are gang bangers marking their territories and are probably armed. Never risk your life to save property, people yes, property no.

Alex. those neighborhood names were a result of pure political correctness. I hesitated to say that above. But now that you said that, I can't be blamed for it. As to whether the residents of those obscure areas of town actually feel better, well, I doubt it. Most are just getting by, and a few are only able to survive. The name of their part of the city just doesn't matter to most of them.

What did that idiot think was going to happen? If I see taggers or other miscreants, I call the police. They're paid to deal with lowlives. I'm not.
