Ventura’s been rocked by the deadly stabbing of a man having dinner with his family at a local restaurant last Wednesday night.
Without provocation or previous interaction, a transient walked up to the 35-year-old man and stabbed him in the neck. Ventura police were called earlier that evening about the transient harassing passersby.
AirTalk examines the department’s response.
