    It was in self-defense.

    I am guessing that you know these fine, upstanding individuals…in my opinion, a collapsed lung and bleeding out doesn't sound like self-defense…unless, of course, you mean that the sister came at her with a knife first so she stabbed her before she could be stabbed. Either way, it's a shame that knives were involved at all. Especially with all those small children in the house.

      Well its always a shame to use a knife at all. But when you have no choice its sometimes needed, she'll be in the hospital 3 days tops while they re-inflate her lung. The entire situation is a shame
