Arthur E. Smallwood.
What the hell is with black people’s faces?
Seriously, what evolutionary advantage could it have to be some long-headed big-lipped nappy-haired ape?
You would think they would at least have bred the better looking ones to make themselves look nicer over time.
The Madison County State’s Attorney’s Office charged 54-year-old Arthur E. Smallwood for attempted first-degree murder and aggravated battery.
Police said Smallwood stabbed the victim, a cab driver for Alton’s Best Cabs, over 12 times causing injury to the victim’s back, shoulder and neck.
The driver. who is an immigrant from Norway, said he recalls a passenger pulling a knife a few minutes after hopping into his cab.
“He jumps over behind me, grabs me around the neck and tells me to not do anything. Instinctively, I grabbed his hands and pushed it away from me,” said the driver. “I did not realize he had a knife until he stabbed me 5-6 times. I grabbed his hand trying to stop him.”
