    He lived, was treated and returned to prison.
    I'm sure most of us are asking two questions:
    1). Why didn't the stabber finish the job?
    2). What took those inmates so long?

    He'll get another chance.

    This guy, and Gunther Parche, are Exhibits 1A and 1B in my long-running belief that any time any fan runs onto the playing or performing surface at a sports contest or music concert, he needs to be put down, lights-out, down for the count, immediately.

    While nobody has more disdain for Barry Bonds than I do, I was amazed/aghast a couple weeks ago when some dickhead fan runs out on the field to him. He never should have made it more than three steps onto the turf before he was instantly sent to the severe-head-injuries ward for about 6 months.

    Add people that interfere with balls in play to that list. Steve Bartman would have gotten the death penalty (not a Cubs fan, just a baseball fan who can't stand instances like that).

    It was prison...I'd put odds the weapon wasn't the best.

    They can make a pretty good shank in prison without a lot of trying. It very well could have been a good weapon. But obviously not good enough.

    See Loeb, Richard and Dahmer, Jeffrey for reference.

    The Bartman ball wasn't in play. It was in the stands. Give the guy a break.

    And if the Cubs would have just turned the double play opportunity they had later in the inning, Bartman doesn't matter.

    Just like the Cardinals had the opportunity to overcome the Denkinger mistake.

    Now, back to the thread.
