Deaf Man Stabbed Because Sign Language Mistaken To Be Gang Signs


Burington, North Carolina police are saying that 45-year-old Terrance Ervin Daniels was stabbed several times after another man mistook his sign language to another deaf man for gang signs.

According to Sgt. Mark Yancey, Daniels was engaged in a "conversation" using sign language with another deaf man when a third man, 22-year-old Robert Jerell Neal, saw it and assumed the two men were flashing gang signs to each other. He then grabbed a kitchen knife and proceeded to stab Daniels, but not the other man.

A neighbor saw Daniels and called for an ambulance. Daniels was rushed to UNC Hospital in Chapel Hill and was in stable condition after the crime on Wednesday.
