According to the police, a 49-year-old man reportedly stabbed four members of his family with a meat cleaver on Saturday during an argument over Hillary Clinton’s defeat in the election.
Their 67-year-old mum, Yvonne Braswell, said the argument started in her Flatbush apartment when her sons, Maurice and Dwight, got into an argument over why Trump won and Hillary lost. According to her, neither Maurice nor Dwight voted for Trump, but that the argument heated up and Maurice grabbed a meat cleaver and attacked his brother with it. He slashed his brother in the head and hand. When other family members tried to break up the fight, they ended up getting cut up as well. His sister got cut in the fight and had to get 17 stitches in her thumb, his mum and nephew also got cut in the right hand.
“They’re always in confrontation, they grew up like that, bickering. “But it’s been a long time since they went this far. Many, many years.”
Maurice is awaiting arraignment in Brooklyn Supreme Court.
