Thankful, that doesn't seem real fair. I was not there, but here is what I heard.

The fight started in a boardwalk bar, where the deceased hit several patrons. Including friend of the accused, whom he tried to defend.

The victim, went to the bar with weapons, including the knife that stabbed the accused.

The accused, after being stabbed managed to remove the attackers knife, which unfortunately was used against him, in self defense.

I am told the witnesses say, the victim was running down the street waving weapons and yelling that he was going to kill the accused.

Why you would just be happy that someone was jailed is beyond me, since the accused did NOT have any weapons when he went out on a friday night with friends, who he tried to defend.

Again I was not there, but i believe my post is pretty accurate, read the abc7 report on the first day, it clearly says that the weapon was that of the deceased. And clearly only used on him after the accused was in fact stabbed and managed to get it away, while saving his own life. .

Elvis, by your account, and I believe you! The "Suspect" in this case is a Hero! The justice system will prove that in a court of law! I would recommend that all of you that witnessed the event go to the LAPD Station at centinella and culver and report what you saw to the detectives! That will only HELP your friend! This city will fry him if you guys don't stand up for him. And it sounds like he was there in a moment of great need for you all. Time to make sure his story is properly told.
If what you say is true, I hope it all works out for him! Good Luck

to the above posts:
Absolutely right!! Dany is a great kid and was lookin out for his friends. If you knew Daniel Chaves you knew what a blast this guy was to have around. WELCOME HOME DANI

Ed, Thanks a lot for seeing that I was posting the truth as I knew it, and not some fabrication, as I saw by others like the guy who lied in the longs drug post on the LA Times blog. I called the Longs, and they had no idea anything happened until police questioned them. Unfortunately my reply post to that fabrication never posted.

From what I hear every thing worked out, for the accused. Because in reality, he went out on a friday evening with friends, and no weapons. Whereas the deceased was disruptive and carrying the very weapon used against him, in self defense after stabbing the accused.

Personally i feel for both families, the pressure must be overwhelming at times.


the victim always cared a knife so that was nothing unusally
