A homeless psycho killer who randomly stabbed a patron in a crowded Ventura restaurant to death as his 5-year-old daughter sat on his lap was reported hours earlier for disruptive behavior.
The rocket-scientist cops however decided he was not a threat.
Soon after that, Jamal Jackson ruthlessly murdered Anthony Mele. By the way, Jackson is a convicted felon.
Mr. Mele and his wife were eating dinner with their daughter. The girl was sitting on her father’s lap when Jackson walked up and stabbed Mele in the neck.
The two men had not interacted before the attack.
Police confirmed that a bystander reported a man — who turned out to be Jackson — for disruptive behavior several hours before the stabbing.
Command center staff monitored the man via a pier security camera system for more than 20 minutes before deciding he didn’t seem to be a threat.
According to the Los Angeles Times, Jackson also had half a dozen contacts with police in Ventura since the beginning of the year, including an arrest after a physical fight at a park.
He was also stopped on March 31 after a passerby reported he was brandishing a knife.
Police searched his bag and found a knife but no charges were filed.
Jackson has a lengthy rap sheet including charges in San Bernardino County, as well as convictions for burglary and unlawful sexual intercourse dating back to the 1990s.
