Why did this newspaper talk about Kendell Witherspoon or a homeless man being stabbed? What do they have to do with her? Reporter who can't write or what?

The other stabbings were simply added in as an additional news byte because this article was about a stabbing.
I hope it really was just self defense, and she will be proven that way. Real nice of her cousin to tell this to the News;
But Winston's cousin Tedra Laws, 31, said he was never in the subway station, but was trying to catch a cab to bring a present to his daughter.

"We can't answer why she would stab him," she said of the teen. "She had a history of stabbing people. If you had an argument with her, she'd stab you."

Kid went into a primordial protect one's own life if threatened. I'm certain she wouldn't go up to a thud and stab him for no reason. Subway security cameras should help.
