So i discovered this post on the web and i was told that just posting it as the whole piece is not a good thing, I got consent from the original author and read up how to curate content, so that is it.......i thought this was interesting because it highlights some of the highs and lows that I encountered when i was working inside the business.
A Queens barber used his scissors to fatally stab a teen in a battle over a $50 pair of headphones, police sources said.
Cedric Simpson, 34, allegedly plunged his shears into Carl Richardson, 19, at the Select Stylez Barbershop in Laurelton at around 2?p.m. Thursday.
Im numb, the teens father, Carl Richardson Sr., said. I cant believe it was over Headsets.
Richardson, who was a regular customer at Select Stylez, went to the barbershop on Wednesday, sold Simpson a Bluetooth headphone set and said hed come back to collect the money.
When the young man returned on Thursday, Simpson refused to give him either the money or return the headphones, according to Richardsons family.
A scuffle broke out, and was quickly broken up by the staff and patrons.
But then the enraged Simpson lunged at the teen, allegedly stabbing him repeatedly in the stomach.
It shouldve been over, and then he grabbed the shears and stabbed Carl to death, the victims sister, Sherina Richardson, said.
I just cant believe it. All he wanted was to get paid what was owed him.
Richardson was rushed to Franklin General Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
He was a lovely boy, said the victims mother, Johann Richardson.
Im not just saying that because he was my son.
The barber claimed that Richardson darted into the shop and threatened him, a source said.
Simpson was charged with murder.
