Can we take a moment to appreciate the ambiguity in this article? I had to read it four times to realize it meant the “Students Stopped [the suspect who was doing the stabbing]” instead of “The Students Stopped Stabbing the Suspect” where the students were doing the stabbing.At first I thought it had to be an onion article… like “FINALLY they stopped stabbing this person.” But it was NPR and I was confused. Yay ambiguity!
