Family of stabbing victim sets up crowdfunding campaign to pay for medical bills

The man who was stabbed after confronting a pair of tire slashers last weekend has a crowdfunding campaign to help pay for the cost of his medical bills.

Johnny Robinson — or Johnny Sunset as he’s known to friends — owns a tattoo shop, Electric Traveler Tattoo in Ballard. He was at his shop on Friday night when he saw the men slashing tires outside. Robinson chose to intervene, and was stabbed in the chest by one of the suspects.

According to the GoFundMe campaign details, Robinson’s injuries were life-threatening. He was rushed to the hospital and underwent several surgeries to repair a punctured lung. While he’s now stable, the cost of the whole ordeal is crippling for Robinson and his wife and two kids.

“The overwhelming amount of medical bills will set him, his family, and his business back,” the campaign reads. “Johnny was trying to help make the community a better and safer place; we are hoping now the community of Seattle will give back to support him in his recovery.”

The campaign goal is $15,000 — as of 8am Tuesday morning, $10,384 had been raised by 122 people in 24 hours. To donate to Robinson and his family, click here.

Police are still looking for the two men responsible for the crime.

  1. Sent $100 because god knows the City of Seattle will do nothing for a hard working tax payer defending his property, home and family.

    1. Agree 100 per cent. We have the worst govt. here. Higher and higher taxes, little interest in more police which we need badly. More crime all the time. Small businesses being driven out, I live in ?Crown Hill and it is creeping up here fast.

    1. Hi! Thanks for your support, but I’m currently virtue-signalling a vulnerable community member’s right to crap on the sidewalk. It’s a survival poop! You should get woke, friend!

  2. This guy is a awesome! Too bad he didn’t kill those two losers with the bat.
    Hey elencho/Truth: here’s what a real man looks like and how one acts in these situations.

    Hey Folks, remember, you have a RIGHT to own a firearm and chainsaws are available at your local hardware store or online.


    1. I bet if you asked a Viking to describe what you can see on any street in Seattle right now, they could go outside and look. Vikings are real good at, you know, existing at the place they claim to live. It’s the Viking way.

    1. I’m guessing you are from Canada or another country where they actually have health care coverage and not just medical insurance. Here in the U.S. medical insurance doesn’t cover the full cost of almost anything. If you own a small business you may also be covered for most of the costs but if you file a claim your future costs will likely go up by a higher amount than the actual medical bill.

      1. Also a good reason not to risk injury to protect a car tire. In Trumpmerica, odds are the tires are better insured than your own self. Because fweedumb!

          1. Tough guy jackoff fantasies will get you killed, Liam Neeson. Well, not you specifically, since you would never leave the house. But anybody else.

            You know I’m right about insurance. Millions of Americans can afford car insurance — in fact they have no choice if the bank holds the title, which it most likely does — who couldn’t dream of even getting themselves shitty insurance, let alone the kind of gold plated heath plan that would not place you in financial hardship if you get yourself stabbed chasing down street vandals.

            You Trumpers are so passionate about things. It’s why you think the magic sky cloth won’t freedom unless we all stand for the special song.

            People matter more than things, fake sock puppet guy who never leaves the house. The reason you’re egging on more fools to get themselves stabbed is that you don’t give two shits about them. You don’t give two shits about Johnny. To you he’s just another thing you can exploit.
