    wise one, why are you so angry? It’s awful for ANY young person to ruin their life by turning to crime, or by any OTHER means. ALL young people need to be counselled and taught that violence is not the way. And I believe where there is life, there is the potential for learning.

    Yeah, anon513. It’s unfortunate that when one of these violent young potential
    murderers shoot somebody and get caught the savage’s life, for all intents and purposes, is over. Maybe the murdering, raping, wilding, cajacking savages should just be confined to house arrest and counseling on refraining from shooting and murdering at will.

    Such a shame. Because of crime, these young people’s lives are over before they’ve had a chance to really live them. My Prayers to the victim for a complete and speedy recovery.
