    Sick, very sick. I hope the 4 people recover fully. I send my condolences to the family of the murdered person. So is this the new thing now when you don’t have your gun handy? I wonder what kind of drugs he was on to get him to do something so terrible. What was his home life, if any, like? This is a new low in murder. They’ll catch him, they always do!

      It looks like a recent mug shot. This dude probably has a rap sheet a mile long.

    2 more. The victim was an “illegal” as well.
