RIP..when I passed by a young woman was sitting there and crying...everyone who passed by felt bad. I was speechless..RIP. GOD BLESS. This is tragic. It is hard to know who you are getting involved never knows. People of all eschelons in life wear masks...abuse is rampant...victims are victims. So Sad.

A man with 25 arrests, many for violent crimes, should not be walking the street. And yet, he was released for the umpteenth time, only to claim another victim, this time murdering the poor guy for interrupting the beating of his aunt.
The criminal justice system has many problems, from top to bottom. In this case it failed us all by letting a violent sociopath out of prison to commit more crimes.
