  1. It’s sad how one brother could have been so impatient with the other, how he could have completely ignored the older brother’s medical condition and treated him in the inhumane way he did. Worst yet is the fact he that the persons from the community who were present when the incident took place and did nothing to stop it, are now discouraging persons from talking to the police. Really really sad how the lives of two brothers could have been so permanently affected and altered in a split second.

    We as a society need to be more tolerant, a lot more tolerant and patient with each other. Stanfill didn’t deserve to die like this. My condolences to the Stephen family.
