    Violence will always take place because people don’t pray.Human beings need to put God in their lives.These two people been together since high school all these years and look how it turns out.Knifes kill am sorry to say she should not serve life but she should do some time at least 10 years.because I truly believe anger should be control but without God and high meditation it cannot be achieved.People let the environment and the demonic everyday entities of life over power them.People need to check out the father he will guide and lead them.My condolences go out to his family and friends,and not forgetting their son.The kids always suffer.And the young woman should be offered spiritual counseling to learn how to deal with her anger.And the churches should step in to teach the people how to pray.God Bless my people.

      How can the church teach them to pray if they don’t want to go to believe and trust God for themselves…. Death penalty it’s time they bring it back.

        Praying is not going to help, God himself is a muder the evidence is in the bible

    We need to exercise self control, respect for self and others. We need to be bold and brave when it comes to leaving an abusive relationship no matter who is the victim. Forget material things leave and get to safe zone, material things can be replaced, a new relationship can happen but life cannot be replaced.

    Capital punishment doesn’t prevent murders. Period! When someone is bent on committing murder, he/she does not think about the consequences. Emotions replace common sense. Today’s society lacks Love, Empathy, Caring and Tact. There is too much hatred, cursing, jealousy, selfishness, vulgarity, indecency and apathy. Our society seems to be adopting the laws of the jungle, only the fittest of the fittest shall survive. We have to make a positive a turn around or perish like fools. We need more collectivism and less individualism.

    The penalties for armed with Dangerous Weapon and possession of Unlicensed Firearm and ammunition is too lenient. The so called Magestrates and Grudges in the Courts sides the Criminals .They give them time to pay the fine

    The government alone cannot stop the crimes. It is everyone that has to return to God and pray and do good. Stop doing evil, be obedient to God, that’s what will stop the crimes.
