  2. OK people. Let me clean it up for Monk. If they are found guilty then throw them in the sulphur spring. I heard it is human friendly nowadays. Better?!

  3. Once again I, have to comment to tell some writers;that politics has its place.Lets have some common sense here, a life was lost so tragically something the families didn’t plan for, yet someone chose to involve politics. Let’s not cast our personal judgement, but allow the police to investigate the matter thoroughly, bring the perpreprators to Justice and;If, found guilty the full extent of the law must be applied. No one has the authority to take someone life in this manner. However, if the are found guilty, it’s my opinion that the Grand Mother should pay dearly, for ,too long now parents are encouraging their children to do the wrong things, simply because they’re benefiting from their misdeeds. I rest my case.

    • “it’s my opinion that the Grand Mother should pay dearly, for ,too long now parents are encouraging their children to do the wrong things, simply because they’re benefiting from their misdeeds.” Senior, I totally agree with this….
