    These murderes deserve nothing less than being tortured to death in public! Just putting them in jail, or even just killing them is not enough. Examples need to be made of them. My best friend, who I have known since pre-school all the way to university, John Avilez has passed away. He didn’t have to go this way. He deserved much much better than this. He was a very kind and good human being, and his death has shocked and hurt so many people. Something has to be done about these animals! Cannot even call these killers humans. Because human beings value life. These creatures do not. Examples need to be made now so that we do not lose any more loved ones. RIP John Avilez Jr. RIP my brother…

    Ravi, you said it best. I couldn’t agree more.

    People may call what is required, “draconian”, but the bottom line is that those who have no regard for human life, inevitably must be dealt with, accordingly.

    These murderous thugs are a detriment to our society and they should be put down, without mercy.

    At the rate our youth are killing each other the future for tomorrow’s generation will be gravely impacted, it saddens me deeply that my beautiful country has come to this, where are the leaders when we need them? Where are the preachers when we need them?
