It's sad to say that we live in a very wicked world and in hearing this, you just wonder if the world is getting sicker, respect? don't think that is in the dictionary any more, what do they teach them nowadays? It's certainly not respect. You can't trust people easily, you can't do things for people without it being taken the wrong way or seen as a soft touch. True it is very scary my friend but trouble is it just gets worst. When they do sentence this 'piece of scum' he'll no doubt get a minimal sentence which of course sends a message out to all the scum in society that crime does indeed PAY!

the teenager who did this was 19. He ended her life and threw his own away...and the spoils he gained by using her cards wont help him either as he is in jail....pointless crime, and senseless crimes....

These young folks don't respect seniors because they will never taught to. They stopped listening when they were young and was importe dto teach them values. Or they hang out with the wrong crowd and get peer pressured into doing the wrong things. These young folks have alot to learn...Where have all the manners gone to?

You are right on the point! We did not speak back and act rude without getting set straight quick...It was not tolerated..I raised my children to know right from wrong.. ..nowadays they dont seem to raise them to know right from wrong anymore....
