    This is a sad and tragic story. Even if this is the one time he used a violent means of making a point, and I have my doubts about that, this is a very final solution to a temporary problem. The reason I have my doubts that this is the only such violent incident is that this is a very big line to cross in how one treats others, to actually kill them. Does anyone really go from 0 to 80 immediately like this, without other smaller incidents to blur that line? Maybe, but it is probably a very rare instance.

    I read a report that a friend told the media that he was furious with his girlfriend for coming home late after a concert. What an extreme and senseless response to a situation that could happen to anyone; has anyone ever tried to leave the parking lot after a concert? It can take hours before everyone is able to leave. Whatever he made her lateness mean in his mind, the end result was tragic.
    My heart goes out to the poor child, suddenly an orphan through these tragic events.

    Pro athletes are suffering repeated serious head injuries. Remember UMaine’s Justin Strzelczyk? He played in the NFL for the Steelers. He killed himself at age 36. There’s a very dangerous trend here, and I hope the media investigates a possible connection to this tragedy. http://napavalleyregister.com/news/local/nfl-players-linked-to-cte/article_3d56c53a-bd8a-11e1-b483-0019bb2963f4.html
