      He doesn’t sound ok but I would hope that he pulls through. People please calm down take a deep breath walk away think twice before thinking of harming your brother or sister. I blame the court somewhat. Just yesterday two men were given absolutel discharges for fighting. In this day and age there should be no absolute discharges for acts of violence.

        I had posted when it was first online around 11:08 am.
        Now with this update it does not seem he is ok.

  2. This is crazy but hopefully cooler heads prevail and those that need to be brought to justice will be dealt with, and we don’t know all the details so we can not say who is really at fault, but thankfully there is no loss of life.

      Especially when they are “psychotic” and under the influence of drugs or booze – as well!!

    • MAKE MY DAY says:

      Especially in the USA!! I have never seen so many “red-necks” before until I actually lived in the country!!

      Today’s America sits upon a very poor foundation in general – and there are going to be serious problems there – in the not too distant future!!
