    Another animal….the poor old lady was his grandmother. These people do not care kill, kill, kill. Violence is everywhere and our officials are not doing their job. Another case for the death penalty.

    No civility. Only anger and murder. Tougher sentences, place them in general population and let them exist with the “other” animals.
