  1. I agree with the man’s decision… Depending on life circumstances. Only child (My reason for positive living) my decision would likely be the same. Justice in this country is just sad. Take a LIFE and get 3 Hots and a Cot for life, Maybe. Paradise for some people.

  2. The father wanted INSTANT justice…although I understand why he took matters into his own hands, I wish he would’ve at least given justice a chance to be served the legal way. Now he’s facing prison time after loosing his son. Sad situation for his family. May the young man R.I.P🙏🏽😞
