    These kind of incidents are common now a days, police should have taken some strong steps to stop these crimes.

      What could the po po do to stop domestic crimes? These crimes of passion normally take place inside the homes of the combatants, and if neither one of the combatants call 911, then the po po wouldn’t have any knowledge of the crime.

      What a moronic comment. What the hell does race have to do with a murder suicide. Only an angry black would make such an observation.

        Only a WOMAN would make a comment like that! As a man, I don’t blame her. But, I’ll say this. Woman, please get it right! You ladies incessantly choose the wrong guy. Then mister right is there to pick-up the pieces or left alone.

        Every article pertaining to or if it seems that they are black you have a whole lot to say…Now because we know they are white its a problem…f you and they were white trash…white men can’t handle their emotions and get some good pussie and can’t handle it….now since they might be white you want to ask what race has to do with it, but if it was a white person saying racists sht you don’t comment about that because you don’t want to be seen as taking up for blacks or you basically feel the same way, but as soon as someone says something about Crazy azz white people, oohhh oohhh you are a racist…Jerome get the fck out of here…
