  1. Very sad

  3. RIP young one. Hope that his family is coping in this difficult time.

    • It is a great relief that this case does not sound like a suicide. We are doing the young a very grave injustice. We are bringing them into this world without any responsibility on our part, the parents and society, to nurture them, and to get them to be the very best that they can be.

      • OK, as usual, our sperm donours are opposed to the idea of raising better offspring. It is clear, what their main reason for their presence on earth is. Look at the results. Pregnant women and fatherless children. The women now have to raise those children on low wage temporary jobs like STEP. So we create another round of dumb children just good enough to be maids at hotels. and to cut grass by the roadside.

        • nothing wrong of being a maid, some one has to do it and do you know now a days you need a high school diploma and experience to be a maid.
          Yes i agree they need to be Educated,
