"Nobody gets erased this way that didn't have it coming." WOW! What a cynical view of humanity. Words can not capture my disdain for your view of the world.

oh people. . . its not like she was trying to advertise out of disrespect... she was answering a question and commenting on another comment. some people like to complain just to complain and can only find happiness in others faults.

Most of these comments are just sad. A young man is found dead, most likely a victim of a violent crime and all you can do is post about your own petty agendas and differences.
