andrew t girvan, can not use the excuse of a bad childhood, or the death of his father. no reasons why some people turn bad, can justify their deeds.sunshine boy, were you close to the family? I know sometimes extended family is not very close. I have extended family who are like brothers and sisters though.
What were Andrew Girvan and Chad Girvan like as younger boys? Why do you think they turned out as they did?
How were the boys affected by their dad's death?
What is Chad Girvan doing now that his brother is in jail accused of killing Miranda?
These are just curious questions my curious mind has. I hope you don't mind.
no one grows up a perfect life - ane if you do, you can still because a criminal,
if you did have a bad one, as so many have had, you can still become a responsible and kind and loving and non-criminal person in life.
It is entirely the person's own will and choice they make. some make mistakes early in life, and gain knowledge and understanding of those mistakes,
others learn nothing - and repeat offenders have a real problem with society and following the laws and code of ethics within human society.
They become callous, uncaring and greedy with no regard for others...
There is no excuse for either of those boys actions in life.
sometimes they fool people sometimes they don't.
they can get away with something once or many times, and how they utilize their punishment within the laws are on them.
They will not be able to use a bad childhood to get out of their peddling drugs of death...
It is clearly not going to matter how his life was, nor why he turned out as he did.
Sorry but I can't see the debate here on why this or that, other than to get 'reasons' or excuses' for juries to be sorry that the man ended up killing Miranda, after beating on several women over his adult life, involved in another drug overdose case just 5 months prior? besides all the numerous other criminal activities he did get convicted of, what did he do with his ability to change his life? nothing - because he liked the life he led. didn't want that to change. well, sorry, there is a direct result that normally happens when someone is continual in down spiral of criminal behavior by the time they are in their 30's there isn't much hope now for change. unless it's being locked up for life. let him change in their and work to help those newbies walking in to teach them the course not to take, and to turn to God. but he shoud stay put, it's all just a game to him....
he learned something there alright, he learned how he could get away with killing someone now, without any consequences.
