How many people take pride in their work like that nowadays?

Why in the world do people take guns to work unless they intend to use them? That is pure stupidity.

It would have been so easy to go over the place that was stepped in. Besides that, when fresh concrete is poured the area is roped off so people know not to step on it.

I call this guy a "hot-head," not in slef control of himself, and placing blame on the wrong person, and more so felt it necessary to shoot him. HOly cow!

GEES! Wonders never cease in this world. Sure never used to be this way.

Eye for an Eye - sure would cut down on some of the crime.

"turned himself in," well, big deal the police would have caught him anyway.

Things like this are stupid and they tick me off each and every time I see them.

Oh well - it's nothing I can control or do a thing about. I can only say I hope that guy goes to jail or prison. Assault with a deadly weapon doesn't usually go over too big when I judge gets hold of the case.
