  1. He had altercation with a man who could be his grandfather and to make matters worse alledgedly killed him. He loves no one not even himself. Hang him by his BALLS if he has any.

  2. Why the doctors always late.. For Example; someone die at about 8:30am and the doctor reach at 2pm to pronounce the body is really dead 🤔

    • The time of pronounced death does not mean the person died because of lack of medical assistance. After someone dies a medical doctor/examiner must pronounced the body dead before it can be moved to the morgue.

  3. That’s against the point, the age. So because they are 30 years apart and he could not be his grandfather, he can kill him? An individual has a child at 16 yrs, when that parent is 32 the child is 16. The child now has a child at 20 the parent is 52 the the 52 year old is not a grand parent. You dam fool.

  4. just hope this argument over what age a person can become a grandparent doesnt lead to violence… cool down the temperature
