  1. TV has led to a lot of people having an inaccurate view of what love or a relationship entails. It is same with sex where some men watch some dirty movies and think that is the norm. When faced with reality they don’t get what they expect and lash out causing such unfortunate deaths. Cage that savage fof life

  2. Those are the boys who will later fraudulently join the Police and gun down Innocent citizens under instruction of an equally inept leadership. That’s how the cookie crumbles.

  3. Very sad. 16 is way too young to be in a relationship with a 23 year old, unless the boy makes his serious intentions known and is ready to wait for her to complete school. I agree, too much bad influence on young people through the media. Other parents should learn from such tragedies and be more watchful. Guard your children and don’t leave them roaming about on free range!
