    This world has gone crazy. Shooting someone over a woman? REALLY!!??!! What happened to when people used their fists? I mean Im not condoning violence, but at least when people used their fists, people brushed it off and went about their business. Today, people are killing people over NONSENSE! We need stronger penalties for these actions. I didn’t see attempted murder as one of his charges, which if he shot him then that should be one of his charges. He shouldn’t get a slap on the wrist. Of course, nowadays, everyone is so big and bad and not scared of prison. It is really sad to me to see how far down the toilet society has gone.
