How dare you even make such an idiotic statement? You have disrespected the families of those involved. You must feel high and mighty on your little computer commenting on stories that do not involve you, but I assure you that you are the scum on my shoe. If you make one more comment about this then I will be sure to trace your IP address and press charges for defamation of character.
