    This guy is a pig, I’ve known him from my days at hurricane high where a lot of the popular guys invited him into their group, they would always shower him with attention despite having a reputation for violence and other antisocial tendencies, since then many of this circle off so called friends have joined gangs and been busted for drugs, they have gotten nowhere with their lives, and i am confident this “ring leader ” will surely get the death penalty when all the hidden stuff comes to light.

    “Temper” and “Lost Boy” are probably pretty good ways to describe this guy…I’m stunned to read he went to HHS…there’s got to be a lot to his story.

    RIP to the victim and prayers for the poor guy’s family. What a needless loss.
