Another Japanese family ended in another senseless act. May she “Rest In Peace” and “Condolences” offered to her husband and any other family.

What could anger someone so much with their elderly mother so early on a Sunday morning ?

Another disdain, pretentious, cretinous, and perhaps palatine scumbag.
