Hammering home his family love.What a jerk.

Another irredeemable ingrate. Yesterday was a son beating & choking his mother to death with his bare hands. Dad here probably provided everything for the ungrateful for first 20 years, to be beaten with a hammer by his own son.

Let’s see if a real justice for his admitted crime will prevail and what appropriate fate will be brought upon him? Anticipating there will be an appropriate followup story here with his trial & sentencing.

Another day, another one. Yet the jgov chooses to ignore this cultural trait.

Without further details we may assume that this patricidal primate with a hammer had severe mental issues, like, "they know not what they do".

These things seem to happen after an argument. Makes me wonder if many out there think GBH or attempted murder is all part and parcel of having an argument

As I read the headline, I said ''unemployed'' to myself.

We read about these family people killing their parents almost daily here the only thing that changes recently is the names! Save the title for next week or maybe tomorrow because this will be a reprint and not an error!

Latest version of the same recurring news story. Unemployed man kills family member in gruesome outburst. When dysfunctional pops. Wonder how much of a common story this is in other countries. Can’t remember many cases in mine, but wonder what conditions make this such a regular occurrence. You almost skip over them because they are so common here. Any psychologist reader with an angle?

Same old story every week or so, psychotic, sociopathic people that never reached adulthood turn their frustration on anybody that has authority over them. Just let him rot in the shade for life and let the rest of the people forget he exist.
