Rewind and repeat the scenario. What a pathetic POS! It’s pretty easy to see why she wanted to break up with the childish psycho! She didn’t deserve to die because this POS has the emotional maturity of a 12 year old.

Seriously? If this is how he handles a situation, what was he gonna do if his job was going to fire him?

This is the most selfish and stupidest way to handle a break up.

 because she wanted to end their relationship.

So what, "You're not ending our relationship, I'm ending it. By taking your life!"

What is the logic here? You get dumped, you move on and find the next person. Here you just ruin and end 2 lives. What a waste.

I guess it's better he is off the streets now considering how unstable he is.
