It is very upsetting To know that A person think they have the right to take someone's life. In this case two. We all need to be mindful of who we invite In our life. We need to watch the possibilities of what could happen before it happen. No judge could ever give Walls what he deserves for killing my friend. R.I.P Mommie @(>_<)@ {Real Talk}100%

This is very heart breaking for everyone involved. However I do agree with " Take Responsibility!" This is one of the reasons why the BIBLE COMMANDS " THOU SHALT NO COMMIT ADULTERY" READ- Exodus 20:14, Deuteronomy 5:18 and Matthew 5:27. Murder is not the answer!! But CANNOT PLAY ON PEOPLES EMOTIONS. If the marriage is not working DIVORCE!!! The bottom line is that people need to living in Gods principals.
