Title: Give these punks what they deserve - or more!
This victim was a dear friend and many are feeling the loss. These punks should be locked away for life, if not given the death penalty. If life means so little to them, then their lives should mean nothing to us. Throw away the key, or flip the switch! But don't let them get away with murder. Literally.

Title: Tragedy with very little news coverage
We see so many headlines regarding the different tragedies all over the United States, however this one gets no coverage. I can only hope that our Justice system deals with the individuals who are responsible for taking the life of an elderly man. The story states this was a robbery, it was a robbery and the assault on an elderly man who lost his life from the attack.
