    We need more stories about the drunks who kill children every single day with their cars and get off with really light sentences.

    Why are those stories ignored?

    Why are all the other killings in society ignored by the press?

    Why does the press not cover the stories of the gang stalkers going around poisoning people? That is a NAZI crime.

    Drunk drivers are not considered malevolent – they did not intend to kill their victims. Most drunk drivers who do kill are stripped of their license and given jail time, but not as much as someone who intentionally killed his/her victim.

    Now, what is a gang stalker? Never heard of such.

    I pray for both families. I was more of an acquaintance with Ryan Brunn. I knew his brother from school. It was terrible to hear about his actions toward Jorelys Rivera. It was also terrible to hear that he took his life. Its a tragedy for both families and I pray that both familes gets through this.

    Now it is reported that the killer hanged himself in jail, and the killer's family might sue the jail for not having a suicide watch on him. WHAT ! Then I suggest the family of the murdered girl sue the killer's estate, so that, in the event the jail has to pay a couple hundred grand in settlement, that at least the real victim's family will receive some compensation for their heartbreaking loss.
