A girl was killed less than a mile from my home Sunday morning. And now I'm reading comments from other Arkansans blaming the PARENTS for her death. They claim that because the girl was 14, and the boyfriend 20, and that they were out at 4am, that somehow they were culpable in her murder. BULLCRAP!
A 14 year old girl and her 20 year old boyfriend have far more right to be at a gas station at 4 am than a COLD BLOODED KILLER.
The girl may have been "dating" this young man, but nowhere do you read they were intimate. And, even at this late hour, they were being chaperoned by two cousins.
The guilt and blame should all be resting on the person or persons who fired the gun into the car because the boyfriend wouldn't "give" the girls to them. So, in addition to murder, they should also be charged with attempted kidnapping.
KILLERS HAVE NO RIGHT TO BE ANYWHERE ON THIS PLANET, REGARDLESS OF THE TIME OF DAY OR THE NEIGHBORHOOD THEY ARE IN! (With the one exception of six feet underneath it.)
