  1. This is a dangerous “game” and should get at least 10 years jail. Why isn’t something done about this? Where’s the mayor, the president, the governor, whoever? Many victims were already hospitalized, are they waiting for someone to die from it?

  2. The elderly man’s children should be given the honor of pushing this low life off from a very high cliff. It is much cheaper than a jail, and would be a much bigger deterrent.
