      With the crime as it is in this country are any of us surprised or shocked at all? I hope this gets resolved soon, and without casualties.

      no argument warrants this type of action.

    I really wonder if the police will handle the drama at hand without having someone killed. Maybe they should let him go provided he releases the girlfriend and deal with him later, it's a small world.
