    people don't do things for no reason, doing that to your mother is wrong, but what did she do to him? Childhood…it can really mess with your adult mind.

      He is 22, not a child. Jumping in defense so quickly seems rash since he is still on the run, and the fact of how he did it makes it hard to believe he is innocent in the least.

      You are the same stupid person (Oak Park mentality) who would say such things as: "He must of needed it more than I did" after being robbed!

        well i got a maywood mentality and he needs to get stabbed and shoved in a trunk and see how he likes it. if someone attacks their parents then they are not right in the head. kid was 240lbs so his mom didn't deny him food so whats his excuse. save taxpayers the $$ to keep him in jail and fry the piggie!!!!! i bet he'll have fun in the county jail; he's gonna be made to wear a bra and blow other inmates. have a nice life loser!!!!

      Murder is wrong! Attempted murder is also wrong! He could just as easily made the decision to move across country. He's a sociopath!

    to the person who said "people don't do things for no reason" You want to spend a couple hours with him all alone, go give him your sympathy.

    yes, its very wrong for him to do this, by all means, he needs help, psychological help, lots of it, but at least his mother is still alive!
