Wow... very sad. People seem to have no respect for life. This is going to haunt those witnesses for a very long time. God speed Mr. Downs, I hope you make a full recovery. As far as I'm concerned there shouldn't have been any bail for this arrest.

( So Very Tragic And Sad For This Young Man. Prayers To Him , Family , And All Those That Lives He Touched. This Young Woman's Apparent Rage She's Been Living With For Quite Sometime Now Has Ended Her Life , And Now Every Day She Must Live Within Her Dark Soul That Does Not Feel Nothing But Anger , Rage , Hate Of Another Human's Life.

So very tragic. Prayers for a full recovery Christopher. What's really scary to me is that I don't see an ounce of remorse or fear on that girl's face only contempt. What is our world coming to?

It is so telling the amount of callousness we see in society today with respect to life. It tells of the desensitization of our populace to crime, violence and the sanctity of life. It tells of how we view violence. Violence is just another way of handling problems. How did we come to a point where it is okay to just gun down someone for an argument, no matter how difficult the argument may be?

Slick most women don't revert to violence. This woman had a lot of rage inside. It's bad enough she emptied her gun in him and shot him when he was down. But then to beat him with the empty gun? Makes you wonder what caused that amount of hate and rage.

I am very curious to find out what caused such anger in this young woman. We need to hear the whole story before we judge her. Very sad when someone has to revert to such violence.

I don't think there is any excuse that could justify this. There are always other alternatives.

@ msamerica101 don't need to hear anything else before I judge her...how can you NOT judge someone who empties a handgun on an unarmed victim in a crowded neighborhood in the presence of kids??? She's crazy!!
