  1. He was trying to be security conscious, you know,I would blame the deceased he would have answered the security man jejely. He just died a wasteful death


    1. Whether he answered jejely or not, There shouldn't have been any reason to stab the security man. He probably has ulterior motives


  2. People are just too quick to take the life of their fellow human being. RIP to the dead
