Last week, I was so deeply engrossed doing something on the laptop that I didn't hear the fight and murder happening in front of my house.
Honey Lips and his father witnessed the crime with another dozen of on-lookers.
A homeless vagrant allegedly teased a girl (harmless tease and he was under the influence) and minutes later, the girl's father came and took a swing at his head with a cutlass. The homeless mister fell to the ground while the father ran away. Some of the witnesses took him to the hospital. His brain suffered a massive trauma and he passed away not long after.
The police has since been badgering my maid who didn't see anything but a guy running away. Honey Lips and his father tried to help with the investigation. And yesterday, the murderer father was caught after one of the other witnesses gave away his name.
All I want to ask the father is, "Why would you kill someone - someone you know is not in his senses - just because he was harmlessly teasing your daughter? I know you have a right to be protective of your daughter but you do NOT have the right to take away a life."
What's next? When does the stupidiy stop?
