  • The problem with privilege kids is that they don’t know they are privileged… What makes this moron think his father was his problems? Now he is goint to rot in jail. He will appreciate it that he was privileged than most of his contemporaries…

    And forever he will live with the guilt of killing his father, a Senior Advocate. And i pray his mom, (because she’s a mom) does not help him come out. Let him rot in jail before he kills her or his siblings…

  • Parents shd learn how to be more observant of their kids. My big guess is that the boy is on drugs. God help us all.

  • Abomination! Satanic! Immorality! This is indeed a sacrilege to a christian home or/and christianity in general. Where is trace of our 1st moral lesson “Honour your father and your mother…….. And you parents do not get your children angry”. Holy Lord, forgive us our sins. Father and Mother are lawyer?, And are of a (dedicate) christian home?, and (supposed) members of RCCG?. A student of a christian based University? No! Not up-bringing. This is a demonic attack.
