The poor soul! He escaped the snake-pit that is Florida only to be murdered by someone in Georgia. That makes the deed that much more detestable. There is the expectation of a higher standard of conduct manifested by Georgians for the simple reason that Georgians do know/are taught right from wrong.

Shame on whoever did this deed! If you steal a man's money you can pay him back and beg his forgiveness. You can't undo murder. Any murder-minded individuals in Georgia had best move to South Florida where hideous killings happen every day and people there just shrug. As for us, we're not going to put up with it!

If I had to die under a bridge I don't think it would be any of the Bridges leading into or out of Georgia. I guess I'm lucky I don't hang out under the bridge again my life has been spared. When I was a kid I was afraid to go over bridges in a car I just felt uneasy. I once crossed a bridge into and out of New Orleans that was enough for me to never go back there.

You all just wish him good luck in his next life. He will be in a better home I hope. Only one that knows now is David and his judge.
