funny video but that kid needs a logic lesson

Those who are dead set against the way reality is morally structured really shouldn’t be here. Obviously, they should be in a reality devoid of goodness and free will.

God does a bit of weeding now and again. Of course any viewer of NYPD blue would know Andy would of taken care of this guy long ago.

Note that meekly and passively allowing evil to grow and fester in the name of some emotional "feel good" might land you culpable as well. Word to the wise in future endeavors. Mothers are often guilty of this. But I digress.

I don't think that Steven was inherently evil. He was involved in an evil act and I think he was easily manipulated into it based on his childhood trauma. If you googled you would have seen that he was severely abused as a kid and likely suffered from PTSD and was a victim himself. The other guy was the mastermind behind this crime, and from the accounts of people who knew him, sounded like the other guy was pure evil. Most of what I found was talking about the accomplice, but did find one other personal antectode about Steven from someone who was a mother figure to him until the end (not his actual mother) and had pretty much a similar view of him as NMS does as a good friend to both her and her daughter.

Regardless, he was a good friend to NMS and hadn't committed any form of evil in over 30 years and I'm fairly certain that this was his only crime.

I found the story tragic for both Steven and the victims. Not sure about the other guy, since I see no evidence that he had any redeeming qualities and he seemed just pure evil since childhood.

To perhaps lighten the mood (or perhaps not, depending on your tastes!), I can't find a link to the original thread, but if any of you want to know the single most ****ed up, but also most darkly, wrongly hilarious comment that might have ever been made on the internet, google "I also choose this guy's dead wife." Or, if you can already tell that's not going to be funny to you...definitely don't.
My sense of humour is waaaaaaay warped. The joke was totally weak for me.

He was a negative force, manipulated by a psychopath,
Oh wow, God made an AO account. How's it going, God?
