America in Decline

When we speak of  America's decline, we primarily speak of the economic decline.

But the moral and spiritual decline is rotting America's soul perhaps at an even more rapid rate.

This is a terrible tale from America, a story that illustrates how certain American youth have no value for human life. 

Their callousness and self-centered behaviour knows no bounds.

Did anyone read about this story before today? This is the first I have heard of it.

If what is alleged about these young men is proven in court, these faces will be recognized as contemporary portraits of evil:

"After placing an order with China King, Smith said, Friend and Haugabook, each armed with a handgun, confronted the 60-year-old man at 13th and Queen streets. Smith said Friend shot Liu in the foot and then Haugabook shot him in the face, killing him. The two returned to a nearby house and shared the food with the others."

"After eating, the group, "came back to view the body and go through the car," said Smith."

"Police say all that was missing when Liu's body was found later that night was the order of chicken wings and shrimp fried rice and $48 in cash."

A hardworking man, doing his job was murdered for chicken wings, shrimp fried rice and $48-. 

What more is there to say?
