This is absolutely Heartbreaking the poor young man lost his life and others left injured. While he’s still got he’s it’s so wrong if he’s not from this country he should serve his time then send him back home either that or never ever let him be freed other than that he needs Hanging for what he’s done he’s not only taken away the young man’s life but he’s also taken the family’s life as well. Thinking of the poor family at this sad Time.

Rip to Jacob and hopefully the others make a full recovery, such a shame with all this evil that’s just happened people are more focused at coming on here to spread more hate and racism than pray for those still in hospital.

8 ppl attacked, 1 dead. 8 families feeling things they shouldn’t because of 1 man. 8 families who should be given free reign on this waste of air.
