DIAMOND BAR (CBS) — Authorities have identified a man who was shot to death during an argument with his former roommate.

    The roommate needs to be thrown in jail. NO ONE has the right to kill someone unless there is the DANGER OF IMMEDIATE BODILY HARM. Modica was in the driveway and the roommate’s home was presumably locked so THERE WAS NO IMMEDIATE DANGER. This roommate needs tob e locked up for as long as murderer’s are locked up.

      Wow Karen, I hope that you are never seated on a jury, (there are no minimum IQ rqquirements).

        Actually I have been on a jury in MANHATTAN where you seem to be writing from and we declared him not guilty AFTER I FIGURED OUT WHAT REALLY HAPPENED. It was the case of the drug deal gone bad but the NY cabbie wanted us to think that the dealer robbed him. Yeah right – the dealer ran up to him in the middle of 6th Avenue during rush hour and took money out of his shirt pocket.

    Karen you don’t know the full story of what happened between the two roommates. Of course the roommate should be in jail if convicted.

    1. Karen says:

      I do know what happened. The evidence was stated in this article. I even specified the reasoning for my conclusion.

      I don’t have roomates by the way so YOU ARE NOT mine.

  3. Karen says:

    A man was MURDERED and you people defend a Murderer.

    This is something very wrong in our country.

    People condone violence.

    Wow, Karen. “The evidence was stated in this article.” It’s a good thing you don’t work for the DA.

    I’ve seen your comments in other articles before. YOU ARE AN IDIOT!
