Last week 18-year-old Abraham Lopez stabbed his ex-girlfriend, 17-year-old Cindi Santana, to death in the lunchroom of South East High School in Los Angeles.
My guess is this macho douchebag lived by the ‘If I can’t have you no one can’ credo considering that 3 days prior to Cindi’s murder Lopez was released from jail after being arrested for making threats against her. I’ll get into more of that in a second.
I’m not sure how this came about but police thought that Lopez may have planted a bomb in the Santana’s family car so the parking garage at the hospital had to be evacuated.
The high schools in our country have declined into nothing but coed prisons where anybody can be shanked on any given day and do you know whose fault it is? The parents of these thugs who refuse to do anything about their violent kids. Lopez got out of jail after somebody paid the $50,000 bail. Who do you think probably paid that bail to get their stabby little snowflake out of jail?
It’s not going to get better either. With each generation we become a more trashy and violent society and eventually the bad will outnumber the good and violent crime will spread to every corner of our country.
H/T to Bonnie.
UPDATE 5/13/2012: Lopez has pleaded not guilty. Prosecutors will be seeking 1st degree murder charges.
