    I’m glad to see the police filed the most serious charges possible. It sounded like attempted murder to me, too.

    The incident is proof of my belief that nothing good happens on the streets after midnight.

    Let’s pray for the recovery of the poor victim.

    And what about this Mariana Galvez- any charges laid on her yet? Doesn’t it say she requested the man be beaten? Such heart for a woman…
