      Get HIM some help? How about the victim? You sound like such a typical ignorant liberal.

        You must be a tRUMP supporter with the name “truthteller”. Anybody who has to tell others about themselves is usually just the opposite (i.e. tRUMP calls himself a “stable genius”. We all know that is not the truth).

    This story has some serious holes in it. “No fixed address” but drives a car?
    Then – WHY would the mysterious “victim” go with him to begin with?
    What was the object described – that was stored in the console? He strangled, bit, punched this victim for what? Fun?
    This ugly monster needs to be locked away for life or just put down and do society a favor.

      Look up his Facebook page to see who his girlfriend is, and then go to her page and watch her video. She was the victim.
