      Kendra,
      I’m sorry for your loss.
      It looks like your cousin made at least two bad decisions.
      #1, it’s still against the law to rob anyone or anything, including banks.
      #2, he condemned his soul to Hell for taking a cowards way out from the consequence of being caught after his first bad decision.
      I’m not talking big from behind my keyboard; I’m just stating the facts.
      I tell my own children all of the time, that if they ever come home with a bullet in their ass from attempting to rob and or injure someone, that I’ll finish the job by removing them from society myself.
      Again, I am very sorry for your loss, and I will pray for your family and your cousins soul.
