    "He was the nicest guy you could imagine. Always a pleasure to talk to, always a big smile."

    Yet, he shot an 8-year-old in the face.
    On Christmas Eve.
    Dressed as Santa.

    Faith in Humanity = -7

    Also: Bong Garcia.

    1. I can`t distance myself emotionally enough to find this in any way amusing.

    2. Don`t let one bad, crazy guy make you forget there were tons of non-crazy Santas who would of probably would of taken a bullet for an eight year old girl, not shot her with one.

    This f*cked up my good mood. WTF...
    What kind of person are you to shoot an 8 year-old in the face because of a divorce, huh? WTF did the kid do to deserve it? Matter of fact, what did anyone do to deserve it? This dude had his problems and he took it out on a bunch of innocent people. Doesn`t it just make you wonder why he got divorced?
    Sick people these days...

    This is a new level of messed up. To shoot people (especially an eight year old girl) dressed as Santa because you can`t cope with a divorce... I`m at a loss of words.

    In no world do I find this story "Greatest" anything.

    I hate AOL news. The actual content always opens in a second damn window with for no reason. It never just gives you the pics, you have to wait while some pointless, stupid flash thing loads. Also, the web pages smell really, really bad. Anyone ever notice that? Sniff the screen next time, smells like a moldy basement or something.

    <Duckboy>"It`s always the quiet ones that will get you...

    I better be careful, I`m a quiet one; except I have morals."

    apparently so did he originally, he was an usher at church and it is assumed people going to church have morals.

    If that 8-yr-old recovers, shes going to have terrible nightmares about Santas and christmas for a LONG time.

    i`m not usually one to get touchy, but theres nothing `great` about this, IAB.

    an obviously crazy individual shooting indiscriminately into a crowd of friends, a torched home, people jumping from windows for their life, eight bodies charred beyond identification, a ninth person missing and probably dead, a child shot in the face, a car bomb, a suicide..

    lets think about the story being posted before trying to give it a witty title..

    I could be wrong, but I think that the title of this post is merely pointing out how the media has a penchant for over simplifying and sensationalizing headlines to attract readers attention. Santa didn`t kill anyone. Some nutjob in Covina California did. Santa was busy delivering presents to little girls and boys on the night in question; not shooting them in the face.

    That 8 year old has a rough time ahead, but she possibly got the most amazing xmas gift ever. No not getting shot. LIVING after being shot in the head. Crazy.

    I`m also going to say nay to joking about this...I mean, I don`t see how this could be humorous in any way whatsoever, and even if there was something somewhere, it`s way to early to even think about jokes.

    The bodies haven`t even been buried yet. Have some dignity, IAB.

    He was making light of the fact the the title suggests Santa Clause is a homicidal maniac.
    Of course you know this, I`m being condescending.
    Lighten up, the title isnt offending anyone. Well, anyone with half their sense.
