    Kill a man for cheese? Really? When you could have just called the police?

    This is a sad and unfortunate incident indeed. There are several methods, apart from the one that was used to bring closure to the matter. Why should one take things in his or her own hands when a report could have easily been made to the police. I trust that justice would be served.
