    So sorry this young man is dead. Condolences to the family. With that said, what the hell is wrong with people? Never, never pick up someone your don’t know and give them ride. I am sure a lot of people would just be grateful for the ride but there are always the ones who will do just what happened. There is no way of knowing who will and who won’t.
