Some guys just don’t need to date at all, especially if they are unwilling to accept the fact that people move on and couples are free to break-up.
Today,in Southern California,a crazed young man did all that he could do to prove this point.
Joseph Mercado, 27,stormed his ex-girlfriend’s California home early Thursday and shot four people, killing two of them, before a sheriff’s deputy confronted and wounded the attacker.

He did all of this carnage just because he was a jilted lover?!?!…what an idiot!!!
The Los Angeles Times is reporting…The gunman, Joseph Mercado, 26, — the ex-boyfriend of a woman who was killed and the father of her child — entered the home on Devlin Avenue by a side entrance and shot the lock to get in, officials said. The first person he encountered was apparently the father of his ex-girlfriend, who was shot near the entrance.
The mother of the ex-girlfriend was shot in the kitchen.
The gunman then apparently went upstairs, where he shot his ex-girlfriend and her brother in their beds. They were pronounced dead at the scene.
The home was occupied by 10 people at the time. The mother and father were in critical condition at a hospital.
“People were diving out the windows,” said Bill McSweeney, chief of detectives for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
Authorities said they believed the man was distraught after breaking up with his girlfriend and that he shot the family members and then attempted to burn down the home by dousing the house inside and out with gasoline.(SOURCE)
