  1. This is Justin Girling’s father. People, I once had a relationship with my son Justin’s mother Jan, and I knew what her first husband and other children were like. I wrote this two paragraph note explaining what they, and also what Justin is like, and why he and his brother Kurt hated each other, and what caused Justin to shoot and kill his brother Kurt. – Please click to enlarge, and read why Justin Killed his brother, and why he called it self defense. – These are things the News people don’t know about Justin and Kurt, and what their articles won’t tell you. (But I knew all of them personally.)
