  1. I experienced a weirdness where a gym – that I wasn't a member of (they got my billing information from another gym) billed me for 6 months. I asked for a refund and the body-builders/staff said flat out "We never give refunds". I had to have BofA cut them off – because they kept billing me. Well, my take on this is – being on gym staff can be stressful and management will never be fair to anyone – either to the staff or to customers. It's a low margin business. And here you have a trainer – temperamental because he's on steroids – who thought the gym owed him 200 bucks. So he KILLs the manager and another staff member. And now gym management sanctimoniously eulogizes the dead staff. They could car less.

  2. I KNEW IT! Another fucking POS thug goes on yet another killing spree…..what is in your DNA????? Can't these people solve problems without violence? 13 percent of the population committing half the crimes….what a mistake to have EVER hired this black monster.

  3. Violence, rape and murder by black people against anyone who lives in close proximity to them is what there is. BLACK PEOPLE ARE DANGEROUS! They are NOT white people with black skin. They're not very smart. They greatly love violence. They're sadists, they lack empathy, they WILL kill you! Hyperviolent, hypercriminal.

  4. here are the facts.1). Abeku was publicly fired and dragged out of the equinox gym after 8 years of service2) All non corporate employee lost all their benefits in Jan 20173). abeku went through a nasty relationship issue in 2017Not defending this bum, but when you take everything away from a person, he or she might snap.I think Equinox management has to look in the mirror and ask do I have blood on my hands.
