Big man

He's got a gun, which makes him a big man. He'll spend a long time in prison and someone is dead. For what? Unless this is a case of self-defense, which I doubt, the only deserved penalty is death.

THUG

Thugs with guns always ends up with someone's momma crying. Gun laws wouldn't stop this kind of violence.

Wondering

When I worked EMS that particular road had somewhat of a drug problem, but that was in the 1990's, so I am kind of curious. I am waiting on a motive since I feel it might be drug related.
