What are the odds that it's connected to the drug trade or gangs?

Or maybe he made fun of the Redskins.

TaxiDriver - what are the chances that it was connected to the local Afican-American subculture of violence?

Neither drugs not culture. How about stupidity, psychological problems, etc. When Italians kill is it due to the mafia influence? When southern "rednecks" kill is it do to a subculture of whiteness? let it go folks.

The internet has birthed millions of Gangstas who operate World Wide...And these are hard to kill....because they all got PhDs in English and have had no life until the internet popped up and the police started shutting down the Red Light Districts in urban communities....

@ HotelGuest...your ignorance and racist thoughts are expected in 2010!! Why should I think otherwise?!! All cultures and ethnicities have pockets of violence. No one is immune. So continue to hide behind your key strokes as an anonymous coward!
