Personal dispute in a parking lot in Suitland at 2AM! Can you say drug dispute? Also let us guess, all suspects and victims were afro-american?

So what if they were afro-american, they are people too. And there are quite a few nationalities that live in that area including some whites. People have disputes over many things besides drugs but they doesn't mean that pulling a gun is justified, another senseless shooting.....

THE PROBABILITY OF THEM BEING AFRO-AMERICANS ID FAIRLY HIGH GIVEN THE DESCRIPTION OF THE INCIDENT. PROBABLY SOME THUG WHO THOUGHT HE WAS FRANK LUCAS. NOT A WHOLE LOT OF VARIETY WHEN IT COMES TO 2AM QUARRELS. DEFINITELY A DRUG RELATED DISPUTE UNTIL PROVEN OTHERWISE.

No, it doesn't always mean drug related. a woman was killed and the man shot, it could've been over the woman, somebody might have been cheating.

Doesn't necesssary mean its black people either, more whites are in to drugs and violence than blacks, only thing about it you can't tell by reading the post. Now days its not about drugs its about some white guy pulled up in DC with a trunk full of hand guns to sell for crack or dope and then we got fifty more guns in the black community.

Definitely a drug related dispute? They were killed in the parking lot of a restaurant. I guess its too far-fetched to think they were there to get something to eat.

Nothing good ever happens after 2am.

I respect the right of free speech however, I think while exercising this right one should attempt to refrain from making assumptions.
As someone who is connected to the victim in this case, reading the negative comments has made the pain of our loss that much more infuriating.
According to some, she must have been the stereotypical african-american, cheating woman who may have been involved with some type drug situation. After all "nothing good ever happens after 2 am".
I would like to thank those who choose not to be ignorant, who choose to withhold judgement and who choose to be considerate of the feelings of those of us who mourn the loss of our loved-one.
She was a beautiful, educated, hard working, loving mother, new in town, who went with a co-worker for a night out as I'm sure we all do from time to time. She was a victim who was in the wrong place at the wrong time. Lord knows we weren't aware that we should have given her a map of areas where this type of senseless violence occurs so regularly that many seem desensitized and apparently judgmental toward the victim and not toward the monsters who are responsible for this.

As a coworker of the victim I'm appauled to read some of these comments. We are still trying to understand why someone so kind, smart and wonderful can be taken away so soon. She is a giver, a mother, a daughter and a genuine friend. So before you make dumb stupid comments, think, this could happen to you or someone you love. She was a person who is new in the area and was at the wrong place at the wrong time. For the person who is responsible, think of her child she left behind and do the right thing. Turn your self in and give her family and friends closure. Where the hell do people get off walking around with a gun. God knows who you are, and so do you. YES I'M VERY ANGRY!!!!!!
