    The suspect, pictured below, is said to have become angry because the attendant told him he'd have to put his cigarette out...

    How are people like that able to just be out and about?


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    Except the judicial process in Texas is just a dog and pony show.

    How do you know the guy got shot over a cigarette dispute? not in your article. not saying you are wrong, but just hard to belief. but then again, i am never surprised any more.......

    look, I'm not looking to debate judiciary process, I'm just saying that someone like this who's willing to wrecklessly take the life of another person for absolutely no reason deserves to die. they're a waste of life.

    Not try to debate either. Sorry if it came off that way. Life in prison without perole would fit as well.

    From one of the comments on kcci.com:


    So far I know its about Jeff asked him to put out his cig when he was in the restroom. He had just texted his wife and was telling her about this man . Then he didnt text his wife back and she got worried less than 1/2 later the police showed up at her door. I bet the person that shot him was on drugs, or was hauling drugs or had a warrent out for his arrest. My husband is so upset today

    Yeah, I am sure the shooter was a fine, upstanding citizen. One life very much wasted, another taken off the streets, possibly saving future lives.

    Site rules are site rules. You can discus it in the cave if you want to, but not on the main board. End of Discussion.
