    One more genuis off the streets. Another big man hiding benind a gun. Put drugs on every street corner and you will stop all the drug related killings like this. Give away drugs and you will keep bums like this from breaking in to your house. Take the money out of drugs and there won't be a drug problem any more. Give it away and let all the drug users overdose and be done with them.
