    What bothers me is that gangs shootings get so much publicity ,, yet same time farm murders (gruesome murders at that) seem to be old news. Let the gangs shoot each other into their m.er and lets focus on the actual murder victims out there.

    Collecting money from clients at 22:00 at night. Hardly suspicious at all.
