How sad. And it sounds like their will be more bodies soon. This story demonstrates the futility of policing in a ghetto governed by the "laws" of the public drug market. If public drug markets were dismantled due to an end to prohibition, I think most people in this neighborhood would come to understand the following equation: stop snitching + vengance = more dead black people.
