Or maybe the FBI is just interested in any incident this close to a former President, or 41 has pulled some strings to help solve a high profile Houston homicide.

Houston is the 4th largest city with 2.3 million in the city limits, so it's expected for the city to have crime issues. Name one major city the size of Houston that has little or no crime, I'll wait. To be honest, yes this was a high-profile execution style murder, but to use this event to paint Houston as a warzone is crazy. Given the area in which this murder happened, it's unusual for murders to happen over there.

I know this neighborhood
Houston has lost a good doctor
He felt safe there

Or it might be that one of the doctor's cartel clients (not in a nefarious sense - drug lords need routine medical treatment, too) died under the doctor's care, and the client's loved ones sent a foreign hitter after him. A foreign hitter's not gonna care about a Houstonian identifying him. For him, it's a strictly in-and-out (of the country) operation, and the getting out part is probably pre-arranged.

As to this homicide, it is a damn shame and I always hate to hear of senseless deaths and my heart goes out to his family and friends. But all this speculation (every conceivable reason as to why and even down to civilians stating what the detectives should be doing - as if they don't know how to conduct an investigation) is just wild.

Furthermore, I realize the widow is hurt and grieving and it is a natural urge to want to strike back, but to try spin this into a political agenda ("use your vote and your voice to stem the tide of this growing public health epidemic. Write, email or tweet your Congressional Representative urging sensible gun laws. pro gun control conformation is out of line") when she is in the immediate aftermath of her husband's death strikes me as, well, I am at a loss for what word to use here to tell the truth. If her husband had been deliberately run down by a car would she be calling on voters to use their political voting powers to oust their representatives who happen to be pro automobile? Would she be advocating a movement for automobile control?

The first thought that came to my mind when reading her statement was . . we have sensible guns laws and I noticed someone else had the same thought in a following post. I wonder how long it will take for it to sink into people's brains that simply constricting or taking away a preferred weapon of choice (any preferred weapon) will not deter killers. It might momentarily slow some of them down, but it will not eliminate them. They (the killers) will persevere until they are taken out. We already have laws on top of laws, it is the enforcement of the laws we are having trouble with, not the laws themselves or the need for yet more laws.
