the KTVU article said he was involved in drugs and prostitutes.

dealing with ho's and drugs means dealing with gangs and pimps.

----gangs
HOs___ drugs

It's a cheap tactic though to correlate his wanting to get laid "illegally" with his murder. It might not be justification, but it's a weak (very weak) rationale for why this guy got murdered by Oakland gang members.

In any event, he broke the law and as a result, lost his life due to indirect association with criminals. Sad but such is the case.

Sad to say, his actions in life may have made him the perfect target, and certainly this article makes him seem no will be crying over his grave.

And if you are saying that I am venomous.... well -- I look at this as history. Rather like the way I would view the Bugsy Siegel hit in the 40's... he did this, he did that, he got whacked. It is what it is.

You seem to know quite a bit about this. Are we sure that high cost prostitutes associate with violent thugs only in Oakland, and nowhere else? We await the evidence.

I would never accuse you of being venomous.

But I can understand the venom from a former business partner. Hence "former".

this outrage that a man who was an ex con who used illegal drugs and hos was killed by one of the hos' gang member/pimp is absurd.

Wish more people in this thread would be outraged about the gang war happening in Oakland.
