I agree with Jerry.. it's more about "payback". Will be hearing about some shooting or stabbing in the near future.

That is a sad possibility. Hopefully if there is a reprisal no innocent bystander will be involved.

To think we are talking about a very young man who already is not cooperating with the police after being injured makes this even more sad, but at least now they have identified him they can keep an eye on him to some extent. I'll joing those who hope we taxpayers aren't getting stuck with his medical expenses.
