5 times. FIVE. Clearly the intent was not just to threaten, scare or intimidate. Clearly the intent was not to injure. Clearly, the intent was loss of life. I google mapped the address. The "apartment complex" appears to be adjacent to a building that offers a number of services, including clothing and prayer. I mean... when even religion fails these perps, you have to wonder... You can blame the "system", but that system invariable includes the religious structure inherent within this person's socio-economic strata.

Or maybe they were just another 'bad apple'.

If so, we have a problem with the agricultural system as well.
