Holy crap, it drives me crazy that they keep saying, "he was killed over a pair of sneakers."
NO! He was killed because he assaulted someone who had the means to defend himself against a deadly threat.
It doesn't matter *at all* if it was over sneakers, or an offensive T-shirt, or what someone said to someone's mother once.
The core of this is that this "good kid" chose to use a gun to assault someone, and it backfired.
Shame on every cop or news organization who essentially apologizes for scumbags like that by making the death about *sneakers*.
Puts new meaning into "You snooze, you lose."Police say 16-year-old Jawaad Jabbar showed up too late to a limited sales event at Hhgregg shoe store at a mall in Dayton, Ohio where the popular $200 sneakers were being sold.
