Thumbs down Nice guy shot and killed...

A good Samaritan picking up people's tabs and giving out money at a Florida Waffle House was shot dead Sunday in a fight that seems to have been sparked by his generous gestures.

Craig Brewer, 41, was shot in the head and killed at about 3 a.m. during an "altercation" at a Gainesville Waffle House, according to a statement from the Alachua County Sheriff's Office.

The suspected shooter, Ezekiel Hicks, 25, was arrested at the scene.

Witnesses told deputies "that the victim was paying for meals and giving out money, and that devolved into a verbal and then physical altercation."

Brewer was picking up customers' tabs and handing out $20 bills, and a woman who was there with Hicks got angry because Brewer hadn't paid for her meal.

Hicks confronted Brewer and started arguing with him, and then left the restaurant to get a handgun, according to the Alachua County Sheriff's Office statement. Hicks went back inside, despite protests from a bystander, and started a physical fight with Brewer.

"As the fight continued, the suspect took the handgun from his pants and shot Brewer in the head."

Now we have to feed the AH for the rest of his life!!!! Always wondered why the criminal is treated better than the victim. Maybe DEM. lawyers? Pretty sick society.

Even good samaritans are targets of these twisted bastards. And like Chortdraw says, now we can feed him for life. (His girlfriend is on her own though.)

Cheaper to feed him for the rest of his life than to try him and pay of all his appeals for the next 30 years if he is to be executed.

But, as a Texas politician once said, I'm against capital punishment, but some people just need killing.

Thumbs down

Problem with prison sentences is nobody ever serves full term and he'll get out and be a repeat offender. I would rather feed him than have him on the street. About.75 cents for 3 servings of Ramon Noddles.
