Thank You For Smoking

By Wyatt Earp | September 3, 2008

Remember this story the next time you want to tell someone to “butt out.” I’ll remember to not say anything to Snigs.

LONDON – Former British heavyweight boxing champion James Oyebola was shot in the neck in a nightclub after asking a group of men to stop smoking, a court heard Tuesday. Prosecutor Jeremy Donne told the Old Bailey that the boxer died after the “senseless” shooting at the Chateau 6 club in Fulham, west London, in July 2007.

Jesus! What the hell is wrong with people?

Four men are on trial for his murder: Cyle Carth, 18; Dean Francis, 24; Rene McKoy, 20 and Kanyanta Mulenga, 23, all from south London. They deny murder and affray.

“Probably all unlawful killings are senseless but this unlawful killing was particularly senseless,” Donne told the court. “James Oyebola had become involved in a dispute over smoking inside the club.

“In the course of the resulting confrontation with these four defendants, one of them produced a gun and fired four bullets, two striking the hapless Mr Oyebola.” (H/T – )

I mention nonsense like this to the guys at the division all the time. Remember the good old days when you settled arguments with a fistfight? If you had a beef with someone, you settled it like men. Nowadays, if someone looks at someone else the wrong way, they put a cap in his ass. Personally, I think that’s the coward’s way out.

I realize that Oyebola would slaughter these idiots in a fistfight, but you get my point.

    It must have been a legal gun and one of those four was a policeman in performance of his duty – because I think handguns have been effectively outlawed in England – haven’t they?

    The good old days of ending arguments with fists are over.

    It is like the Old West without the Code of Honor.

    Right Earl, England is a perfectly safe gun free zone.

    I’m with you Wyatt; I don’t understand when we quit “settling things” one-on-one and had to hide behind guns. Especially guns from fast-driving cars. That ain’t manly, that’s just cowardice.

    Earl – Absolutely! Look how well that’s working for them!

    Admiral – That’s fine. Then let’s arm everyone and let them openly carry. I’ll bet a lot of crime will cease immediately.

    Sully – Yeah. Bawahahahahahahahaha!!!

    Doghouse – Exactly. And it’s disgusting.
