There are relatively few absolutely straight-up stranger to stranger homicides. Homicide is a phenomenon of social networks. Most people’s relationships are primarily with someone of their own race or ethnicity. We seem to be at war amongst ourselves to the intent that our love for one another is a thing of the past. We brothers hang in groups on the street corner looking like gang bangers and then the real gangsters come along and heat the corner up.
However when you “posse up” like that it gives the impression that you are the rival gang wearing the wrong colors. And the media calls it a drive-by shooting. You are aware of the company you keep as well as I do. Birds of A feather flock together.
“Thy sons have fainted; they lie at the head of all the streets, as a wild bull in a net: they are full of the fury of the LORD, the rebuke of thy God.” (Isaiah 51:20)
The actual problem is that our children have forgotten God and choose not to live by his laws and standards.
