Two of the suspects entered the vehicle and shot the victims, killing them immediately. The son and the niece cried out and the suspects threatened to kill them too.

A whole lot of bling, nothing unusual. The problem was that the wrong kind of people found out. I'm surprised the kids weren't killed too.

They have to pay.

Shoot your boss? On a plantation?

That's like Django, man!

Also, someone shot a woman. Not cool ...

Let's hear their stories, then try them.

Orphan-makers ...
Melvin Udall: Never, never, interrupt me, okay?

Not if there's a fire, not even if you hear the sound of a thud from my home and one week later there's a smell coming from there that can only be a decaying human body and you have to hold a hanky to your face because the stench is so thick that you think you're going to faint.

Even then, don't come knocking...Not for ANY reason.
