It is time, fair readers, to ask yourself how you really feel about this. Or better yet, ask yourselves how your candidate feels about it.

We at NOMB still maintain a strict "no murder is a good murder" policy, although stories like this force us to reevaluate our stance sometimes.

The 18-year-old implicated in a dozen Uptown armed robberies and linked to the Christmas night shooting of six people in Central City was gunned down midday Tuesday. Shortly after 12:15 p.m., gunshots rang out near the corner of Jackson Avenue and Willow Street in Central City, hitting Eldrin George several times in the leg and chest, police sources said. Eldrin George George ran half a block before collapsing, sources said. Paramedics took him to a hospital where he died less than two hours later

It's stories like this though that remind us why we have that stance:
Nearly five months after robbers opened fire on seven people in an eastern New Orleans home, fatally wounding three, a fourth victim has died, the Orleans Parish coroner's office said.
Kiengkay Chomsy, 42, of eastern New Orleans, died Tuesday at 4:30 p.m. at Canon Hospice, a day after he was transferred from University Hospital, chief coroner's investigator John Gagliano said. Chomsy died of complications from gunshot wounds to his head.
