Guess Who I Bumped Into At The Supermarket?

This is from Wall Street Journal crime reporter Gary Fields. Gary points out an interesting phenomenon which you may have experienced. He researched the reasons for the increase in homicides and other violence on America's streets and comes up with an interesting theorem. There are so many people these days who go in an out of prison that prison life has essentially been exported to the streets. A simple faux pas like cutting in front of someone in the supermarket checkout line could get you killed. Unless you live in a glass bubble, the theory seems to fit what I've senn on the streets. Does the gangsta' life thrive in your suburb? Assemble your posse and check it out. Worth watching.
