David Ortiz shooting: Suspects were paid $8K for Big Papi hit

Quote:
Six men are now in custody in the Dominican Republic tied to the attempted murder of baseball star David Ortiz, authorities announced Wednesday, saying it was a coordinated attack for which the men were allegedly paid the equivalent of $8,000.

Jean Alain Rodríguez Sánchez, the Dominican Republic’s chief prosecutor, spoke at a press briefing, indicating that authorities believe they have the alleged shooter in custody but are still pursuing one more suspect. They still haven’t announced a motive for the attack on Ortiz or who paid for it.

Lots more to come on a loved and respected man.

I suppose I am old and measure a man differently.

I was going to delete the above post, but I have indicated to the mods exactly my feelings and intentions. I am posting this because the stories I am hearing are not yet validated and thus may only be rumors.

My thought process is how we ignore many who deserve our sympathy and kindness and "love and respect" someone for having money and hitting a baseball. THATS IT...ONLY THAT.

Not meant to disparage Ortiz at all. Just reading I felt compelled because of other headlines from that country to point out and ask how he deserves that kind of attention over weak and innocents.

Hoping this stays but if not, the mods know what I mean and my intent. Others who replied totally tried to make it something it is not.

Some of the theories regarding the shooting bring back memories of Marcellus Wallace (Pulp Fiction)
