I couldn't help but think of Geico's "15 minutes could save you..." commercial when I read this:
A Manhattan man was sprung from an upstate prison Thursday after serving 15 years — only to be shot 15 minutes later by a thug he snitched on, law-enforcement sources told The Post.
The 33-year-old man was released from Otisville State Prison at 9:45 a.m. with a train ticket for a trip to a halfway house in Manhattan.
But when he got outside, someone in a white Hyundai offered him a ride — an offer he quickly accepted.
After about two miles, the car pulled over and a second person hopped out of the trunk, pulled out a gun and fired two shots at the newly-freed man, police sources said.The victim is in stable condition and the suspects are in custody.
The gunman had a beef with the victim for snitching on him, sources said.These idiots waited 15 years to kill the snitch - that's 15 years to plan ahead, to carefully script their scheme, to masterfully craft a pernicious and deadly plan. They picked him up from prison in the Hyundai O'Doom, drove away from the scene, caught him completely unaware, shot him twice at point blank range and still couldn't put him down.
There is an obvious need for trunk assassin training; perhaps a community college course. I am sure the gubmint would pick up the cost.
