Man blasted in back with shotgun over ciggie
Smoking is bad for your health. We hear that all the time, but in this case it was almost instant death as opposed to the dude dying of lung cancer.
Anthony Bailey aged 36 was shot in the back with a shotgun. You'd think maybe robbery gone bad or the guy hurt someone's kids or daughter or wife. Nope. A man walked up and asked Bailey for a ciggie. Bailey's boss said he hear Bailey tell the guy to like beat it and get a job. Words were had and the guy left. Next thing the boss sees the guy come back with a shotgun. This dude shot Bailey in the back because of the words. Or was it because he needed a smoke? Either way people are nuts.
"You got to be real sensitive with people if someone asks you for a cigarette. Give them the cigarette" said Mr. King, Bailey's boss. No, no I'm not giving them a cigarette because if I did I'd have a pack gone within an hour. I just say "Sorry this was my last one". Shouldn't be smoking anyway. Thankfully Bailey so far is doing about as well as you can with a shotgun wound.

This story reminds me of one time when a couple were walking past my old house after a night out at the pub. Four youths came up and asked them for a cigarette and the man said he didnt have any so they jumped him and kicked him unconscious. I'll never forget the screams of that man's girlfriend as she tried to stop them and then cradled him covered in blood after the four ****s ran off.
Crimes like that and the one in this story are just senseless.....all over a fag(as we call cigs here)
Some people are just lunatics!Rest in Peace Baby P xx
