Good point. What disturbs me a lot about this case is that these people didn't all shoot because of fear but because they wanted to shoot someone.
You're right. Rather than merely protecting what was theirs, they were almost looking for an excuse.
It could be that the two neighborhoods had been clashing for years, and the Algier's Pointe peeps acted as oppotunists to attack...or it could be that people, in general, will turn to chaos in the absence of law. It's an interesting story either way.

Dude, gang violence, as fucked up as this is, is a completely different story. Gang bangers kill other gang bangers.
Gang bangers kill anyone that comes on "their" turf. It's the same philosophy...
I was never in a gang, but I always knew which neighborhoods it wasn't safe to take a stroll through. Shit, some neighborhoods it wasn't even safe to drive through.
