    2 Street Preachers Shot to Death in Florida

    BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. —
    Two men ministering on the streets of Boynton Beach were allegedly gunned down by an 18-year-old man. Police say 24-year-old Tite Sufra and 23-year-old Stephen Ocean were preaching to Jeriah Woody for about 15 minutes, until he got a phone call.
    Woody left, but then allegedly started walking toward the two. When Sufra approached, Woody allegedly shot him in the head. Ocean ran, and police say Woody shot him in the back, then walked up and shot him again — this time in the head at point-blank range.
    Police said a witness identified Woody, who is known by the street name "Plug." He surrendered Wednesday on two counts of first-degree murder charges.
    It could not be determined if Woody had an attorney.

    When Pat Tillman was murdered, a Lt. Col. told his parents that if they were Christian instead of atheist, they wouldn't feel so bad because now Pat gets to be with "God".

    Some Christians are so tactful.
    perhaps that notion will soothe the pain of the families and friends of these preachers. :eusa_eh:

    I wonder what religion these street preachers were? I wonder if "Plug" was of any religion? Maybe they were all the same religion? :confused:

    I think you're referring to this?

    In comments to ESPN, Kauzlarich said: "These people have a hard time letting it go. It may be because of their religious beliefs" and "When you die, I mean, there is supposedly a better life, right? Well, if you are an atheist and you don’t believe in anything, if you die, what is there to go to? Nothing. You are worm dirt. So for their son to die for nothing and now he is no more... I do not know how an atheist thinks, I can only imagine that would be pretty tough."[40] Lt. Col. Ralph Kauzlarich conducted the second investigation into Tillman's death which lasted a week, from May 8, 2004, to May 15, 2004.

    I couldn't believe a Christian would say that to grieving parents and I doubt that he did. It sounds like comments AFTER an interview. I can only hope he didn't think he would be quoted when he said it to ESPN reporters, who were heartless to put it in print, even if it's true. Kauzlarich got punished for saying it to a reporter, but the motivation of the reporter to print that...I would lay bets on.
