An attribute he shares with over half of the USA.

From the article:
“The 50-year-old Camacho was shot as he and a friend sat in a Ford Mustang parked outside a bar Tuesday night. Police spokesman Alex Diaz has said officers found nine small bags of cocaine in the friend's pocket, and a 10th bag open inside the car.”

Who knows the true story, but wherever there are drugs there are problems.

He was found with 10 bags of coke in the car. I feel for his family, but it sounds like he brought this on himself. I can hardly wait for the eulogies about what a positive image he was, and how he fell. I’ll pass.

Yes thanks I saw that although the comment tends to sway the reader(me) that the cause of the vegetative state was do to drug use, not dealing.

I don’t spit into the wind, I don’t tug on Superman’s cape or mess with bad bad Leroy Brown.........

I also don’t set in parked cars outside bars after dark snorting coke.

Boxers take thousands of head shots in the ring. When I hear that one is brain dead, I think it’s the natural progression of things.

Shame. They initially said he was expected to recover.

Cocaine in the car, sitting in front of a bar.

Alcohol is a dangerous gateway drug.

I was thinking that,too. The skull was not meant to take such a beating and the brain itself can only take so much jarring.
