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.

God be with the families of those 2 that were shot and killed in cold blood.

I would assume this was a hate crime but only time will tell if the killer is charged with it.

Maybe they just heard Rev Wright give a speech or read something from Kos?

It’s not a hate crime if the preachers were Christian.

Very short on details, but I would guess that the preachers were black Pentacostalists.

I wonder if the phone call had anything to do with the shooting. Or was that just his way of saying that the conversation was over and he had to be about his business—probably the drug business?

Maybe the perp suspected the two of being undercover law enforcement?

Martyrdom in America shouldn’t be a surprise anymore. Martyrdom’s here in the good ole USA has increased pretty stedily since the start of the Clinton Captivity of the Nation, particularly after Columbine.

Doubtful these feral street thugs have the mental capacity to adhere to any kind of organized religion. Probably shot them dead for no other reason than to take their wallets and cell phones.

Apparently the murdered were ex-gang members.

I remember seeing a black preacher in San Fransisco with a sandwich board decrying SF’s godless homosexual lifestyle. I was shocked that the guy had such guts in enemy territory.
