Not a real shoot out.

More like a shoot up.

Kenny Clutch, the’aspring rapper’ (and known pimp) mouthed off to the wrong people.

Of course it wouldn’t be complete without them taking down some innocents as well.

He was turning his life around, pursuing a community college Associate Arts Degree in Grocery Bagging.

I just love the “aspring rapper” term. Just another PC name for gang banger.

I heard Jerry Doyle talk show, a resident of Vegas, say the taxi was running on a alternate clean burning fuel source ...propane.

Might explain the instant fire bomb.

No, seriously, at this mortality rate the country will eventually run out of rappers and then what, we'll have to outsource rapping to India?

Dear Rappers: Your culture is rotten to the core. It has nothing to do with race, it has to do with the values you make glamorous, and with the culture of the people who listen to you. Seriously, if you have the brains to criminally exploit the people who listen to you, to make impressive piles of money contributing absolutely nothing of value to the Nation, it is a sad condemnation that in the end you hang out with the same violence-prone idiots you did when you just were starting out. No wonder so many of you die early and stupidly. Simply: take your money, move somewhere nice, and STOP HANINGING OUT WITH PEOPLE LIKE...well, LIKE YOU!

One of the people commenting at the article link thinks they will find the Rover and the criminals will be caught and punished. How incredibly naive. Wonder if they thought about dragging Lake Meade. That Rover is long gone.

Thanks for that info. I had heard the “experts” say many times that vehicles only explode in the movies. This explains why this one exploded.
