    For anyone panicking from the title it's not the real Will Smith

    Senseless and tragic like most killings. I believe that Pierre Thomas was also in the car but wasn't injured. Leaves wife and 3 kids behind.

    Be careful out there guys. There was a thread about banging another's door on purpose recently. This is what can happen when you don't know who you're dealing with.

    Should have put in former Saints player. He's well known in the NFL community.

    ^ Smith's instagram pic from just 11 hrs ago makes it even more speechless.

    Jeez. How do people get so mad over something like that. I mean so mad he shoots the driver, but the wife too. Insanity. Crimes of passion I can understand. But what kind of crime is this. It's not even materialism. Just pure anger over an event. No history. Anything. I just don't get it.

    That's immediately what I thought of when I saw this news. There were posters in that thread talking about "never letting someone disrespect me in front of my family yadda yadda yadda..."

    Especially in front of your family, de-escalate a situation. No matter how you feel about it, we're swimming in guns and lots of people can't handle anger anymore, for whatever reason. Peace and RIP to this dude in the prime of his life.

    This should be in the NFL subforums so as to not confuse people.

    That's a big dude.

    That, coupled with the fact that Smith was in his car, make this seem like it was just a street thug being a street. Seems like him feeling in fear for his life is out of the question.
