She Was Doing a Good Deed, Now She's Just Another Shooting Victim

A University of North Texas student has died after being shot in the head on a highway following a New Year's Eve celebration.  She had volunteered to be the designated driver for a group of friends so that everyone would arrive home safely. 

"According to police, the shooting occurred shortly after 2 a.m. on New Year's Day.  Police arrived at what they assumed was a run-of-the-mill New Year's drunk driving incident, but quickly learned that the driver of a car that slammed into an electrical pole near Texas Woman's University had been shot in the head.

According to witnesses, the driver--a 20-year-old woman...--and her three passengers met with a bit of New Year's terror when an SUV carrying five or six men pulled alongside them.  The occupants of the vehicles apparently argued, leading the men to do what gun-toting road ragers do best--one of them pulled out a gun and opened fire on the woman's sedan.

After taking a bullet to the head, the driver lost control and crashed into another vehicle before slamming into the pole... The shooter, of course, fled the scene along with his friends."

eye'm thynkin':  Remember when arguments used to end with yelling?  Remember when the worst that could happen was fisticuffs? Remember when the NRA was a sportsmen's organization instead of an adjunct advertising department of Smith and Wesson?
