Gas prices are up this summer. Too expensive to drive.

Wonder why the Clinton's had the doctor taken out?

This sounds like a side-plot in a couple of episodes of Bosch on Netflix. I wonder if that's where the murderer got the idea. That's a great series BTW.

Sounds like a hit; the doc was specifically targeted.

Because Senior has the Secret Service always watching him.

Left behind the doctor’s very expensive bicycle.
Wore a hat and sunglasses.
Disappeared into a high end residential neighborhood on his bike.

No mention of bike rage or anything.

Hard to have "Safe Storage" on a bicycle when the hospital you work at is 30.06 + 30.07 posted so you know he was unarmed on the bike.

Whereas in a car, Motorist Protection Act he could have had a gun ...

So a hitman wouldn't shoot him on his way to the grocery store in his car where he might be armed ...

He'd shoot him on a bike on the way to the GunFreeZone where he worked.

Rehash of the same story, but with added sketch of shooter and vague photo of two bicycles at an intersection.

If not bike rage, if not a robbery, seems like a targeted hit. So far they have really nothing. More evidence of a hit. Lot of conspiracy on line that it was the Clinton's sending a message to the Bush's. That seems a stretch. With the wife's immediate anti gun message, I'd look there first.

My gut tells me a targeted hit too. Hard to believe some random meth-head or homeless person riding a bicycle would have those kinds of marksmanship skills with a handgun at that distance.
Please know and follow the rules of firearms safety.

Bingo! :anamatedbanana The Clintons did it because he is who has been keeping Bush alive. :lol:
