    Shooting war erupts in quiet Washington State community

    http://www.theolympian.com/2010/10/0...-shootout.html

    Aftermath: 1 dead, 2 hurt, 5 in jail, 3 on run
    Six people – dressed in camouflage and carrying shotguns, handguns and knives...Inside the home, at least three men – also armed with guns – were ready for them.


    ...the two groups fired 50 to 100 rounds at each other...


    “...everybody was armed on both sides...
    On Friday, residents of the wooded Key Peninsula community said they were nervous. Some said they were taking the unprecedented step of locking their doors – fearful that some of the attackers might still be roaming the area.


    “I’m surprised that something so violent could happen here,”


    Investigators said they suspect the attackers...might have gone to the...home after an earlier OxyContin deal went bad. Detectives also found a marijuana-grow operation...


    The gun battle started shortly before 8:30 p.m. Thursday and continued “into the road, into the driveway” and down the road, Troyer said. Neighbors called 911 to report hearing what sounded like machine gun fire.

    If we could just take drugs out of the equation. Hope people who are on the fence about guns understand this.

    Hard to tell for sure but it sounds like CVCNHI (criminal vs criminal no humans involved).

    Did I miss the part in the report where it said they were black? Or is this an assumption of race?

    Over 78% of the county where this occured is white. 6% black. 2% american indian. 14% hispanic/other.

    Rough numbers at a glance.

    Just saying.

    Its such a different culture in Washington, literally nobody locks their doors. So weird for me when I was up there.

    Call me out of the loop, but what exactly does Oxycontin do? Is it like a pharmaceutical heroin or something? I just find it kind of bizarre that 9 people would have an extended gunfight over a scrip drug and pot. Maybe I've lived in the country too long, I don't know.

    It's pretty strong stuff. IIRC...I believe it's an opiate or synthesized from opium. Betcha wikipedia has a good definition. Seems to be the thing I hear about on the news more and more.

    I think the assumption is yours. "Homeboy" is any young criminal thug (legit or wannabe) who fancies the urban style of attire.

    That is some strong stuff. A few years ago when I had a pinched nerve in my back an looking for a suitable specialist and arrangements for treatment I was put on it (oxycodone-generic name) and Methadone in combination, for the pain. In a period of three weeks, I lost 25-30lbs out of 155lbs. As soon as I got treatment, I stopped the medication and had withdrawls for a couple days, which I expected but was willing to put up with to get off the drugs quickly.

    Oxycontin is called (Hillbilly Heroin) they break it down and either inject it or crush it and injest it,that removes the time release and they get the full effects right now
