    "The worker told Buser that two young men came up to the Asplundh workers demanding money. The workers said they had none, as they were working, and the two suspects began shooting"

    Great. Have to practice drawing while on a ladder now too?

    "Two tree trimmers were shot, one fatally, Monday afternoon during an argument..."

    "Gimme your money!"
    "Don't have any."
    "Bang!"

    That's an argument? Sounds more like an attempted armed robbery to me.

    I was thinking the argument may have gone more like:

    "what are you doing"
    "cutting trees"
    "not on my land"...blam

    Would you rob a guy who has a chain saw in his hands?

    Gun trumps chain saw every time.

    As long as the guy can't throw the chainsaw 1200fps, it seems a safe bet.

    We had a guy in town come outside on the tree trimmers. They were trimming on city alley property where his trees had grown over the power lines. His was the last transformer on the line. I told the guys to leave the limbs and put him down as the last house to get power in the next storm. The next ice storm his neighbors had power a week before he did. After fixing every line in town, they cut all the trees back to his property line before restoring his service. Never came in to complain.
