Good morning! Today New Times
brings you a story making the rounds by merit of its own horrifying, senseless brutality. Last week, a 52-year-old man grabbed a gun and stood his ground right into the back of a door-to-door salesman's head.
The victim, 30-year-old Nick Rainey, worked for Blue Ribbon Steak and Seafood and had knocked on Roop's door, to no answer. OK, time to move on to the next house, right? NOPE.

When Rainey fell to the ground, Roop shot him again in the back of the head.
