Cripes, no wonder it takes 5 days to get a letter across town.
No, I don’t think so. I wouldn’t be surprised if this had something to do with the Black Muslim group that is active in that area. Don’t forget that Malcom X was killed by one of his own, and the group has been famous for dealing harshly with members who either try to get out or simply aren’t on the side of the head honcho of the moment.
The first man killed was wearing a suit and tie that looked a lot like what Black Muslims wear.
So I’d say - cherchez l’islam. Granted, Black Muslims are sort of an offshoot and are tolerated by “real” Muslims only because they are sort of reinforcements against the West and Christians and Jews. But they are very hard on members and expect total devotion and will punish if there’s any deviation.
On the other hand, it could be just your average mad bomber. But I think there’s probably a common thread between the victims that will lead to the killer.
