Home Invading Ninja Intruder was Ex-CFO of Indian Casino-Shot by Ex-Boss
Weird story I've been following out of SF newspaper.

http://sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2006/03/04...

The black-clad intruder shot to death in the Healdsburg home of a retired Indian casino executive this week was the former chief financial officer of the same gaming tribe, authorities said Friday.

Police said David Edward Ferguson, 48, of San Diego used to work for the man who shot him dead Monday morning, 68-year-old Louis J. Phillips. Phillips was the chief executive officer of Viejas Enterprises in Alpine (San Diego County) and fired Ferguson as chief financial officer about six years ago, authorities said.

Ferguson, who was carrying no identification, jumped Phillips' wife, Sandra, when she went outside the couple's home at 7:30 a.m. Monday, police said. She ran into the house, pursued by her assailant -- who was wearing dark clothes and a ninja-style mask -- and her screams awakened her husband.

Louis Phillips grabbed his .357 Magnum revolver from his nightstand, sneaked up behind the intruder and fired three shots, killing him.

4. And I'm saying 3 357 rounds at close range is way over kill
If they didn't go through the guy and into his wife.

6. Nah
if you use hydroshocks or golden sabers, they break up and spread out. You want expansion in a defense bullet, not penetration.

8. Justified - Criminal had duct tape & weapons
"When police examined Ferguson's body, they found he was carrying a folding knife and a P-23 Gamo brand BB handgun, which resembles a Walther PPK, a favorite pistol among police officers.

He also was carrying a piece of yellow rope, duct tape, handcuffs and a blindfold. Six strips of duct tape -- each about 6 inches long -- were taped inside his jacket for ready use. He also had a couple of raw hot dogs in his pockets."

It looks like 2 possible murders were prevented.

...we had something similar just happen here in Georgia. One of the Lt.Governor's Campaign workers snapped, and then proceeded to set fire to several floors of the Lt. Governor's 2006 Campaign office. He says that he did it to cover up the fact that he had failed to complete a work assignment.

7. This would just be weird, IF there weren't Indian casino deals in the news
Jack Abramoff. Etc.

Plenty of weirdness out there, but there are also plenty of "coincidences" that aren't, really.

My guess is, one of them was doing something wrong with casino money or political money, way before this fatal altercation. Wonder if so, if we'll ever know.
