    The headline reads, "Motive still unclear in shooting that left Stockton mad dead". Folks, we live in dangerous and uncertain times where a certain part of our society needs no "Motive" to shoot, hurt, kill, stab, or rob. They will literally victimize someone simply because they want what that person has, or doesn't like the fact that that person is wearing the wrong color. I don't know a thing about Mr. Mora. For all I know, he could have been a gang member or drug dealer, and this was a hit. I don't know that, so I assume he was an innocent person simply driving down the street minding his own business. This is something that could literally happen to any one of us, because this group of scum bag cowards have no value of human life and will kill or maim just because. Situational awareness is key. Always be aware of your surroundings. If you can legally carry a firearm, I would strongly encourage you to.
