But it seems to me a drug deal over weed "gone bad" isn't someone going down to the corner to pick up a dime bag and getting something with a bunch of sticks and stones; more like moving a large amount with a good chunk of cash. I'm a writer by trade. If I were writing a plausible plot line for this scenario, I'd go with dudes A try to do big pot deal with dudes B, dudes A try to pull the wool over the eyes of Dudes B, dudes A leave the scene thinking they got away with it, Dudes B realize they've been had and get totally pissed, Dudes B hunt down Dudes A, Dudes B grease Dudes A and all associated personnel (i.e., mom, toddler) in horrific fashion because they are evil and want to send a "message" to future Dudes A not to eff with them.

But the problem seems to be it's fairly difficult to live in Mattapan and be left alone: this shit gets tossed on your doorstep on a daily basis. It's up to the majority of good people who live in Mattapan to take a stand and put an end to it. The cops can help, and so can outsiders, but until the people of Mattapan say "no mas," it really doesn't matter what outside forces do. This shit happens in Mattapan because the perps know they can get away with it in Mattapan. The math here is fairly simple.

I know some very very bad people, and most of them would punish their own flesh and blood for killing a kid. Even among most criminals there are some lines you donâ€™t cross.
