    woah, might want to stay away from a drug lords loved ones...
    The television crews left and about 10 reporters remained in the room. That's when Price took his turn doing the talking.
    What followed was a five-minute, 34-second expletive-filled tirade. The final tally was 77 uses of the "F" word or a variant and 11 uses of a vulgar term for feces (two bovine, one equine).

    Wow, scary stuff. I would have thought so, too - but only one shot fired? That sure made it seem like a robbery gone wrong.

    The guy walked up behind him at a club and shot him from behind, no robbery to it. I read it was actually 2 police officers who carried out the hit but haven't seen that confirmed yet.

    Writers for David Ortiz's life are scraping the bottom of the barrel with this "affair with a drug lord's girlfriend" sub-plot.

    Guy who shot him claims he meant to shoot someone else.

    Police identify man they claim paid hit men to shoot Red Sox star David Ortiz

    Dominican authorities on Monday identified the man they believe paid hit men to try to kill David Ortiz. They added that they were closing in on the motive behind the shooting of the three-time World Series champion, who is recovering at a hospital in Boston.

    The man was identified as Alberto Miguel Rodriguez Mota, whom authorities say is a fugitive. The announcement was made as a judge held a hearing closed to the public for another suspect nicknamed “Bone”. Officials did not release details, but according to court documents obtained by the Associated Press, the man, whose real name is Gabriel Alexander Perez Vizcaino, is accused of being the liaison between the alleged hit men and the person who paid them.

    The documents state that a man who is in prison for an unrelated case reached out to Perez for the alleged job a week before the 9 June shooting at a bar in Santo Domingo and sent him a picture of the target so he could share it with the hit men. Perez allegedly shared the picture with the other suspects as they gathered at a nearby gas station just minutes before the shooting. Officials have not said whether the picture was of Ortiz.

    The documents also state that Perez sold an iPhone used to plan the attack to a woman for $180 so he could get rid of the evidence a day after the shooting. “He did this upon finding out that police were looking for him,” the document states.
    The world is a messy place. People are inconsistent and complicated. Maybe we should see how different things could be if we gave grace and forgiveness to our fellow human beings when they fail to be perfect in our eyes. -- me
