I'd be remiss if I didn't note this item at John Hawkins' Right Wing News:

***: The plot just thickened. We now have an interesting twist involving the Nation of Islam. RWN reader DANEgerus points out this article about the 10th victim of the sniper in the New York times...

"In the 1980's, Mr. Bridges helped start a program with an agenda similar to that of [self-help business development project-pw] Matah, called Power, or People Organized and Working for Economic Rebirth. Mr. Wellington said the program ran into trouble after he and Mr. Bridges had a disagreement with Louis Farrakhan, the leader of the Nation of Islam, over the extent to which the two groups should be linked. Mr. Bridges distanced himself from Power, Mr. Wellington said, and helped found Matah about 10 years later."

Out of all the "random" victims the sniper picked out doesn't it seem odd that this guy was one of the people who was murdered? Is this simply pure coincidence or is there something more at work here? Either way, this certainly deserves to be investigated further.

I don't believe for a second that Bridges' disagreement led to his murder by a sniper avenging Farakkhan. Disappointment over that mild a business relationship doesn't rise to the level of murder, and it would take a heck of a lot of intelligence to locate Bridges at a gas station in Fredicksburg, Va. far from his Philadelphia home, at a particular time with an appropriate escape route.... forget it, doesn't make sense. You'd have to accept the idea that the other murders were intended as cover for Bridges'. Sounds nuts, is nuts, and one poster at Right Wing News has already suggested it. No.

Incidentally, considering all my posts on the Nation of Islam, I should have already called attention to the fact that Farakkhan has condemned the killings and expressed dismay that John Muhammad had been enrolled as a NOI member.
