    RATAS/BMXER DIED

    Discussion started by THE FAILURE - Nov 18, 2003

    On Monday, November 17th, Ratas Lts AKA Bmxer was shot and killed
    doing a roller piece in Los Angeles. Apperently he was in LA visiting
    his folks. Although he wasnt the greatest of writers, he was a good kid
    who could hang with the best of them. If anyone knows any more
    about what happened, let me know.

    Damn, that's fucked up... I hope this shit is just a rumor. I met that kat at the Montgomery Ward building back when and he seemed like a koo kat. I hope it's just someone fucking around, but if not, Rest In Power Ratas...crush the sky

    I talked to BMX'r a few times when he was working in Brekeley. Most writers as good and up as him are assholes to writers like me, but he was suprisingly nice. He semed like a genuinly good person.

    fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice shame on me

    not to be a total heartless dick and if this is true, my deepest sympathies, but this shit sounds like a whole lot of utter bullshit. it is almost exactly like the bullshit thread started about two months back about "SABER getting shot and killed while doing a roller in los angeles" and that thread was a whole lot of bullshit internet lies, so yeh... i have a real hard time believeing this.

    the thread starts saying..if anyone knows what happened let me know..so it sounds questionable..if not senseless violence is way too out of hand these days.. another bay cat SPEKT1 wc.btl got ran over by some punk intentionally, that had to use a vehical instead of his fists like a real man...men settle shit without fuckin guns.
