DAILYKENN.com -- 25-year-old Michael Davis went to work as a responsible adult. Two others apparently attempted a short cut and tried their hands at robbery.
It is a cultural divide.
A neighbor broke with politically correct protocol and noticed two black males in the area.
When you spot black males in your neighborhood, take note. Consider snapping a photo or taking a video with your cell phone. Another option is to call police to report suspicious persons. You may save a life.

PALMER TWP., Pa. - Officials have announced homicide charges in the shooting of a Verizon store employee in Northampton County in 2016.
District Attorney John Morganelli said Vaughn Felix, 27, and Gregory Lewis, 27, are now charged in the murder of Michael Davis, 25.
Davis was shot and killed in front of his house along Eldridge Drive in Palmer Township after leaving his job at the Verizon store in Forks Township.
Morganelli said the pair wanted to abduct Davis and take him back to the store to commit more robberies.
"They were sophisticated enough to observe the stores, check them out, the kind of security they may have, not have," said Assistant District Attorney Patricia Mulqueen.
Police say they had their eyes on both men for a while using cell phone tracking technology to place them at the scene of several crimes.
A neighbor told 69 News shortly after Davis died he had seen the suspects lurking in the neighborhood.
"I was watching football, happened to look out and see two guys dressed in black go behind the house here."
Felix and Lewis are also charged in the abduction of another Verizon store employee a day after Davis was killed.
Officials say that man was forced into his own car and assaulted, but he was able to escape and knock on a neighbor's door.
Authorities said they do not plan on charging anyone else in the homicide.
Felix and Lewis remain in Northampton County Prison.
