It’s Hitmen All the Way Down 

Very clever, hitmen, very clever!

I regularly see stories in the news of attempted murders-for-hire being foiled because the supposed hitman reports the matter to the police, or is in fact an actual cop working undercover. When I read these stories, I frequently find myself shocked at just how little people think an assassination might cost. A $1500 price tag should really be a red flag! On a similarly dumb note, the honeytrap website has been discussed multiple times. Its continued existence is both depressing and amusing.

With how often I hear about attempted assassinations, and how rarely I hear about successful ones, I’ve even considered the possibility that there are no assassins outside of Hollywood movies and the pages of fiction. It appears that is not actually the case, at least not if we go global. In China, a collection of ever-cheaper hitmen kept farming out a job, in ridiculous fashion.

Still, I suppose none of these criminals actually did commit a murder for money. I guess we still don’t have any proof assassins are real.
