I find Dovey's fanaticism unsettling and suspicious. It is as if he has something to cover up!

And I too thought Dollface's uncanny prediction of the death of one of our most esteemed citizens was fishy.

I say let it be up to St. Peter decide whether they are guilty or not, by bringing them to heaven's doorstep!

Dollface. It might have been coincidence, but it's the only real lead we've got to go on.

I will hold on to my other vote for now.

The trial was just for show, passion ruling the day. The people wanted blood, and blood they got. Dollface and Avec were sent to the chair, and fried like baked potatoes. However, it seems Avec was quite innocent. An alibi that came too late exonerated him. A citizen was killed. Dollface, however, was a Shark through and through. Some justice was served in the end.

Tonight, its certain there will be evil deeds done. No good deed goes unpunished.

Blue Kitty was up late. He knew he should be off the streets by now, but his 'meetings' took longer than expected. Then he heard drawing near the clarion call of his doom:

"When you're a Jet,
You're a Jet all the way
From your first cigarette
To your last dyin' day.
When you're a Jet,
Let 'em do what they can.
You got brothers around,
You're a family man! "

He was found the next morning downtown. And uptown. The Jets have made clear they will not be trifled with. But they were not alone last night. It was not until Sir Juggles failed to show for work that someone checked his apartment. It took six officers to finally clear the dogs off what remained of the body.

Two more dead. Justice needs to be done, swiftly, before the bloodbath continues. Citizens of New York, name your next two suspects.

This coming from one of the mob who cried for Avec's innocent blood!

And Sam, why, if I may ask, was your leg broken? It may be an alibi for last night's murder, but hardly one that covers the murder of Patrick, or of Khar - who was found floating in the East River. And how does the East River flow? From uptown to downtown I tell you! I am not convinced by this feeble attempt at an excuse.

Yayniall  and Ledhendrix did not vote for Dollface last round. I'm just sayin'.

Hrm. This post says a lot, doesn't it.

Why is Iron Oxide calling out against two people who didn't vote for Dollface? Dollface, in death, was revealed to be a Shark. So, looking at this logically, I believe Iron Oxide is trying to point out to us that it is likely for them to be Sharks as well. After all, why would anyone but his fellow gang members not vote against him, right? He had obviously done something.

My point here is this. Iron Oxide, in his outright desire to destroy as many sharks as possible, is making me suspicious. Who wants the Sharks dead more than a Jet? What other reason would he be basing his decision on, aside from killing as many sharks as possible? There are already two dead sharks. No Jet blood has been spilled yet. The greater this division becomes, the more likely it is that the Jets will triumph over their Sharky rivals and subjugate the peace loving people of New York City to a life of gang ruled streets. Lets shoot this jet down, people. We can't afford to let their advantage grow any more.

2 things, 1 who's the second shark? secondly it would be no bad thing to kill off either group first as that would mean we would only have one murder per night.
On that note should there only be one gang remaining do we still get two votes and two hangings per day?

There are already two dead sharks. No Jet blood has been spilled yet.

As far as I recall only Dollface has been proven to have any concrete gang affiliation. Who but one of the sharks would know the amount of Shark blood already spilled? I think I will be changing my vote from onewheelwizard to Professor Snuggles

Two more dead. Justice needs to be done, swiftly, before the bloodbath continues. Citizens of New York, name your next two suspects.

I guess I was doing the reason thing again? The "meetings" thing made me think he was being implied as sketchy. And the fact that there is a whole thing about Blue Kitty, and the specifics of which gang killed him, whereas Sir Juggles just wakes up dead in his apartment, in the same way Khar and Patrick just died, makes me think he's not just a dude. It's not concrete, but I know tyler and his flair for the theatric pretty well, and as far as I can tell, my logic is sound.

But you know, you can totally kill me off if you want. Obviously, I used my knowledge of my own gang, the shark's, roster to make sure I could get one of our own members killed in the first turn. That is definitely the thing that I would be doing to support the success of my gang over the Jets.

It's a valiant attempt to save yourself, doggie, but your logic is flawed, and your life is over.

Second vote goes to StaedlerMars
