    Obviously the shooter could not read the sign; they need to incorporate pictographs on the safe passage signs to ensure all cultures and nationalities know they cannot shoot people in these areas. I mean come on. What if a visiting Japanese dude suddenly gets the urge to pop somebody in a safe passage area and he does not understand the words on the sign? He would clearly get out of the murder charge on a technicality. Poor shooter, if he would have just waited till his victim had walked one block over to a non-safe passage area we would all be cool today (snark).
