Man Killed for Cigarette: Smoking KILLS

By Alan Ng - May 10, 2010

It has been reported that Police are searching for a man after he killed a man after telling him that he didn’t have a cigarette to give him. The man was just 26 years old and died Monday morning after hitting his head on the sidewalk.

As reported from KPTV, the incident occurred when a man walked towards Lisney Oliveira and his friend, asking for a cigarette. His friend told the man that they had no cigarettes are proceeded to walk on, headed towards a club.

However, the man returned and striked Oliveira in the back of the head, causing him to fall down and hit his head on the sidewalk. He was sent to a local hospital but later died as a result of injuries.

What are your thoughts on this? It is worrying to hear that Police have still not located the man responsible for this – all over a simple cigarette.

    This has nothing to do with nicotine addiction. It could have been a piece of gum or a bucjk just as easily. It is about rampant violence and nothing more. The guy above is an idiot and by the way, I am not a smoker.

    Nothing to do with cigarettes…The guy probably has an anger mgmt issue and is a coward b/c he hit him in back of the head…Just like rape, it's not a sex thing, but a power thing…Same thing here….

    In any event, he took the life of a vibrant young man and doesn't deserve to walk the streets a free man anymore…Police have him on video, he needs to give himself up…..

    It probably has nothing to do with cigarettes..He's just a friggin bully….Lock him up for life…

    The killer should be awarded the same as he did to innocent Oliveira. These bloody nicotine addicts are becoming a menace.

    This is another example of the extremely selfish and violent behavior of the nicotine addicts. The cigarette addicts have no feelings. They have no love, affection or compassion for anybody. All they care about is their daily dose of cigarettes, and incidents like this prove that they can go to any extent, even kill an innocent person, for their addiction. May poor Oliveira's soul rest in peace. I pray to God to give strength to his family to bear this shock. The addict who killed innocent Oliveira should be charged with first degree murder and be given the stringest punishment. It is a shame that an innocent person is killed on the street because he was not carrying cigarettes on him to please a nicotine addict. I have been a witness to cigarette addicts' aggressive behavior on a few occassions when they might have been asked not to smoke in public. Though they'd do any thing to find a place and a cigarette.
