The summary:  A man from Florida visiting Las Vegas is in jail following a confrontation with a Utah man that left the victim dead after a single punch to the jaw.

The reaction:  It’s being reported that the Utah man (a white man by the way) made a racial comment to the Florida man (a black man) and that led to the fight.

That must’ve been one hell of a punch.  I’m guessing the guy didn’t intend to kill this guy who mouthed off to him but he probably did intend to issue some punishment.  It’s probably unfortunate that he could be facing some serious jail time but that tends to happen when you kill a guy.
