Daily News: Khalil Slight, Professional Hoodlum

Philadelphia Daily News profiles career criminal.

Khalil Slight's thank you to a taxicab driver who took him home, according to court records, was a demand that the driver fork over the day's profits.

Slight, then 17, ended the robbery with a spray of gunfire that shattered the horrified hack's rear window as he drove away, the records say.

Just seven hours later, Slight terrorized another cabbie at the same location, stealing his cash and urging an accomplice to "shoot the mother f---er anyway," court documents show.

Prosecution was dropped in both 2001 cases when witnesses failed to show up in court.

The alleged incidents capped a prolific juvenile record that included 13 arrests for gun offenses, assault, car and retail theft, bringing a weapon to school, robbery and drug possession and distribution.
