haha. I think the mafia wants people to know when they "hit" somebody, they don't hide it or disguise it. It is intended to send a message and intimidate, so I don't think they would find a "cutesy" way of doing it, but who knows about the spanish mob. Some garage door openers have a torque feedback system that senses a change in the force of the motor to run and will either stop or reverse itself. I don't think that these settings are adjustable, they come factory set, but maybe the newer ones are. Other ones have photo eyes that can tell when an object is in front of the opening and will not close. The article said he was crushed between the car and the automatic door, but nothing said where he was at, in the vehicle with the top down, or laying on the hood. It does seem wierd that one of the failsafe over rides would not have kicked in if the garage door had been in auto. Maybe he has a really heavy garage dor and it was not engaged and just came down hard across his neck or head or something.
