could you please tell me what "capping" means in the following sentence:
"They have benn saying that the death squads have been capping their friends."
Thanks a lot!
"To cap" means "to kill" (usually by shooting).
It's a slang expression that comes from gang culture in the US (or possibly Jamaica, I'm not sure).
Boothling is correct, it is a slang phrase that means to shoot someone. If you "pop a cap" into someone, it means that you've shot them.
