Okay fellow germs and virii. I'm...perturbed.  [Shut up basset!]

There was here in Texas the other day a shooting of a 17yr old male.  Why was he shot? well lets just reel off the highlights shall we?
A. he was in the bed of the 16yr old  daughter of the man that shot him at 2 in the fucking morning.
B. He had a gun being held on him and was told not to make any moves.
C. he moved...father shot him..

Wait? more detail?  Okay here's what we know so far.
1. The father was woken up by one of his 3 sons and told that there was noise coming from the daughters room.
2. Daddy grabs the gun to go check it out.
3. Upon entering he witnesses strange male in bed with his daughter.
4. When asked if she knew him the dimple darling daughter replied Nope.
5. 17yr old male told NOT to make any funny moves.
6. Apparently he went to reach for something and the father, reasonably...shot him.
7.  It now comes out that...
a. Daughter in fact DID know the lad in question because
b. he was her "boy friend"  So she let him in. So...
c. because she lied to daddy, that boy is deader than the home cooked cheeseburger that graced my plate for dinner night before last.

Is anyone mad at the daughter for lying?  2answers to that . some are. the rest? Nope the rest are all decrying the "ebil" gun owing father who was doing, he thought, his goddamn job and protecting is daughter and the rest of his family!   He didn't know the 17yr old lad in question. For all he knew the lad when he moved was going for a weapon of his own.  Therefore...for my money, fully justified shooting for what information he had at the time!

Someone on a friends facebook post about this commented that both daughter and father should be charged with manslaughter. about....... NO!  Again, fully justified shooting for what the father knew at the time.

Couple questions come to mind.
If that lad was truly her boyfriend...why hadn't the father met him yet?
Had anyone ELSE in the family been intro'd to the boyfriend?  Like saayy...mommy? [who was according to reports, at work.]
How long had they been 'dating'?

See,,,way I was some point in the dating process, preferably early...I'm gonna end up introduced to the ladies family.   Now I never did any dating in high school was a shy fat kid who was bullied alot. So I didn't see any reason to put myself out there to be hurt more.  If I had dated I'd have fully expected to meet at least SOME of her family when I picked her up for our first date, or 2nd date, or 3rd etc.....not be invited into the house and into her bed at 2 in the goddamn morning! OTOH I don't think I'd have been out and over there that late anyway, so the boy is as guilty of stupidity in this case as the daughter.

So again...for my money, the girl is directly responsible for her "boyfriends" death. So is he, but he's already paid the ultimate price for his and her folly.  I wonder how the boy reacted to her telling that lie to daddy, right then and there. Betrayed? Understanding because he didn't want her getting into huge trouble with pops?  Welll we'll never know the answer to that one now. Will we?

So to finish up, if she hadn't lied to daddy the boy would still be alive. He may very well have been handed a beating, and a talking to in the process between blows as was his due at that point, but he'd still be alive.  The girl would have probably been grounded for a good long while, but she wouldn't now have to live with the catastrophic results of her stupidity.  If you find my attitude strange let me put it another way. do NOT lie to your father because you don't want to get into trouble/grounded  when he's holding a gun on your "boyfriend" goddammit!!!

Spoiled Brat? yeah probably but..

Interesting case up Jersey way. an 18yr old is suing her parents for private school tuition, her pending college fees and legal fees engendered by her lawsuit of her parents.

Now she claims her parents threw her out of the home upon her 18th birthday

Rachel Canning claims she’s been out of her parents’ home since her 18th birthday, Nov. 1, after her parents vowed to cut her off “from all support both financially and emotionally.”

However her parents say she threw a temper tantrum and stormed out of the house and they've since cut her off because of her inability to abide by the "house rules" of her parents. Which...most parents have in one form or another.

Sean Canning says the athletic, brainy teen refused to follow the rules of his home, like being respectful, doing chores, coming home by curfew and breaking off a relationship with a boyfriend the parents dislike.
Okay...the 1st 3 rules of the house mentioned aren't that heinous.  Sorry kids...but it's for your own good. I never had to worry much about rule 3 because well..I was never one to go out with friends because frankly..I didn't really have any.  As for rule 4 which is really an ultimatum not a rule. 1. why do the parent's dislike the boy so much? is he abusive? manipulative?  Maybe he's a player and their girl is to far gone in love to recognize or acknowledge it?  Or is it just a case of "no one is good enough for daddy's girl"?    I'm not a father but I am a doting, protective  uncle and I'm already trying to figure out what I'm gonna do with the bodies of anyone who hurts my nieces.  I'm leaning towards the purchase of a large industrial grade woodchipper at the moment.

Further muddying the waters of this little brouhaha...

Further complicating the matter is Rachel Canning’s allegation of domestic abuse last October and a teacher who witnessed the teen and her mother engaged in a rough conversation that ended in a nasty way.
But Sean Canning, furious that the family feud has reached the courts, claims a Division of Child Protection and Permanency representative visited the family home and found Rachel was a “spoiled” and petulant child and ended the investigation

So there was an allegation of abuse and CPS came out and investigated? And concluded that the girl is just a spoiled brat?  Hmmmm

And then there's this bit?

The Morris Catholic High School senior and lacrosse player instead has lived at the Rockaway, N.J., home of a classmate, whose father, John Inglesino, has foot the bill for the suit.

One wonders why her friends father is footing the bill of this lawsuit?  Call me a cynical, suspicious son of a bitch if you want but...this makes me...a tad uneasy.  Note the latter statement is again coming from a doting uncle who's nieces have had him wrapped around their little fingers since they were born, and I'm still a tad suspicious of this.

Now frankly?  if she did walk out in a snit as the parents contend? I'd have probably not cut off the tuition for the kid's final year of high school. I'd have  paid that off so she can finish her schooling if she hasn't already and let her go on her merry way.   Then there is the bit about them diverting the funds they'd put aside in an account for her college?  Shrug. One guesses that the money in that account was provided for by the parents and not her from the sounds of it, therefore it's still their money.  Now if it was a trust fund set up in her name that she couldn't touch til a certain point...I'm not sure what the law on that would be.

If as she contends they threw her out? Then yeah she might have a case. However at 18 you are legally and adult sooo..I don't know.

I've got multiple questions about this brouhaha that ain't been answered and might not be for the forseeable I'll reserve judgement.

Oh! the link to the article! duhhh. sorry about that.
