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!!!

Remember.....TANSTAAFL and...

I now return you to your regularly scheduled inanity and insanity.
