    I need to vent

    Yesterday, my son, who along with other family members, own a landscaping business. He was out cutting a customers lawn when the neighbor came out yelling and cursing, armed with a baseball bat. He hit my son with the bat. Michael, my son, managed to get the bat away from the guy. Then the guy pulls out a gun and shoots him. He got shot for grass clippings. He is in ICU. Missing a piece of lung, a kidney, and spleen. They will be removing the breathing tube in a couple hours. The guy that did it, was arrested and will be charged with felonious assault. It's on all the local news channels.

    I am glad that I am on the back nine of life. What is this world coming to?

    Wow, that is crazy. I googled it out of interest and found the 911 call, the guys sounds so calm for just shooting somebody over nothing. Sounds like he's a real nutjob

    Felonious assault sounds like the type of thing that won't even get the guy jail time. What about attempted murder? Seems like that's what you are attempting to do if you shoot someone.

    A couple years back we had a customer type in an email that he would shoot one of our techs if they didn't fix his machine that day. Instead of contacting the police, he is still a customer of ours somehow.

    Crazy world we live in.

    To say this is insane would be an understatement. Hitting the panic button prior to going out to fight shows intent to harm. Hopefully he is put into storage for a long time.

    Agreed. Seems like it would be hard to claim self defense when you're in the safety of your house, hit a panic button then intentionally go back outside armed.

    He is out of ICU as of this morning. The prosecutor may up the charges to attempted murder.

    Well it went before a grand jury. The new charges are attempted murder, 2 counts. Felonious assault 1st. degree, 2 counts. 2 cun specification charges. Bond set at 500,000.00. At least he won't see grass for 20-25 years.
