Teen Kills Dad Over Snacks
Newsday.com ^ | 6/13/05

Authorities say a disagreement over a frozen snack led a McComb teenager to fatally shoot his father and threaten his mother. Curtis McCray Jr., 16, was arrested and charged with murder last week after allegedly shooting Curtis McCray Sr. with a shotgun from about 20 feet away, the Pike County Sheriff's Department said.

Investigator David Haywood said the shooting occurred after the teen was punished for being involved in a minor wreck, and the boy became enraged when his parents returned home eating Sno-Balls and there wasn't one for him.

The teen then allegedly threatened his mother, Gloria, with the gun before speeding away in the family's car and leading authorities on a one-hour high-speed chase through three counties, Haygood said.

McCray was chased on Interstate 55 at speeds up to 115 mph and police set up stop sticks to deflate his tires. He was taken into custody in Marion County.

The teenager is being charged as an adult and is also charged with felony pursuit, Haygood said.

Sno-balls aren't even that good, I think they're disgusting in fact. Goldfish and Combos maybe, but Sno-balls?

The suspect is spherical shaped with pink skin and a gooey white interior.

I was thinking it had to be a Twinkie or some Peeps. Snowballs ARE pretty disgusting except as a kind of pop art object ("obb-jhay) and when they're dyed bright green for St. Pat's day.

Well, at least he didn't use one of those "cheap" Hi Point handgunds to shoot him with.

"Authorities say a disagreement over a frozen snack... " I think that they meant the crushed ice with colored sugar water poured over it. Not that it is even close the being good enough to kill some one over. Damn!!

What would you do for a Knondike bar?

Would you stand on one foot?
Would you act like a monkey?
Will you kill a man?

I see troubled kids everyday, and on the rare occasion, one will come through the system and you just think of Whitman climbing the tower.
It's as if these kids have NEVER been told "NO" or have NEVER been disciplined, or have NEVER had to suffer the consequences of their actions or have NEVER had the chance to be a kid, they are their own parent or 'Parent' their parents. They are 'Spoiled-Rotten'
