Did motherís urge to play Yahtzee cause son to strangle her?

Tamara Lee Mason wanted to play Yahtzee with her three sons after they all returned home from Christmas dinner at a friend's. When the boys wouldn't, she got mad, grabbed a few things and stormed out of the house.

That's the story Mason's oldest, Dylan C. Clemens, told investigators back on Dec. 27, according to criminal charges filed in Stevens County District Court. A much stranger story is laid out in criminal charges filed Tuesday against Clemens, 25. His half-brothers Andrew Q. Cobb, 18, and Jacob S. Cobb, 17, were charged Friday.

Mason's decomposing remains were found Thursday buried in the back yard of her home in Alberta, a town of about 130 people in far western Minnesota.

Does the second amendment protect the rights of citizens to play Yahtzee?

If not, the activists are going to get it banned.

If only the citizens could do this when “father” Obama gets mad, “grabs a few things and storms out of meetings.”

The Late Yahtzee Aficionado.

"It is very strange," Stevens County Sheriff Randy Willis said Tuesday. "She wanted to play Yahtzee and they didn't. That seemed to be, in their minds, what expedited her sudden demise."

Of the family, Willis said, "It's probably not the most functional family in the world, but it's not the most dysfunctional, either."

I'd hate to see more a more dysfunctional family.

Kids with a bunch of different names, family friends who freely share information on how to dispose of both stolen property and corpses . . . this is Obama's America.

17 year old stepson couldn’t take it any more so he kills step mom.

Gee, you couldn’t just move out, asshole? Or was wicked step mommy supporting your lazy murdering ass?

And the other two, they cover it up...how stupid are they, anyway?

In our house it's usually playing the game that starts the problems. My saintly mother, 50 years a loving and devoted pastor's wife, missionary and author called me a "jerk" in front of her grandchildren because I took the letter she wanted to use in Scrabble.
