Maybe...or just another reason we need new gun laws (/s)
Could be. Weird that one was stabbed and one was shot. Unless they each had a weapon...
“Senator Creigh Deeds is in serious condition after being assaulted by his son in his Bath County home “
dead men tell no tales?
I just hate these kinds of stories. It's just impossible for me to think of anything that would have driven me to commit violence on my dad...
I have known Sen. Deeds for many years, going back to when he was in the House of Delegates. He is a great guy. He was responsible for the amendment to the state constitution preserving the right to hunt and fish in Virginia (a totally unnecessary amendment, but you never know).
Deeds lives in the state’s least populous county, Bath County, where there are natural hot springs and the Homestead resort. About 3,000 people live there, I think. It is against the West Va line.
I have never met his son.
Deeds ended up in a recount in his race for attorney general, losing by about 400 votes, I think. He lost to the man now governor, McDonall.
Very tragic for the fractured families; so much divorce, pain, and mental illness; young men need jobs and their own families; need independence.
Without knowing any facts, that was the first thing that popped into my head as well. One stabbed and one shot. Why not shoot both if it was an intruder?
Yep. I believe one got stabbed and the other shot back in self defense.
CNN is reporting that the son tried to check into a mental health facility yesterday but was turned away for lack of beds. I’m not sure if that means he tried to do so voluntarily or if the family tried to have him committed.
