My ole man would have made me run laps with a slug in me afterward.
The father will probably be charged.
Of course, now the son will be going after the dad. How long is this punk’s rap sheet?
This sure as hell isn’t the world I grew up in. The whole world has gone crazy.
Note to son: Never bring a knife to a gunfight. You acted stupidly.
Note to father: I am truly sorry that you were forced to use deadly force on a family member in defense of yourself and your son’s girlfriend.
