As an old combat veteran of Viet Nam, I must say that this incident is both good and bad. It is good that the people in the car were not physically harmed, but it is tragic that a 13 year old child died. It is also tragic that the survivors will have to live with their memories of that trauma. Now, the police will have to come up with some answers. Where did the child get the gun? Was this gang related? Perhaps some sort of warped initiation ritual? Our bully boys in blue should be keeping the public advised on what they are doing to pursue this incident. It is not over until we get some answers.

All I can say is nice shooting. Did they let the sharpshooter get some pics with his trophy?

Does this mean the shooter had a valid hunting license? Is a nignog big game or small game? Are you required to tag the animal? Is baiting with watermelon legal? Is baiting with gold jewelry legal or does that violate federal rights?
