Seems a guy in Atlanta shot a 17-year-old to death for egging his Mercedes.

On one hand, the retaliation was clearly out of line.

On the other hand, I'm sorely tempted to print out a copy of the article and tape it to my car; it's been egged twice in the last 10 months, and so I do believe a little wall-to-wall counseling might be in order for the perpetrators.

"At my last intern briefing, Craig was clearly tired. His message had changed to, "Stay out of trouble, period." It seemed that, as director of security, Livingstone was growing old fast. If he didn't watch out, he'd become one of us - a 'Mormon' or a 'straight,' which is what Clinton staffers called FBI agents, the Secret Service, and former Bush employees."

Well, the kid shouldn't have been egging.

I was kind hoping he didn't die after being gunned, so he could have actually learned something. I hope his family gets through this.

I guarantee that if you tape a copy of that article to your car, within 1 week you will have no intact windows left on said vehicle.
A threat means nothing if you're not prepared to carry it out. They know you're not going to shoot them, FI.

I hope he spends the rest of his natural life in prison. Then keep him locked up after he's dead for good measure.

My wife and I shook our heads on Saturday when we noticed medium eggs on sale for 50 cents a carton. Usually a buck something. GREAT time to have done that. icon-primal.gif

Was the toilet paper on sale, too?


No, of course the kid shouldn't have been vandalizing, but that guy was a whackjob. If it wasn't because of some kid and a carton of eggs, it would have been someone bumping his car in a Wal-Mart parking lot with a shopping cart. Or someone cutting him off in traffic. Or his wife serving him an undercooked steak. Or his kid mouthing off.

If someone is crazy enough to shoot someone because of some eggs, they were a ticking time bomb to begin with.

This doesn't sound right, it's just too excessive to be just for the egging.

People are batjive for their cars in Atlanta, but I suppose the fact that it was a /gold/ /entry-level/ luxury car should have been a huge tip-off about the owner's sanity in the first place. Pity, the egging was an improvement over THAT hideous color.

Edit: More details -- the driver actually RETURNED to the egging location. Premeditated, but also dumb because he cruised by AGAIN while police were on the scene. http://www.wsbtv.com...574/detail.html

Yeah and then everyone who's been egging your car will step up and start throwing rocks at your car.

Absolutely! I think it goes without saying. Also as a side note: the location, Joseph E. Boone Boulevard and Joseph E. Lowery Boulevard is in one (of 4!) of Atlanta's neighborhoods that made it into a 25 most dangerous neighborhoods to live in list.

This is why people like me are often such hard sells on whether we really need the second amendment in this day and age. This guy is probably not going to go to jail for all that long - although I'd be happy to be proven wrong. Too many people equate "right to bear arms" with "right to use them whenever for whatever reason" to shoot people for stupid-ass reasons.

Yeah, vandalism is terrible. But it's not worth killing someone over. Why the hell is that such a hard concept to some?
