Sounds like the west side. People have been setting off the firecrackers for 3 days now. They start drinking about noon and are up all night drinking, screaming, fighting, basically raising two kinds of hell. People have no regard for their neighbors anymore. Sometimes I feel like I living on another planet around all these savages.

The guy is a nut. He should be charged with attempted murder. You fire a gun into a house - how is that any different than a drive-by shooting?
He will probably get fined and turned loose on society, only to do something worse next time. I wonder what the guys past history is.

Abby:

The guy said he shot at the house cause it had a sign on it that said: "Shoot This House."

Is this a viable defense?

How it happened (explained by his lawyer)

1.) He drank a case of PBR.
2.) The house he shot reminded him of his ex-wife.
3.) More drinking.
4.) More memories of his ex.
5.) Read the Dispatch--got even madder.
6.) Fired at house---nice grouping of shots.
7.) Goes to court.
8.) Gets job with BP as security guard (PBR included).

pretty stupid, but theyll have to reduce it. That charge is knowingly shooting into a house and is a very serious charge. It appears his place was a good distance and wasnt visible because he and the cops couldnt even see each other from that house to his. I hope he doesnt plea bargain and found not guilty. The cops should have given him the correct charge to begin with rather than play their stupid common game of overcharging to scare someone into a bargain. I hate liars and the plea bargain game makes cops liars everytime.

What's all the fuss about. 10 years ago he would have hit that squirrel with 1 shot.
