The only thing bad about this is that he threatened his wife. If someone wants to shoot their television, go for it and leave them the hell alone.

What about Wreckless Discharge? Until Prosecutor's get serious about gun crimes, they will continue. But at least we don't have some idiotic liberal blaming the gun. BTW, was he drun k at the time of the crime? That's anotther crime!

I bet he still considers himself smarter and more socially tolerant than Bristol. What an idiot! Just turn the freakin station.

I've got to feel sorry for this individual in that he does, after all, live in Wisconsin. I used to chuckle about cheesehead jokes and the goofy things that went on over there (Wisconsin) but no more. I now can see how these poor people go nuts in that Wisconsin state government is such a basketcase. Or the unions controlling it? Which I don't know? Is it any wonder persons such as the poor guy in this news piece flip out? Glad I don't live over there.

We're glad you don't live here too. You can stay in the land of Dayton and Franken and continue to think WI is a joke. We will be glad to see your employer move his business here due to better tax rates and government. Just hope you get left behind a******e.

Every time my wife watches this show, I just go out to the garage and drink beer. Sometimes I feel like shooting the TV when Mauer grounds out to second every time. However, I can't understand this guy getting so upset over a stupid reality show...

Lack of personal responsibility.

Kind of like some of the Repubs that have been convicted over the last 5 years (who would've thought).

At the same time...plenty of Dems have bit the dust too.

Just goes to show that the general moral "level" in this country basically s**ks.
