Another Argument For Rounding The Fuckers Up And Shooting Them

Los Angeles, CA

A 13 year old boy was shot several times and killed this morning around 1 a.m. outside an apartment complex at Avalon Boulevard and East 84th Place.

The shooting is suspected to be gang related, though the boy had no known gang affiliations.

Did I mention that he was 13? Had his voice even started changing yet?

And people wonder why I think vigilantism is a good idea.

No gang relations ?

What is a 13 year old kid doing outside his apartment building at 1am in the morning.

That don't add up.

Stephen Blackmoore said...

Yeah, I have trouble with that one, too. And then I remember how much of an insomniac I was as a kid.

Hell, I don't know. Maybe I'm just upset that kids are getting killed at all. That they're in a position and a place and a time that this is a real part of their lives.

13 year olds shouldn't have to worry about this shit. Hell, adults shouldn't have to worry about this shit.

Endorsing vigilantism would be great except that the fuckwads who did this would just call themselves vigilantes and keep up the shit.

Not that I would weep if a loud block party suddenly experienced an unexplained explosion in their midst...

Oh, why wait to round the fuckers up and shoot them? I know it would be fun, but why not just enforce mandatory abortions? 9 out of 10 kids are a pain in the ass anyway.

Now I'm going to go kill me some cats so that ALL the DLers hate me!

(It's a joke, dammit.)

Stephen Blackmoore said...

Interesting point, actually. Though I haven't read the book, yet, Freakonomics raises the interesting point that reduction in crime statistics also corresponds to the legalization and increase in number of of abortions in the United States.

And Sandra, I thought all the DL-ers hated you, anyway? Wouldn't that just be tossing more gasoline on the fire? Not that that's bad, mind you, just curious.

Sandra Ruttan said...

Sniff, Stephen, no. One DLer likes me. And it has me so confused I don't know how to cope.

Konrath's looking forward to the fire though. He's bringing his pitchfork so he can roast his weenies.
