Yes indeedy! Two FELONY counts of possessing a FIREARM. The Department of Juvenile Justice of North Carolina, in a letter to the child’s parents, informed them that they considered the child’s crime to be a “violent felony.” Oh the horror of it all! The child was being punished for accidentally hitting a passing car. His BB gun… yes BB GUN, was taken away and community service at a local church to pay the $350 to repair the chip. (Hard for me to believe that a bb gun could cause any detectable damage in an automobile.) But that was not enough. The vile little mongrel must be taught a lesson, so now he faces the prospect of a year on probation, hundreds of hours of community service and a criminal record. Oh the horror of it! Next we’ll learn the violent little wretch is a Christian! Hell, what if he turns out to be a heterosexual? What is this world coming to?
There is actually a horror here. The horror is that this is a true story.
