The Face of Conservatism: Dead Kids Are Funny

From this piece of foul bloggery:
One would have to have a heart of stone to fail to be amused by the death of this little punk:
A 65-year-old man who was knocked off his bicycle by three teenagers on a Pennsylvania trail shot two of them, killing one, police said according to reports. The Reading Eagle newspaper said the wounded teen, 16, was taken to hospital and the third, aged 15, was taken in for questioning and was later committed to a youth center.... According to police, the 65-year-old was riding his bicycle when the teens knocked him to the ground, the station said. Police said two teens then assaulted the man, who drew his gun and shot them.

What a pity that's not on YouTube. Can you imagine the expression on the face of the dying little prick? One moment, he thinks he's a happy-slapping bad ass impressing his friends with a little casual assault-and-battery and the very next moment, it's game over. For good. Way to go, tough guy.

Concealed carry is certainly one of the more effective means of teaching the little bastards to show the elderly at least a modicum of respect.
Unfortunately, it speaks for itself.

Sigh. Some of these kids are just brats. Some would say that it was just a prank but as an old, handicapped lady, I sure don't think so. I get tired of those who say "they're just kids". I taught my kids to be nice to old people and they were. I wonder how these brats treat their granny.

And oh yeah, you're featured at the Groaner of the Week today.

If you want to live a long and healthly life devoid of lead poisioning you shouldn't be out knocking retired people off their bikes. 15 is old enough to know better.

Lets not forget that according to your retelling of the story this was an unprovoked act of extreme violence against a senior citizen. The citizen who was attacked is the victim here.He had every right to defend himslef from his attackers.

Kay- Yeah, I don't see this at the level of a prank either.

Anon- The point of my post was that idiot who was retelling the tale was giddy with amusement. The woman certainly defended herself appropriately, but the child's death is still unfortunate.
