    Ever heard Immortal Technique's "Dance with the Devil?"



    This song is faintly similar.

    As to that boy--why he's charging his Father with a Knife or breaking into his Sister's house, I have no idea.

    tragic. he pulled his gun and shot to kill someone's son, only to find it was his own.

    In an odd sort of way, it seems fitting that the one that would take a life would lose something of his own self.. his own seed. Either way, some father/mother or brother or sister or aunt or cousin somewhere would have been beside themselves with grief.. and they would have questioned the use of deadly force.. and the story of the knife.. and they would have directed their disdain at the one who pulled the trigger.. and they still will.

    It would be truly surprising if his family relationships survive this. What a horrible price to pay.. his own son.. and maybe some prison time to go with it. In California, he would be going to prison. You don't have the right to shoot someone breaking in your neighbors house. I suspect it's the same in his state, which is why he made up the story about his son charging with a knife toward a man.. his father.. with a gun. Now throw the guilt of lying on top of all of this.. of further sullying his own son's name.. of placing the knife on the ground near his dead son.. whose life he took with his own hands.. who he probably watched bleed out right there in front of his house. Imagine the psychic scars of knowing you did nothing as your son died right in front of you.. what a tragedy. This is completely suicide worthy.

    It was his adopted son. He won't get a sentence. But poignant comment no less.
