    Good/Bad? Father shoots his son in defense of Son's GF and his own life, after son

    brings a knife to the gunfight.

    The father wasn't arrested and the son is in stable condition after father teaches him a lesson.

    I wonder if anything could have been done before hand to prevent this, such as the father restraining the son (If he was there when the conflict started) or after he walked into it.

    LOL does the father visit his son?

    What's going through the son head now that's he's handcuffed to the bed and once he's well he'll be in jail.

    What must the father be going through?

    I also wonder if the father and GF were getting to know each other quite well and Jr didn't like Sr showing the GF the original moves lol.

    Beforehand? Maybe they could have brought their son up to be a bit more respectful of women and his parents????

    The situation was "bad" wayyyy before the shot(s?) was fired. If my relationship with any of my three sons allows a knife to be pulled with intent, then a gunshot isn't much of a leap. Play bad games, win bad prizes!

    It must have been tough pulling the trigger.

    If as reported ...

    Sounds good. Teaching the little cretin a lesson he won't soon forget. That is, if he's got half a brain. Of course, he attempted murder and threatened another. Perhaps he still won't get it, instead choosing to believe he was put upon by the GF and dear ol' Dad. Will probably plead "not guilty" at the arraignment as well. Dad's gonna be going 'round and 'round for awhile, wondering where he went wrong.

    Get a clue, Junior. Actions have consequences. Be glad you only got shot and not buried, bub.

    From article;

    “The suspect reportedly lunged at his father with the knife, and in an apparent act of self-defense, the father fired his handgun at the suspect
    END.

    ^^Isn't this a definition of a good shoot?^^^^^^^^

    Sounds justifiable, but obviously a very messed-up situation.
