Be a dumbass, you may die (paintball related)

Paintball prank ends with fatal freeway wreck
Copyright 2004 Houston Chronicle


A teenager in a sport utility vehicle with three other teens who were shooting trick-or-treaters with paintball guns was killed late Sunday when the vehicle was struck by a pickup, police said.

The accident occurred at about 8 p.m. on Cavalcade and the North Freeway, said Houston Police officer Jeff Larson.

"Somebody chased them down and ended up hitting the suspect vehicle."

The Suburban carrying the four teens lost control after being struck and rolled over.

The unidentified teen, a passenger in the SUV, died at a hospital, Larson said.

The truck driver, who may have been intoxicated, may face charges, he said.

Good I'm happy the retards are dead. WTF is that crap shooting little kids with paint balls? Also a SUV I'm going to guess mom and daddy got it for him and that is why he had no respect for anything.

How can kids be so bloody retarted, I say good riddance to the one who died.

I thought the motto was: "Drive friendly, the Texas way."

I don't know if anybody deserved to die from this, but the kids were definitely being stupid and irresponsible.

I hope the person who rammed the vehicle filled with retards is just a random vigilante, because that'll be even more tragic if it's the father of one of the kids who was shot with a paint-ball gun.

A texas jury isn't going to convict anyone who says something like "I saw some people... possibily terrorists... shooting at kids and thought it was my duty as an American, to protect those beloved children."

Maybe put the icing on the cake by adding, "...and they had big big heads, like that guy who's running against Bush."

I think this is complicated by the fact that the person who rammed the other car, probably didn't mean to, or could have thought they were firing actual guns.

Why is it not okay to beat the hell out of egg throwers?

Personally, I say it's not okay to try to actually kill them, but it's fine if you're shooting to wound only. Aim low, in other words, and it's good.
