Athens teen shoots mother


By Joe Johnson

A 13-year-old Athens boy reportedly was in custody Tuesday after he shot his mother with a gun last week.

According to an Athens-Clarke County police report, officers responded to a home in a westside neighborhood shortly before 3:30 p.m. Friday to investigate reports that a juvenile had shot his mother.

Shortly after officers arrived at the residence, they took the boy into custody and firefighters were on scene to treat the victim for a gunshot wound in her arm, the report noted.

The officer who wrote the incident report said that while he did not formally conduct any interviews, he overheard the victim say that she and her son had an argument in which the boy pulled a gun on her and she wrestled him over the weapon before he ran out the back door.

The woman stated that when she went to shut the door she heard two gunshots, one of which passed through the door and struck her in the arm, according to the police report.

Officers observed two bullet holes in the back door and located one spent cartridge case, but not where the boy stashed the gun, the report noted.

The state Department of Juvenile Justice ordered the teen to be detained at a DJJ facility on charges of aggravated assault, possession of a firearm during the commission of certain felonies, and possession of a pistol by someone under 18 years old.

Face it y’all…this kids prison cell is already measured for him.


If THIS is how he rolls then there’s NO HOPE for him. No counseling is going to save him. He’ll just get worse

Because when a police officer does, sadly, have to shoot somebody under 18 years old that possesses a firarm and pointed at them, who’s the first ones to protest about it? It’s not the Conservatives. I’m not saying all Democrats are anti-2nd amendment and anti-crime.

What I am saying is it seems all anti-Second Amendment people and anti-crime people are only Democrats.

I guess I still don’t get why leftists think nobody under 18 can pick up and shoot a gun. Of course they know that can happen.

Ah! A child’s LOVE for his mother!

It’s stories like this where a 13-year-old or even a child younger that easily picks up AND uses a firearm on somebody does not get any sympathy for me when they pull shit like this and the police and shot!.

The criminal loving lefty liberals are somehow under the illusion that anybody under the age of 18 is totally incapable of committing a crime or murdering someone or possessing a firearm with the intent to use it so when they do get shot by the police, these people are outraged and call the police murderers when the police are simply trying to save their own lives.


Let this be a lesson…

Leftist want more rules for guns that only law abiding citizens follow. Leftist refuse to enforce existing gun laws and they refuse to hand out sentences for gun offenses. Like he said, the kid will get more attention than he has ever had and no punishment. Teenage kids can't own guns. It's already a law..ask Deb what she will do about this.
