    It's real. It was in NC. A bunch of people complained to the police but were promptly informed that it happened in the county not the city no laws were broken. Had he lived within city limits he would have been in trouble for discharging a firearm within city limits.

    Well...as I have explained before there is no way that I can get videos to work and there is no way for me to watch. Just got to see a very short part of it on T.V. and I was not really watching the boob tube just caught it a few seconds into the clip. I did send it to family and friends but later learned that most had already seen it. I did think it was funny with the part that I saw. I have felt some of those frustrating moments while bring up the kids. And I said to myself this guy has used it to make a funny video.

    I don't understand the reference to the DA's instructions while on GJ.

    Per the DA's instruction on debating a true bill of indictment on a charge of domestic violence...discharging a firearm in the home or on the property could be considered in forwarding the charge to the district court, and did with few exceptions.

    Have you sat on a GJ? Have you made arguements contrary to the consensus of the other members?

    What took place in that video would lead most GJ members to foward a charge of assault to the DC.

    Simple assualt is very easy to establish.

    He implied a threat of violence, then carried it out.

    True bill. Now it's up to the DC to decide.

    This guy is an idiot.
    Irresponsible use of a firearm and poor parenting.

    What is the take away lesson for the kid??
    Do what I say or I will destroy your belongings??

    Some may think this is cute, but it is wrong on several levels.

    I did not see him imply a threat of violence, he took his property away from his kid and shot it(nothing implied he did it). I have shot at TV's, old cars etc for target practice no threat of violence when i did it. He never threatened his kid with harm, just his property. He simply was an idiot and filmed it. The kid was beyond wrong and maybe deserved some punishment long before this happened.

    And yes JD I am jst giving you a hard time, what he did was stupid, but then again what the kid did was outright blatant disrespect and stupid as well. Stupid is as stupid does I guess. This is a lose lose for him and his kid in the end. Relationships between kids and parents often become strained, and usually it never gets fixed. One day they will both regret what they did.

    This is what is wrong with our country. People thinking they know what is best for others. I have been on the GJ I have been foreman of the GJ and I do not agree with any thing you said.

    I wasn't trying to imply he should be true billed, not at all. My time on the grand jury just made me realize how quickly things get out of hand and get violent. What I was trying to say is the man's temper scares me. He just seems like a ticking time bomb to me.
