SAD: 4 Year Old Boy Kills His Own Father......

Sup Travellers?! It's sad in any case to hear about the death of someone but it's especially sad to hear that the death was by the hands of a 4 year old. Now, it's obvious that most 4 year olds won't pull a gun on someone and spitefully shoot them. So blame cannot be attached to a 4 year old, but the blame must be pinned on someone. Read on to get more details.


A 35-year-old Army Special Forces veteran and former Green Beret named Justin Stanfield Thomas was shot dead on Friday by his 4-year-old, who police say found an unsecured gun in the living room of the home in Prescott Valley, Arizona. The home was not Justin's but he was simply visiting a friend who was also a veteran. Police believe the homeowner wasn't expecting the visit, which may explain why the gun was present.

A police department rep says the investigation into the accident will continue this week, with police looking to determine how much time passed between their arrival and the shooting. Once they establish how long the homeowner may have had to deal with the gun, prosecutors will decide whether to charge him with criminal negligence, reports the Arizona Republic. According to the neighbor, it wasn't very long: "Apparently when Justin and his little boy showed up, within minutes, the little boy found the gun and said, 'hey, daddy, what's this?' and it went off," he tells AZFamily.com.

This is has been happening a lot lately. This is not the first time that I wrote about a young kid shooting someone with a gun. You would think that each time it happened people would become more aware and start hiding away their guns when kids visit. However, one must take into consideration that it was a surprise visit and the guy probably forgot about the gun. But that just justifies negligence. Whatever happens, it doesn't change the fact that my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
