Sup Travellers?! Road rage is a hell of a thing but a 26 year-old New Orleans man took road rage to a whole new level on Saturday. According to reports from Times-Picayune and WDSU, David Jackson Sr. had a bout of road rage while driving and allegedly fired three or four shots into a Chevrolet pickup truck, grazing a 10-year-old boy in the face.

The incident started on the I-10 near New Orleans when Jackson flung a cigarette out the window of his Acura while traveling with his two sons and their mother. A 50 year old who was travelling with his girlfriend's son in a Chevy then "cuts off the man".  The two drivers kept cutting each other off until Jackson opened fire from the middle lane, according to a police report.

After the 10 year old got shot, the 50 year old Chevy driver followed after the shooter and rammed into him all the way to an intersection where police made their arrest.  

"I already knew my son had been shot, there was no way I was letting him go," the Chevy driver said, according to the sergeant.

Jackson is already a convicted felon and was on parole for possessing a firearm and distributing drugs. He has now been charged for attempted second degree murder and possession of 19 grams of crack cocaine with intent to distribute. The boy went into surgery to have bullet fragments removed from his sinus cavity, and may have to undergo plastic surgery.

I don't think the world's going to be swooning over this convicted felon anytime soon. No matter how good looking you are, some crimes just can't be forgiven. Let's also consider the fact that he's a father but his two children were in the car with him when he committed the crime. But that's none of my business. Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
