There’s a whole lot of pathetic from Sacramento, California in a story about two thugs, aged 14 and 17, who broke into an elderly widow’s home thinking it was fair game to steal from. The woman’s husband had died recently and she’s since been repeatedly burglarized.
Unbeknownst to our young, would-be cancer curing scientists, the elderly woman asked a relative to spend some time with her to guard against intruders. When our young hoodlums broke in this time, they found themselves getting perforated repeatedly.
Afterwards, when the media comes along to report on the incident, the girlfriend of the older thug is there protesting that her boy toy was killed. “It’s not right!” she cried.
From the story:
As FOX40 was news gathering, we spotted several people in tears, walking to the scene of the shooting. One of the girls was Ashleigh Davison, Crider’s girlfriend. She and her mother said he was a 17 year-old boy with no parents, had no home, and was in and out of Child Protective Services his entire life.
They believe the system had failed him.
“I don’t blame them for doing what they did,” Ashleigh’s mother, Tracy Webb said about the shooting. “It’s not right to break in and to burglarize people’s homes. No, it’s not. But at the same time, a life has been lost. A life has been taken. I’m sure he and a friend, Michael Sambrano, were doing what they thought they needed to do to survive.”
Tough cookies, honey. Low-information voters Ashleigh and her mother don’t believe in personal responsibility it would seem. “Doing what they needed to do to survive?” How about go to school and get a job? How about live the Ten Commandments? How about not being a scumbag?

Is he someone you would want living in your neighborhood?
