One of the posted article said the kid was pissed and wanted to run away.Or imagine his dad was and abusive prick and now he and Kyle enjoy warm days together on the river drift boating while talking about the lethal prowess of the Ruger 9mm carbine. Could go either way.
So much fail here.
1. Show up to pick up your kid and he's not there. (a) Call kids cell phone. (b) Call cops from your truck.
2. You all live in Texas. Someone tells you to leave their property either do it, or be prepared to fight to the death. They are well within their rights to use deadly force
3. If you grab a hold of someone's rifle, don't let the f***ing thing go and let the guy take 3 steps back. If he is able to point the business end at you, you lose.
Chad thought Kyle was playing. He wasn't. He should have taken the firearm from him, which I think he could have done. Never let an opponent grab hold of your long gun. They have leverage on their side. Chad never should have let the gun go.
In general, people reap what they sow. Kyle should have gone in the house and dialed 911. But he wanted to put a bully in his place. And legally, based on Texas law, it was his right to do so. Do I agree with it? In general yes, in this situation, no. I wouldn't shoot someone over words ( probably )
Kyle failed from the get go. He was trying to be knight in shining armor, fending off the evil ex husband. If you are in that spot, do yourself a favor and talk to the guy.
"Hey, I am dating your ex. I understand that you have visitation at 3:00 on Saturday, I want to respect that and will do what I can to make sure that happens. If the kid flakes or their is an issue, I will call you."
Chad failed by letting his ex, get under his skin. Yeah, you are mad, but 14 year olds are clueless. Kid was probably at a friends playing video games. Call him... " Hey buddy, I am on my way over to pick you up, you home?" "OK, you are at Johnny's house? How about I pick you up there?
There were many ways that this could have been avoided by all parties involved. The kids Mom knew he wasn't home, she could have called the guy. The truth is, I think they all wanted this to be a confrontation and had been preparing for it and building up to it for a long time. Bunch of losers.
Kyle sucks because he owns a Ruger PCC.
