    Man shoots daughter over baby gate argument

    What do you even say about something like this? Tragic? Thoughts and prayers? This man sailed through a pretty long life with no problems with the law, no mental health issues (that were diagnosed anyway), and one day just decides he's going to kill his daughter, because of an argument regarding a baby gate for his grandchild. It's well beyond my ability to wrap my brain around this one, let alone try to sum up the level of horrific insanity of the situation.

    Stories like this is one of the reasons my wife and I
    stopped watching the news.
    There is nothing the news media won't exploit.
    The more insane the better. The more gory the better.
    The only reason the media promotes these stories is for shock value.
    They are not educational, they don't make us safer, they aren't even
    interesting. They are little slices of the worst part of society gaily
    shoved in our face by the media. The only beneficiary is the media
    because for some reason people just seem to love this tripe.
    It's verbal pornography and nothing more.

    Had to be some organic brain malfunction to cause that to happen. Just crazy and sad. The fact that he called the ex-wife leads me to believe that their relationship had something to do with it also. Revenge against her?
    “…democratic socialism, the great utopia of the last few generations, is not only unachievable but that to strive for it produces something utterly different – the very destruction of freedom itself. As has been aptly said: ‘What has always made the state a hell on earth has been precisely that man has tried to make it his heaven.'” F.A. Hayek

    It wasn't about the gate, never is in a case like this. The gate thing was just an excuse, not a reason. Like Rb said......an' I know my credibility is gonna' take a terrible beatin' for quotin' ím, "There is nothing the news media won't exploit". It's like if a cop shoots a criminal that's been firing at him from a doorway, the headlines would read "cop shoots man just for blocking doorway". Truth and facts just aren't sensational enough.

    What's the old saying in the press room?.... "If it bleeds, it leads." Vultures, snakes, and weasels, the lot of them. And they (and others) get righteously indignant when they are (rightfully) called fake news. Their credibility and respect is right up there with Congress.

    Makes you wonder how many buttons the daughter. or any other family members, pushed before the "detonate" button in this situation was pushed.
    To quote Clint Eastwood: "Sometime a man has just got to no his limitations".
    I think this grandpa found them and past them.

    Like others, I do not think that the baby gate was sole the reason for the shooting. I think that they'll find that there was a long history of conflict between the two and that the baby gate was just the last in a long line of things and the thing that pushed him over the edge.

    Sad, sad story.

    Unfortuneatly, families don't always get along. My two best friends are alienated from their sons, I am from my oldest son, although I have made efforts to reconcile our relationship, and will continue to. This seems to be a single daughter who moved home with her father and a grand child. Maybe the daughter was out all night leaving grand dad with a crying grand kid and he didn't get any sleep...who knows. Maybe dad was out of whiskey and it was Sunday and he couldn't get any more and was on edge. Not making any excuses for gramps at all. Curious if there is more to the story.
