    Dad to be jailed 30 days for killing son while hunting

    [b][u][size=13pt]Dad to be jailed 30 days for killing son while hunting

    The elder Klaseus told authorities he thought his son was a turkey. His son, who was dressed in full camouflage, had followed him after being told to stay put as his father circled a field to approach some turkeys. Klaseus heard something snap near him, saw a figure and shot, killing his son.

    HOLY SHIT!!!

    Yeah... why would you just turn and shoot? it makes absolutely no sense. when hunting turkeys especially you must be pretty accurate. (hunting with a bow is more fun BTW, the Guiletine is a great arrow to use).

    This guy should be put away longer then 30 days for just being stupid. Although he is going to live with knowing he murdered his own son... that has to haunt him day and night.

    That is a ridiculously low sentence. The only consolation is that he still has to live with himself and what he did for the rest of his life and at some point will have to answer to a higher power.

    How is justice served by putting this guy away for a long time?
    How does that help his family?
    He tragically fucked up as awfully as he could possibly fuck up.
    But he's not a criminal.
    As you said, he's going to spend the rest of his life paying for his stupidity.
    That's a life sentence in a much worse prison.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    Court records show that Klaseus had alcohol and marijuana in his system at the time. He had a blood-alcohol-concentration of 0.06 percent at the scene. Several partly empty beer packs and a marijuana pipe were found in his truck.
    You know what.
    Fuck him.
    My heart pours out the that boy's mother and the rest of his family, but I have absolutely no sympathy for the father.
    The fact that an 8 year old child had to lose his life because his father is a worthless piece of shit is unforgivable.

    It is one thing to make a mistake.
    It is another thing entirely to consciously make a decision that puts your children in danger.
    Fuck him.

    He'll commit suicide shortly after being released from jail... I don't know how he could live with this.

    Why did he shoot before identifying the target?
    Was he afraid the speedy turkey would get away, or even worse, that it would attack him?


    I m like a Ja Rule poster, cause I'm off the wall.

    How sad.

    Lets look at what went wrong here....

    a.
    Booze, Drugs, Guns.
    b.
    Leaving a 8 year old alone in the woods.
    c.
    Not identifying your target.
    d. No blaze orange on the youngster.

    This type of stuff gives good hunters bad reputations.

    I have been bringing Wildman hunting with me since he was 3.
    He was never left alone until he had passed a hunters safety course and was a licensed hunter (age 13) and when that happened he was still within eye sight of me.
    Additionally, even though turkey's have the best eyesight and can see the blaze orange, it is highly recommended that you wear at least a bit of blaze (especially youngsters).

    Again, all very sad.
    Especially for the family that lost a cherished loved one over someones stupidity.
    :'(
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    Insert Cheney joke here.
    Atleast this guy was drunk and stoned, what was Cheney's excuse?
