Has the world gone mad?

Okay, this stuff is ridiculous!

Life term for killing teen who walked on lawn

Prosecutors alleged Martin had confronted the teen earlier in the day when he walked into Martin's yard on his way to a friend's house, then loaded his .410-gauge shotgun and waited more than three hours for him to return.
When the boy stepped on the lawn again, Martin fired at him twice, according to testimony. He then called police, telling a dispatcher: "I just killed a kid."


Officials: Fisherman shoots away competition

GREENSBORO, Georgia - An 86-year-old Georgia man did not want anyone getting too close to his fishing lines, so he took a few shots at a pair of fishermen competing at a tournament, authorities said. One of them was hit in the arm.

John Burke Yearwood was jailed on a charge of aggravated assault and later released on bond.
