So, a group of teenagers were hanging out at one of the kids’ grandmother’s house in Alabama. The house was unoccupied, so hey, fun times ahead. There were about eight of them hanging out.
Then a few of the teenagers got themselves an idea, and as we know, every idea an American teenager has had is a bad one.
They get the idea to cut power to the house and pretend to be committing a home invasion. Then Jesse Rainey, 15, gets inside the house and startles his unnamed buddy, who had a .38 caliber hand gun and shot his friend in the head.
…okay, a couple of things. First of all — this idea is dumb. Dumb dumb dumb. There’ve already been stories about someone mistaking their child or friend for an intruder and shooting him dead. Plenty of them. So many.
Secondly — you’ve got seven friends over at a house and when odd things happen your first inclination is to grab a loaded weapon? What kind of idiot are you?
Oh, yeah – there are eight of you. Who the hell do you think is going to invade your home when there are eight rambunctious teenagers who apparently have guns in the house?
That’s it. No more guns. Unload them and put them in the box. You’re on gun time out.
Anyway. The teenager was so out in the middle of nowhere that the ambulance had trouble finding the house. The boys took their injured friend to a nearby convenience store where the Sheriff’s deputy and ambulance picked him up.
