A New Orleans teen who was shot in the head during an alleged attempted burglary last year was busted in another robbery just blocks away from the near-fatal shooting, authorities said.So, let me get this straight. Last July, at the tender age of 14, this dunderhead gets himself shot in the head because he's trying to break into a house at 2 in the morning. He was in a coma, spent what I would imagine would be a good amount of time in the hospital, and managed to survive a gunshot wound to the head.
Marshall Coulter, 15, was arrested Friday after he was caught skulking around two homes in the city's Marigny district and used a hidden key to break into one of them, authorities said.
And then he just goes right back to trying to break into houses? Just ain't that bright, are you, son?
I wonder, too, how many times the phrase "He was a good boy" or some variant thereof was used last July when he was shot? I wonder how many times we were treated to tearful admonitions from relatives about how he didn't deserve to get shot, that he made a simple mistake and went to the wrong house.
I wonder how many times "Trayvon" was used, or "Stand your ground" or some variant there?
Do we get apologies from the bleeding hearts (That's rhetorical; we all know that being "progressive" means never having to own your mistakes)? I wonder if the man who was forced to shoot this SOB last year gets an apology from the people that besmirched him when it happened?
I won't hold my breath waiting for the apologies, mind you...
That is all.
