Fred Fleener III, to Fred Fleener IV: "Son, I brought you into this world, I can take you out, and make another one that looks just like you!"
Dad gets probation for killing son in argument over biscuits and gravy
Then he did. Ok, I might have made up that quote, er, stole it from Bill Cosby, or his dad, I am a bit unclear about which.
"A father who told police that he shot his own son dead during an argument over biscuits and gravy because his child was a 'bully' and he 'snapped' has been given a probationary sentence.
F, 22, on November 14, 2015, at their home in Indianapolis, Indiana, after the younger Fleener became angry at his father for not bringing him enough breakfast.
On Tuesday he was sentenced to two years of probation after admitting voluntary manslaughter as part of a plea deal, the Indy Star reported."
I remember how during the early 70s the states were decriminalizing all kinds of laws, that lead to the spectacular violent crime wave of the 1990s! However, my dad is dead, so I don't really have anything negative to say about decriminalizing father initiated filicide.
My only question is how the hell is this not Florida Man? Biscuits, and gravy, and murder, and a sentence of only probation that has Florida Man written all over it!
