I Guess Stereotypes Exist for a Reason

After reading this story I’ve come to the conclusion that some stereotypes exist for a reason. The stereotype in question? People in the south get into feuds over the damnedest things:

Associated Press news agency said Jerry Blasingame, 60, has been charged with assault for shooting Terry Tehnet, 52, with a shotgun.

Mr Tehnet was angry because he thought Mr Blasingame’s dog had defecated on his lawn, in a rural part of the state.

Mr Tehnet, whose injuries are not life-threatening, may also be charged.

Yes these two got into a firefight over one’s dog shitting on the other’s property. And it happened in Mississippi. Seriously guys you’re not helping the image of the South, United States, or gun owners. Next time listen to the advice of your local Sheriff:

Washington County Chief Deputy Sheriff Billy Barber said: “Homeowners and property owners need to respect each other’s property… If a dog did that in your yard, call the law. Don’t take matters into your own hands.”
