Here’s a a narrative for you, via Kenny Ocker at the News Tribune:
According to court documents:
The teenager set up a drug deal on Facebook with a friend. His friend met the dealer, who showed him the marijuana he wanted. The friend grabbed the bag and ran.
The dealer and the passenger from his car chased the friend about 50 yards before the teenager — wearing a mask and showing a handgun — showed up and asked, “What’s up?”
The dealer and passenger then ran toward their car.
The teenager went to put the gun back into his pants and the weapon fired a bullet through his leg.
In a state where marijuana is legal, this makes exactly no sense. Honestly, you know that bit about how one needs to live, instead of merely exist? Some days it seems like living isn’t enough; it’s like people need to live in an action movie.
Or a one-star farce.
Pick your poison.
