https://wgntv.com/2019/03/07/court-docs-11-year-old-shot-trooper-dad-over-video-games-threatened-more-if-he-didnt-get-them-back/ It's short but this shit is fucked straight up. According to court documents obtained by WSBT, the state trooper’s son devised a plan to shoot his dad with his service gun while he was at school that day because he “was done with all of that” and “wanted it to end.” The boy allegedly told investigators after the shooting if he didn’t get his video games, there would be “a part two,” and said he wanted to shoot his dad in the head but couldn’t because of the way he was laying down. He also said he tested the Taser on the family’s dog before the shooting, according to authorities. The 11-year-old is now facing charges of attempted murder in juvenile court. His next court date is set for April 10th.
Big brain plan you had there kid you aren't ever getting your games back now. Seriously though what the fuck. The dad is one lucky duck to have just so happened to roll over.
That's messed up. Hopefully the guy recovers with no lasting damage. Kid's gonna need some serious mental help.
The trooper said he keeps his gun locked in his car, so his kids wouldn’t have access to it. The boy allegedly said he went to his dad’s car three different times to look for the gun. When he finally got it, he took the weapon into his parents’ room where they were sleeping. Wonder if this would've happened if he kept the gun in a safe.
Man I feel like there's more to this story than an 11 year old just losing his shit randomly over video games.

He also said he tested the Taser on the family’s dog before the shooting, according to authorities. What a nice kid
as always what a nice case for media to say video games are bad and cause violence
A nice way for the MSM to make fiery headline and the politicians to bring out the scapegoat again. Even though some seriously fucked up shit must have been going on with this kids upbringing if he was abusing the family dog and shot his dad. Either that or some grade-A psychopathy. But a kid usually doesn't go all Michael Myers in a peachy home.
Yeah, that's sociopath stuff. Just no empathy for any other living creature. It wasn't video games that did this to him.
Based on the video linked in the article, it was not just any car but his police car, and doing some research it seems many departments in Indiana do have a "take home car" policy. I think it makes sense for a police officer to keep his firearm in his police car for when he's off-duty and may need to respond to a call.
There's a lot of context missing to make judgements on how the kid ended up down this path but I can't help but think how fucked it must feel knowing your own kid attempted to kill you like that. Like, sitting there thinking "this kid tried to murder me. My kid." How do you even process that?
Wouldn't blame gun, Kid probably would've stabbed Dad instead considering that he didn't have any second thoughts about shooting him or testing taser on dog either.
I am curious how the kid got into the car. It just says "the trooper keeps the gun in the locked car; the kid got into the car."
Sounds like a psychopath in the making tbh
Found the keys?
Tbh that kid needs to be removed from that dog. Dog doesn't deserve living with a fucking psychopath.
When he finally got it, court documents say he took the weapon into his parents’ room where they were sleeping. He waited “about 10 minutes” until his dad rolled over and was facing away from the door, and then he fired one shot into his backside. Imagine waiting in silence for 10 minutes watching your sleeping father until he rolled over so you could shoot him.
I can't even imagine what the dad must be feeling towards his son. All that love and work (I assume) just to be shot in the back over fucking confiscated video games. What a scumbag kid. And the kid wants to go in for more, seriously what the fuck. What do you even do as a parent at that point?
I would honestly be pushing for a prison sentence. Anything to get the child away from me. You literally can't even trust that your child isn't going to murder you in your sleep after torturing the family dog. What the fuck do you do? You can't just lock the child in their room for the rest of their life. (Obviously an 11-year-old is not going to prison, but I really don't think it's unreasonable for a parent to say "yeah we can't trust this dude not to kill us so he has to go")
Statistically, since the father is a cop, he was likely abusive to the kid. That also explains why the kid is mentally unwell.
Quite normal in Indiana. Unless you are bunking at one of the State police stations, or live within 5min of a station, most state troopers take the cruiser home and park it outside. So messed up for a kid to do that and have a follow up plan. There's some serious things wrong going on within the family it sounds like. Kid needs counseling and to be watched for a bit.
Please source your statement that 50%+ of police officers are child abusers, thanks.
Statistically, you're talking out of your ass. Start citing.
That's a huge stretch there...
Don't quote me but i did read a stat something like 40% increased domestic violence in police households over the nat'l average. and really, don't quote me check it out yourself, i could be wrong. Really irrelevant to this particular case though.
Shit dude with how fucked up this kid sounds, even with a prison sentence I would be worried about the child finding and coming to kill his dad after getting released. Kid needs to be put away for a long time in a controlled environment until he has a revelation of some sort or something.
Yeah I was gonna comment about gun safes. As good of an idea as gun safes are generally, it feels like this kid would've just found the keys for that instead.
I mean, you don't really expect your kid to steal your gun so he can shoot you in the sleep.
That's of course true.
