Things Get Ugly In Texas

Texas .......... again, A 7-year-old boy Donald Coffey Jr was shot dead in the head by a couple who thought he and three other people were trespassing on their property

Gayle Muhs who is allegedly a man named Gayle and his sister and wife Sheila Muhs who is also allegedly a man both 45, were charged with second-degree felony counts of aggravated assault in the shootings .

Authorities said the couple fired after they mistakenly thought the group was trespassing on their property.

The area includes a dirt road, trees and overgrown brush and it isn't uncommon for people to go off-roading there.

A sign in front of the suspects' home reads: "Trespassers will be shot. Survivers will be re- shot!! Smile I will." OBB News doubts that either have very good smiles. Another sign said, "Keep incest in the family, smile I will."

Sheila Muhs fired a 12-gauge shotgun once, then handed it to her husband, who also fired once
then Sheila Muhs looked up the number and called 911 and told the dispatcher: "They're out here tearing up the levee, so I shot them but good."

The levee was dry and full of good old boys drinking whiskey and eating rye bread sandwiches from Subway and the area belonged to the subdivision and was not private property.

The unarmed victims did not do anything threatening toward the Muhs.

Donald Coffey Sr. suffered a pellet wound in his right shoulder and his daughter, Destiny, suffered a wound to the elbow. The family friend, 30-year-old Patrick Cammack, was in serious condition Saturday with a head wound.

Texans - who can explain no less apologize for their ways with guns (peni of course) I notice mug shots of Hollywood offenders look very posed and polished - poor Texans, they have bad lighting, no time for grooming, but as for shooting anything/one that's par. When they hear a truck backfiring they all reach for their hidden weapons. "Have guns, will use" says I. That's what worries me about ICBMs.

Is it okay to shoot kids in Texas? Why have they not gone to trial? I see no articles saying they have.

I get the impression Texas is wary of trying rednecks for using their sacred guns.
