We have quite a few grown up difficult child's living in my area. Must be something in the water here. Anyway, we found out today that a guy who lived on our road who was about 25 was murdered last night. This guy was a total difficult child. I seriously doubt any mental problems but behavior issues out the wazoo dating back to early teen years. Definite issues with authority and drugs, crime, you name it. He has been busted a few times for felony possession with intent to distribute of cocaine and pot...etc. Well last yesterday he was involved in some sort of dog fighting episode that went bad. We can all assume drugs were involved too. They always are. An argument ensued and a fight broke out. The other guy pulled a gun and shot this guy in the back 3 times and then dragged him back to his house and dumped him in his front yard. Nice huh? The local difficult child's are all in an uproar. They dont seem to quite understand this is what happens when you live this way. Makes me sad but this is the future of so many of the young men that live around me. I have watched the news recently and seen so many stories from right in my area of stories just like this. And I dont live in some inner city area. I am in rural North Carolina. Its horrible.
