That's when the gunplay started, the report said, with the son firing four or five shots at his dad.

Gunplay always sounds so lighthearted and whimsical.

I tell ya, I've fought tougher men
But I really can't remember when,
He kicked like a mule and he bit like a crocodile.
I heard him laugh and then I heard him cuss,
He went for his gun and I pulled mine first,
He stood there lookin' at me and I saw him smile.

I imagine the scene was well choreographed.

He's most likely pissed off at being named Artavious.

Artavious was determined to have his vengeance outside that liquor store. Or the next.

Now, 16-year-old Artavious B. Malone, of Wellington, is charged with attempted murder and illegal possession of a firearm, according to an arrest report from the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office.

/See? That's where you farked up dad. You gave him the wrong name. It was supposed to be Ardvarkious.

FTFA:The son told deputies that his dad smacked him in the face inside the liquor store, the report said. The son said he didn't fire the shots, but that he heard them while his father ran.

Why exactly was he running. How far ahead was this kid thinking?
 
2012-12-06 12:45:37 PM
"Archie said his relationship with Artavious has been hostile since he sent him to a juvenile center for his behavior a few years ago," Well at least dad realized his son had problems early.

Also since when are 16 year olds even allowed in the liquor store?

When I hear that phrase I always think of the houselights dimming and hushed voices.
"Shhhhh... The gun play's about to start."

He was thining of the past. Me thinks the kid had some demeaning experience in Juvy.

I saw an article somewhere the other day that said Johnny Cash didn't write "A Boy Named Sue" but it was actually written by Shel Silverstein, the comic strip artist for Playboy. I'll bet nobody else knew that.

Refreshing departure from the angelic child theme.

Give the dad a break with the name Artavious. Around 16 years ago there was a reprise of I, Claudius on PBS that he was probably really into.

Sometimes that encounter never happens and after 24 years of nothing someone spends every night crying themselves to sleep.

I think that by naming him Antivirus his father was trying to ease his sons entry into lucrative IT field.

I came to ask this question. Sadly, I strongly suspect that in certain neighborhoods which lack societal norms for behavior, proper role models and law enforcement, cash is the only form of ID requested in liquor stores.

So does "Artavious". Kind of like a character from a Christmas play.

I feel weird that no ones been in a Liquor Store before. You can buy gum and soda at a Liquor Store.

I find it strange that Mr. Malone is identified as the younger Malone's "biological dad".

And the cat's in the cradle and the silver spoon
Little boy blue and the man on the moon

You know we'll have a good time then
 
2012-12-06 02:58:29 PM
This is terribly relevant here, but it is related:

I happened upon an episode of one of Dr. Drew's many television shows the other day. Apparently, it's really common for adopted children and their biological parents to become sexually attracted to each other if/when they reunite later in life. The examples on the show were opposite sex, but this is what I thought when I read the headline.

I imagine you guys are from one of the 18 Alcoholic beverage control states. Florida isn't one. Here in California there's hardly a difference between a 7-11 and a liquor store. I've been going to them since I was a little kid. I just ran into a liquor store with my six year old last weekend to grab an apple juice.
