    Argument over car brand leads to Oregon teen shooting
    Associated Press - October 13, 2007 12:45 AM ET

    CHRISTMAS VALLEY, Ore. (AP) - An argument over whether Chevy or Ford is the best car led one teenager in the remote town of Christmas Valley to shoot another teen.

    The Lake County district attorney's office says that 19-year-old Beau Anderson faces assault and weapons charges after 18-year-old Scott Sprague of Silver Lake was shot on Oct. 2.

    Prosecutors say Sprague was visiting Anderson to borrow or share some car parts when they began arguing about whether Chevrolet or Ford was the better brand. That's when Anderson allegedly went to a camper, retrieved a .22-caliber handgun and opened fire at a car four or five times, hitting Sprague in the head.

    Sprague was treated and released from a Bend hospital, but authorities say he may lose sight in 1 of his eyes.

    Anyone with half a brain knows Chevy's are way better than Ford's. :biggrin1:

    But seriously, this is wrong, it never should have happend. The fact that a man is going to lose sight in his eye over such a stupid thing is beyond my comprehension. These were young men, and they had a heated argument that led to a shooting over car brands. :confused::mad::eek:

    If this generation is the future of America we are seriously screwed. :mad:

    I wouldn't say that America is breeding morons...but parents, the entertainment industry and the school systems are educating morons.

    The problem isn't so much the parents breeding them. It's that they don't raise, nurture, guide, and educate them. They put it in everybody elses hands and then when stuff like this happens, they can point the finger...

    "Gangster rap did this to my child."

    "The media always showing the 'good life' did this to my child."

    We parents need to rais our children, not Madison Avenue, not the record labels, not the movie studios, and definitely not other misguided people in the street.

    Take a hand and shape a mind. Is that too much to expect of a parent? I think not.

    Preach it Rev. Osiris! :cool:

    In addition parents need to stop trying to be their childs best friend and learn how to be their mother and father. When this happens then perhaps all this crazy nonsense will stop.

    Plenty of parents/kids are just fine. It's only a slice of society that does this kind of crap.

    Every century (heck, every decade and every year) has its morons.

    Such is the human race: some are dumb.

    True, but I think we have more child and teen murderers than ever before. I may be wrong, as I don't have the stats, but I don't think so.

    That's what you get when you let kids play with guns.

    There was an article in my paper last week - 51 children/teenagers have died this year in the UK from knife & gun wounds caused by other teenagers. It's so sad. :frown1:

    Several years back in Philadelphia a man shot another man over the selection of a piece in a Monopolu Game. Two guys wanted to be the car....

    ...Morons breed. It happens. Sex and sensibilities are not always equals.

    Everyone knows that the best cars and trucks on the road are Chrysler products.

    Case in point: those two morons were working on A CHEVY and A FORD. Had they had a Chrysler product, they wouldn't have been working on them as they don't break!! Thus, there would have been no shooting!!.

    As it stands, Osiris pretty much nailed it.

    Agreed.

    I always liked the expression "Ram tough".

    I don't know if these guys necessarily represent the future but they do seem to represent the argumentative, confrontational culture of disrespect that results in so much violence in the USA.

    You need a license to have a car, you need a license to have a gun, maybe you should have a license to have kids.

    Hahaha... so anyway. Yes, this is incredibly stupid. How a person can think that it's okay to shoot another over a disagreement of cars is beyond me. Anger management, anyone?
