Minor Thoughts from me to you

Murder Most Foul

Sometimes it's possible to take lawn care a bit too seriously:

A man who neighbors say was devoted to his meticulously kept lawn was charged with murder in the shooting of a 15-year-old boy who apparently walked across his yard.

Charles Martin called 911 on Sunday afternoon, saying calmly: "I just killed a kid."

Police, who released the call's contents, said Martin also told the dispatcher: "I've been harassed by him and his parents for five years. Today just blew it up.

Of course:

Joanne Ritchie, 46, said [the boy] was known as "a good kid," but she always also considered Martin to be friendly.

Everyone is friendly, until they point a shotgun in your direction.
