This is a needless tragedy. A 17-year-old boy is dead, killed by an angry father. We will watch with great interest while the State of Texas decides how to mete justice in this case.

This article has so few details. It’s hard to know whether the boy was a guest of the girl or was he an intruder since the girl changed her story? Did the boy attack/lunge at the father? Was the kid apologetic and did the father decide to shoot him because he was “messing around” consensually with his daughter?
Or did the girl lie and say she didn’t know him, then daddy freaks and clips him, then daughter freaks and admits she knows him?

Vigilante justice; the false pride of extreme religious fundamentalism; a mental illness by the father? It could be anything but a young life is immediately snuffed
out amidst the frenzy of morality and shame.

A youthful mistake that ends up with the boy paying the ultimate price.
May he rest in peace.

It would seem to me that the problem in this story has nothing to do with teenagers or sex or the registry, but gun control in this country or lack thereof. Adding the letters TX to this headline was almost unnecessary as I would have bet money on this having happened in Texas or Florida.
