Man Kills his son Over a Missing Videogame

Have you read the news lately? Basically, a family argument got nasty, and a father ended up shooting his son.

The long story: In Houston, Texas, this past Sunday at about 4:15 in the morning, a forty-year-old man, Ofelio Antonio Otero, was drunk and pretty angry.
He was having an argument over a missing videogame with his wife, when his son joined in (perhaps he borrowed it). Things got hairy when the father pulled out a gun and started loading it. The 17-year-old boy, Ignacio A. Otero, tried to knock the gun out of his dad’s hand and after apparently failing to do so, turned away and tried to run. The father pointed his gun and fired, the bullet striking his son in the back of the neck, killing him.
As his son lay there, the man fled the scene and continued on for a couple of miles to an apartment building, which was followed with a few hours of sit, wait, and talk with Dallas SWAT. He eventually surrendered, turning himself in before noon the same day.


Now a murder charge will be added to Otero’s existing criminal record, a DWI charge. His bail is set at $100,000. No info on what the missing video game was in the first place, and whether it was worth killing over.

To the media: it isn’t just kids who play games that kill people, adults do to. rolleyes

But I think that the alcohol had a lot to do with it. I mean, if he wasn’t drunk, would he really have gotten into an argument at that time in the morning over something so trivial, if he were sober?

I think it’s disgraceful in any case, and he deserves whatever the hell he gets.

What does AAA stand for?

It's not an abbreviation of anything. It just means the best of the best...
