There's stupid and then really stupid

MILWAUKEE - A prank turns to terror on Milwaukee's north side.

It happened when a 21-year-old man thought it would be funny to scare his mother when she got home from shopping Thursday night.

He put on a ski mask, confronted her behind their home and pretended to rob her.

That's when she pulled out a .357 revolver and fired several times. Her son was hit at least twice by bullets, one of them to the groin.

He is in the hospital this morning, but there is no word on his condition.

Officials say they discovered two guns on the scene of the shooting in the 3700 block of N. 13th Street.

From FARK.

The story is horribly written, but then it is radio.
"A prank turns to terror." Barf.


  1. I always hoped something like this would happen to those people who do this for television. It's horrible she shot her own son,and I hope he lives. Maybe this will serve as example to other pranksters about what is appropriate and what is not.

  2. Yes. The funniest home video stuff of people scaring other people, especially parents frightening their own children. People: Don't scare your own kids! What's wrong with you? (Or anybody else's kids. Or other people. But especially your own children.) I've many times mentioned to Mom when people pop out of boxes: If anybody ever plans on doing that to me, advise the danger of the action, and advise of consequences.
