“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” is good advice from inventor and statesman, Benjamin Franklin. But thinking that far ahead probably isn’t the stock in trade of most drug dealers. If it had been, Shane Davidson might have avoided being the victim of an early morning attack when Nathan Conn, entered his residence and administered a .22 double tap to the back of his head with a stolen pistol . . .
That’s not the wake up call he was likely expecting as he snoozed in the small, quiet Pennsylvania town of Oil City. But it’s also can’t be too surprising when you’re are a drug trafficker who doesn’t keep his customers satisfied.
Against all odds, Davidson’s still alive, though in critical condition. According to thederrick.com, Conn’s family is trying to find a lawyer besides the court-appointed one that was assigned him.
“I just want to be able to be able to give my son a fair chance,” said Conn’s father, Leonard Conn, following the continuation.
Leonard Conn said he believes his son’s actions were prompted by drug use and said his son was under the influence of prescription drugs at the time of the attack.
Aunt Vicky has Nathan’s back, too.
“Vicky Conn said her nephew was not himself when he allegedly committed the alleged crime.
“He’s a gentle boy,” she said. “Believe it or not, he really is a gentle boy.”
Moral of the story: Avoid stupid people doing stupid things – especially drug dealers. And addicts.
