I saw another one of these teen girl fights on my Facebook feed this morning. It was disgusting. Very, very violent. At least six kids recorded the incident on their cell phones, which went on for at least three minutes. Anyone with the slightest hint of morality would have intervened at the start, separating the combatants without resorting to firearms. That said, they were girls. What would you do if you saw man-sized teenage boys beating the bejesus out of each other? Same thing, I’d imagine. Until and unless that didn’t work. And what if one participant was defenseless being beaten to death? Hard to say. But one thing’s for sure . . .
Viridiana Alvarez was not looking at that situation. She made the wrong choice.
A mother pulled a gun on a female student after the student got into a fight with her daughter, according to the Pasadena Independent School District.
PISD said the two students were fighting at a park across the street from Pasadena High School Tuesday when Viridiana Alvarez took out a gun. Pasadena ISD police broke up the fight before anyone was seriously injured.
Hours after the fight, cellphone video and pictures surfaced of the altercation that appeared to show Alvarez pointing a gun at the teen’s head. Alvarez was arrested and charged with aggravated assault.
According to click2houston.com, Ms. Alvarez explained her actions thus:
During her first appearance in court Alvarez, 33, told the judge that she wasn’t planning to shoot the girl with the pistol, only “scare her.” Alvarez’s family told KPRC2 that the gun was not loaded.
Oh, so that’s alright then? No. No it isn’t. While I disagree with members of our Armed Intelligentsia who say you should only clear leather if you intend to shoot, I get their point. You?
