Keep off the grass

I saw this on CNN this morning. Amazing...

Neighbor charged with shooting teen who walked on his grass

BATAVIA, Ohio (AP) -- A man who neighbors say was devoted to his meticulously kept lawn was charged with murder in the shooting of a 15-year-old boy who apparently walked across his yard.

Charles Martin called 911 on Sunday afternoon, saying calmly: "I just killed a kid."

Police, who released the call's contents, said Martin also told the dispatcher: "I've been harassed by him and his parents for five years. Today just blew it up."

Larry Mugrage, whose family lived next door, was shot in the chest with a shotgun. The high school freshman was pronounced dead at a hospital.

Martin, 66, allegedly told police he had several times had problems with neighbors walking on his lawn. He remained jailed without bond Monday. His jailers said no attorney was listed for him.

Neighbors said Martin lived alone quietly, often sitting in front of his one-story home with its neat lawn, well-trimmed shrubbery and flag pole with U.S. and Navy flags flying.

Joanne Ritchie, 46, said Mugrage was known as "a good kid." She said she always also considered Martin to be friendly.

Union Township is near Batavia, about 20 miles east of Cincinnati, Ohio.

Well now he can devote the rest of his life to picking up litter on other people's lawns.

What a tool. :-t

i think they should sentance him to be chained to his front porch while they slowly destroy his lawn...pluck out chunks of grass, let dogs urinate and defecate on it, import some grubs, plant weeds, over-fertalize it, etc

That's good. I say you chain him to the front porch while a bunch of college kids have a three-day kegger on his front lawn. ;-D

So it would be different if he stabbed him? Whatever tool the man used, the intention would be the same - outrageous behavior over trivial insult.

Well if he tried to stab him I'm sure a 15 year old could run away from a 66 year old man.

Anyways not to start a gun argument. I'm just not a fan. I've never even touched a gun so I'm not a fan.
