He is probably that type neighbor though that it's impossible not to take a couple steps on his lawn every time time you pass by it.
How is it impossible to not step on someone's lawn?
More like being lazy and/or not having a good enough upbringing to me. Granted, I'm judging this kid off of one story, but with the level of rudeness he displayed, I think it fits.
I don't know how many times this occurred but my take on the article was that the kid walked through it once on his way to a friend's and the guy gave him a hard time over it. When he came back through it on his way home, the man shot him. Judging by how much the man overreacted the 2nd time the kid came through, I'm guessing he was probably a real jerk about it when he first confronted the kid rather than just politely asking him if he could go around his lawn next time. When I was a teenager, I probably would've come back through his lawn too if he had been a real jerk about it the first time I passed through.
I'm just guessing how this all happened though. It's possible that the kid walked through his lawn many times and the man was polite about it at first before it escalated.
