Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, August 14, 2014

A Loudoun County, Virginia, sheriff's deputy shot his 16-year-old daughter early Tuesday morning, mistaking her for an intruder. The man then crashed his vehicle attempting to rush the teen to a local hospital. After a security system alerted Deputy Easton McDonald to a possible intrusion, the man heard a noise in the garage, retrieved his gun and fired it as he was approached. "The daughter had snuck out hours earlier that morning, and was attempting to sneak back into the home," said Frederick County Captain Donnie Lang. Tie girl is being treated for her injuries.

It's disgusting how excited you get when a white person gets gunned down with a legal weapon, but don't give a crap about gang violence using illegal weapons.

But I guess that's the crux of the problem; white vs black.

"A Loudoun County, Virginia, sheriff's deputy shot his 16-year-old daughter early Tuesday morning, mistaking her for an intruder. The man then crashed his vehicle attempting to rush the teen to a local hospital."

So he shot blindly into the dark in his own home when members of his family were unaccounted for and then crashed his car trying to get his daughter to the hospital.

Sounds like he has a level head and nerves of steel. Just the kind of guy we need responding to emergency situations.

Sounds to me like a moron who violated one of the first rules you're supposed to learn about firearms: Confirm your target BEFORE squeezing the trigger.

Sounds like the guy is a crack shot. I mean he did hit her even though he couldn't see her.

Loudoun County = West Virginia, near to RE agents and civilized folk...

Cops are like James West: shoot first, then shoot some more - maybe, eventually, get around to a question.

The very first rule of shooting is: Identify your target.

Whether hunting or home defense, if you can't identify your target, you don't shoot. Period.

Was the father white and the daughter black? or the other way around? You seem to know every detail about every incident involving some law enforcement agent. It's miraculous!

She was wearing a hoodie and carrying the ingredients needed to make 'purple drank'. So there's that.

When she recovers from the gunshot and car crash she's going to be in BIG trouble.

That'll teach her. I bet she won't sneak out again.

Truth is, if he didn't own a gun for home security his daughter would not have been shot. Truth.

I thought that too. She'll be saying, "Look, Dad, no lectures, all right? At least I didn't shoot anybody or crash the car. Jeez!"

Um, Mod, THE GUY IS A COP. I'm pretty sure there was going to be a gun in the house regardless of how the gun laws read.

He was just exercising his second amendment rights. Standing his ground don't ya know. Move on, nothing to see or learn here.

It's amazing you can't differentiate between gang and criminal violence and a man shooting his own daughter.

Maybe you should become a Loudon County cop.

Criminals shooting each other is exactly the same as government agents shooting unarmed civilians. As long as black gang members are shooting each other, no other shootings should be commented upon. Why don't you understand that?
