    Apparently Jr. takes right after Sr.
    Jr. has quite a record, so I guess that makes him the typical THUG while shooting an 11-year old child qualifies him as a less-than-human animal. Jr. has felony Breaking and Entering, Larceny, Drug Possession, DWI, and Stolen Goods Possession convictions… while Sr. has similar convictions AND THEN SOME!
