Stupidity On a Grand Scale

Apparently, there are more important things in life than raising a child with a strong moral, which gang should that child "claim" when they learn to walk and shoot.

I was unsure of the seriousness of the article when I saw the headline but, remarkably, it was a real story. A couple was actually fighting over which gang their child would eventually join. The "father" is a member of the "Westside Ballers," while the alleged mother is a member of the "Crips." How quaint.

The father ended up storming into the mother's place of employment and causing a scene (and some damage to property) and was later arrested. I'm still wondering what the proper etiquette is for rival gang arguments, which caliber of weapon is most appropriate, etc.

I've heard it said in the past that we should require licensing in order to breed; these two people are a strong argument in favor of that idea. Perhaps we'll luck out, and these two will manage to get themselves added to the short list for the Darwin Awards before they can breed any more.
