A simple story

From The Shreveport Times:

A 4-year-old boy, trying to protect his mother, stabbed his mother's boyfriend in the head with a knife while the two adults were in an altercation, Alexandria Police reported.

Police were summoned to a Chester Street home about 7 p.m. Tuesday by the mother, who said her 4-year-old son had attacked her boyfriend to make him release her.

The boyfriend was transported to Rapides Regional Medical Center for treatment of two wounds to his head, police reported.

According to the police report, the series of events began when the 28-year-old mother and her 40-year-old, live-in boyfriend started an oral argument that escalated into a physical confrontation.
The woman told police that her boyfriend was restraining her on the bed, preventing her from getting up, when her son came into the room from behind them and swung a knife he was holding, striking the boyfriend in the head.

The police report said the boyfriend "walked out of the bedroom and collapsed in the kitchen. A trail of blood was from the bedroom to the kitchen."

Although heavy bleeding made the injuries look severe, a police spokesman said the wounds were not life-threatening.

There were no charges filed in the initial investigation. The knife was taken by police as evidence.

You don't have to be a clinical psychologist to read between the lines here. Unattractive woman with no self esteem hooks up with an older dirtbag who knocks her around. Little boy obeys his genetic programming to protect the woman in his life and uses the most effective weapon at his disposal to take out the bad guy. Dirtbag sees his own blood and passes out like the wussy he is.

In a few years I'd be happy to teach the lad to shoot.
