In Galveston County, Texas, a sixteen year old boy shot his dad in the head after the boy returned home with food the father hadn't ordered. The boy's mom called the police. When they arrived, they told the boy to drop the gun. Instead, he shot himself in the head. Both the boy an his father died today after being hospitilized for two days. http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/front/6120991.html

There is something wrong with the way this world goes. There is lot of similar unbelievable sad stories appearing on daily base. But what is the main reason lot of people these dais act like psychopaths? And how can we fight against it? I think these are main questions which should be solved fast. I think the family background is most of the time the key. Parents should care more about their children and care less about the money, I know this is hard because without money there will be no satisfied family, but we should do something...

Wow that's really sad and all over fast food. They probably had other serious issues underneath it all. I hope the mom is ok seeing something like that would be very hard to deal with.

That is a sad sorry. I don't understand why the boy would shoot his fater over fast food, but there may be more to the story than just fast food. May the father and the boy rest in peace.

That is a sad story. This Father maybe always picked on this boy and drove him to despair. You just do not know. It did not give him the right to takes his life of his own life. What a tradgic inncident. The world has gone mad.

That's so strange. What is the point in doing that. So what, you got wrong food. Why is that something to get into a huge argument over? I don't get it. People just take things way too seriously and get into fights about the dumbest things.

It is very sad when these things happen. It makes me wonder what this world is coming to, when a boy shoots his father over fast food. It's sad and I hope the mother and wife of the boy and his father is doing okay. It must be devastating for her.

This is a very sad news. I hope the mother is alright after what happened. It will surely be very difficult for her to recover.

that is crazy, it is extremely sad that two people would die over an argument that started over fast food, but they must have had a lot of family problems.

It is indeed a very sad news and shocking as well .Nowadays this has become a trend.I feel this so called new generation have become very impatient and to an extent that they can even take lives of other be it one's own father or mother.This is a serious matter slowly growing and some measures should be taken to avoid developing criminal thoughts and actions in children specially.
