    You can see in the pics those are mobile homes. Very dangerous to shoot around there.

    Really, shooting at someone is not attempted murder but if a kid says something in school he is in more trouble than this guy. What a country, only in America.

    I’m sorry. But firing a gun at another person or animal should be considered “intent”. I was taught to never pull the trigger till you are sure of what your target is. And when I pull the trigger, my “intent” was to always hit what I am aiming at.

    I still don’t understand the concept of someone shooting at someone else “without intent to kill”. If I were the one being shot at, I would certainly think someone’s intent was to kill me.

    Only a $1,000 bond? Seriously?

    Agree. If he had some pot, it would have been $10,000, violence walks and dopes and mopes fill our jails at taxpayer expense……but people who shoot at people……let em walk.

    Opie and my son didn’t mean to kill the mama birds either, but they both did. One never fires a gun at any living thing as accidents do happen.

    “without the intent to kill.”

    It is good to know he was a good enough shot to be shooting at people in such a way as to be certain his shot would not kill. I am not that good a shot.

    Only a $1000 bond? Seriously?
