Longtime Alabama Limousin Breeders might remember Bill Carleton who was very active in the breed in the 80s and 90s has passed. Bill was our County Cattleman's Assocation President ~10 years ago and I liked the guy. Unfortunately, he apparently had some issues with his son, Bob who reportedly shot the old gentleman in the back of the head yesterday.

That is awful! I read the story and some accompanying stories. I don't know this man, but the whole thing reminds me of an older cattleman here who has had problems of this nature with his son. I believe the son has taken a couple of shots at him before...and so far he's missed. My brother intercepted the son once as he headed into an auction that his father was attending. I guess people kind of look over their shoulders anymore. Sad, sorry state of affairs this kind of thing is.

There is nothing wrong with disliking a family member. If you really, really hate a parent...move and never let them know of your wherabout or see/know of their Grandchildren. Assassinating a parent (or anyone for that matter) just to revel in the moment is a perverse pleasure.

I don't think there is ever any reason to put yourself in that sort of position. If you can't see somebody on the street without wanting to kill that person, MOVE and I mean 200, 500, or a 1000 miles away (and don't send a forwarding address or come visit either).........and if that means giving up your paid for, rent free house on your family's ranch (as Bob had)....DO IT anyway.
