Mammas, don’t make your babies grow up to be weirdos

A 45-year-old paroled felon in California donned a bulletproof vest and shot at police because, his mother said, he was “angry at left-wing politicians”. Say, what?

"He hasn't been able to get a job because he's an ex-felon and nobody will hire him," she told the San Francisco Chronicle. Somehow this made him angry at "what's happening to our country," and "the way Congress was railroading through all these left-wing agenda items."

So, let’s review: The man screwed up his life by deciding to commit a felony, he was convicted and sent to prison. He was paroled and, because of his crime he can’t find a job—and somehow that’s liberals’ fault. Okay, then.

But why did Mama have so many guns? "Eventually, I think we're going to be caught up in a revolution." But she did tell him "he didn't have to be on the front lines."

The punchline to this story: “She said she had no explanation for his actions.”
