  1. In other words, he started road rage with his kids in the back of the car, and ending up biting off more than he could chew. Dad of the year right there.

  2. Shame the police couldn’t take care of him once and for all so he doesn’t have a chance to kill someone.

    1. Bit BLOOD-THIRSTY, are you? All Lives matter and think your Call to ‘put down’ another human is rather Uncalled for.

    2. How do you feel about the situation, now that it’s been revealed the man is black?

  3. We cannot have someone driving around and responding to anything by shooting an AR-15 twice up through his sun roof. Get all the facts- kktv has lots more.
