I find weird local news cases fascinating.

Raleigh mother, son charged with trying to kill father :: WRAL.com

On his facebook account, the grimacing perp in the news photo said "I make the City of Raleigh a safer place, one shoplifter at a time." listing his past job as Loss Prevention Officer at JCPenny. He also worked as a legislative assistant for Rep. Craig Horn.

He also has a picture of what looks like a stick-figure drawing of a male holding his finger to his lips going "Shhhh", and what looks like some sort of bloody weapon (subjective).

I think you have the wrong Facebook page. The correct one is the one that shows he is a graduate assistant at ECU.

So the cops want us to believe the family have been planning this for 6 months and the best they came up with was 4 inch knife. OK.

Which reminds me, I need to start being nicer to my kids.

Nope, same guy. You have to click on the photos and page through lots of them to see the one I was referring to. The employment stuff appears to be gone since I posted that.

To be fair, there are LOTS of non-controversial photos there. Like dachshunds, lady gaga and plenty of other indications of a normal person (and a 4" pairing knife doesn't exactly sound like the weapon of choice of someone who was planning anything).

But indications of a normal person are less interesting to point out in cases like these.

The article said they've been planning this since May. I thought it strange that with 6 months of preparation the best they could come up with is a 4" pairing knife.
