Child's Party Erupts In Violence...When The Beer Runs Out
We hear stories about wild parties that get out of control and turn into drunken brawls all the time. Often, it’s because someone ends up dead for no good reason.
But usually these are late night drug and booze-fueled affairs attended by adults or wild teenagers—not kid’s birthday parties.
Unfortunately, there’s a first time for everything. Especially in Texas.
Last weekend in Ferris, Texas, which is just outside Dallas, four people were shot, two were stabbed, and two severely beaten after a fight broke out at a girl’s Quinceañera party (celebrating her 15th birthday).
Among the shooting victims is an 11-year-old boy, who took a bullet to the stomach. Thankfully, he’s not the one who died. That was an unnamed adult male.
According to one 14-year-old who left the party right before the bloodshed, nothing seemed amiss. “It was okay. A lot of people were drinking and stuff, other than that, nothing bad.”
But obviously, things got pretty bad pretty quick. Police are still trying to piece everything together, but it looks like the fight broke out after the party ran out of beer.
That’s right. No more beer = cage match to the death.
Now, don’t get me wrong, I hate poor party planning at much as the next guy. Hosts should have enough refreshments to last the whole party. I just don’t think running out of beer is a good excuse to stab somebody. Then again, my family usually just has Bud Light.
