One Rowdy Night

There is no statistic to validate this assumption, but I think almost every bar or tavern has at least one frequent customer who regularly over-indulges and gets rowdy. This is a sad case about that kind of customer.

The regular customer had been at the bar earlier in the day. When he came back for more adult beverages and a good time, the security person at the door (often referred to as a bouncer) denied the man entry.

The 19-year-old bouncer had enlisted in the U.S. Navy and was to begin his basic military training (boot camp) in one month.

The unhappy, inebriated customer left only to return a short while later with a loaded firearm. Then he callously shot the soon-to-be navy recruit in the head. Afterward, he fled the area, but the local authorities apprehended him shortly after the incident.

The young man with a bright future did not survive his injury.

Rather than go to trial, the local 32-year-old man pleaded guilty to 1st Degree Intentional Homicide. A judge sentenced him to life in prison with the possibility of parole after 35 years. #truecrime #lifeinprison #navyrecruit

All because the young recruit denied the drunk man re-entry into the bar.
