He Chose His Friends....Poorly

Hanging out with criminal elements can lead to bad ends, and on Christmas it ended a 16 year-old Detroiter's life.

The Detroit News: Funeral arrangements pending for teen shot on Christmas

The takewaway from the incident:
One of Bernard's friends, a 19 -year-old male is in custody for the shooting. The teen hasn't been arraigned at this time, said Moreno.
 . . .
Detroit police initially said the group was playing with a gun when it discharged. Culbert said she believes one of the friends might have been demonstrating how he used the gun, possibly to commit a crime, and accidently shot her son.
Now the 19 year old man is expected to be arraigned on charges of manslaughter, felony firearm and possession of a stolen firearm.

Don't act the thug, don't be a thug and don't hang around with thugs playing with guns like toys and your chance of dying in such an avoidable incident is highly reduced.  A sad waste of a life to what appears to be an act of completely avoidable stupidity.
