DailyMail- A Missouri man has been charged with three counts of first-degree murder after police in Kansas City said he shot dead his ex-girlfriend for hurling a diaper at him and then killed her toddler son and current boyfriend.
The victims in the September 8 slaughter have been identified by police as 17-year-old high school senior Bianca Fletcher, her 1-year-old son JoJo and her 18-year-old boyfriend Shannon Rollins Jr.
Fletcher's 16-year-old brother, Brandon, was the one who discovered the three lifeless bodies after returning home from work just before 9.30pm last Tuesday.
Court records cited by the station KCTV indicate that after gunning down the young woman, her son and her boyfriend, the 22-year-old picked up all the shell casings, showered several times and washed his hands with bleach.
He later also sold the murder weapon, according to documents.
Another witness told investigators that Nelson said to him: 'I did something bad. I did something I don’t think I can live with. I killed them. I killed them.'
Let me drop this disclaimer really quick, It's never okay to shoot and kill three people, one being a toddler, just because you feel you've been disrespected. With that said, IF, and only IF, there were to be a time when it was okay, I think getting hit with a dirty diaper might just be it. Yeah, pulling a firearm and committing mass homicide is an irrational overreaction to a contentious situation, but the smell of baby shit is just as irrationally reprehensible.
How can a woman underestimate an ex-boyfriend, and baby daddy, to this extent? She dated the guy. She has to know if he's the type to be walking around packing heat. She has to know if he's the type to take it over the line when he feels slighted. I don't even know what kind of person commits murder when he's been pelted with most appalling substance know to mankind, but maybe that's only because I have never been put in that position. Honestly, I can say that this murderer is a scumbag all I want, but if someone hit me with a fresh bag of baby poop and I was carrying I'm not so sure if I wouldn't have reacted in the exact same way. This is the reason why I don't want people legally bearing arms. Fuck the Constitution. If everyone had their very own pistol then every thrown diaper would end in premature death. That doesn't excuse this guy for taking the lives of three people, including an innocent child, but it kind of explains how it happens. Baby shit is dangerously close to biological warfare, so while I don't endorse his thought process, I can certainly understand why he saw it fit to draw his weapon. I guess what it boils down to is that there is no equal and opposite reaction to getting pegged with a dirty diaper. That's probably why the woman threw it in the first place, but it's also the reason her whole damn family met an early demise.
