Turns out, I wasn’t the target. At least according to the detective who came to see me tonight at work. It looks like it was my 11 year old gamer son, who humiliated some poor sucker in Tennessee on MineCraft. I don’t even know what MineCraft is, but it seems that people, or at least kids, take it seriously enough that this kid who is 17 decided revenge on an 11 year old was a good idea.
Detective was clear that charges are iffy at best. They talked with his folks, and with him, and while the detective thinks they got their guy, and I have to admit that the screen capture he showed me it looks like they do, with the juvi nature and a out of state suspect, they aren’t sure they have enough to charge him. However, I understand that he got quite the scare, and will be cleaning bathrooms for quite a while. Later, his dad called me and apologized. Again, I’m just glad no one got hurt.
So earlier it was all “we may never know.” Now it’s “we know, but may not be able to do anything.” That’s okay, his dad is pissed. I don’t wanna be in the kids shoes anyway.
