Pretend for a moment that you will one day be deemed fit to raise children, and imagine what you would do if your 14 year old daughter was getting her shit kicked in by another girl in a fight over a boy. Would you throw yourself between the combatants, allowing your folds of backfat to absorb the blows to protect your child? Would you call the other girl’s parents, and come to a level-headed agreement as to an appropriate punishment? Sure, maybe if you’re some kind of PUSSY. If you’re Pasadena resident Viridiana Alvarez, though, you show up to the fight packing heat and point your gun right at the other girl’s fucking head:
Apparently, no one knew what was going on at the time. In fact, it wasn’t until video and still images from the fight surfaced that the victim, 14 year old Victoria Myers, saw how close she was to danger. She saw and heard Alvarez, she says, but had no idea about the gun.
Alvarez is now in jail, charged with aggravated assault. She told the court that the gun was never loaded, she never intended to shoot anyone and that it was only meant to “scare” Myers. Judging by Victoria’s ground and pound game, I don’t think she’s scared of much.
“I don’t think a grown woman should be taking a gun where kids are. I think it’s wrong,” said Candy Broussard, the victim’s grandmother. No shit, lady.
Thus ends your weekly reminder to call your mother, tell her you love her and thank her for never pointing a gun at any of your friends
