Just when I think I’ve seen it all we find out that a 13 year-old kid got arrested for shooting a 12 year-old on Monday. The mother of the shooter is blaming bullying as the cause of this incident and I’m not buying it. Neither will you when I’m done here. 

I know, you’re brimming with questions. Like “how did a kid get a gun,” “was he really being bullied” and “where are the parents?” 

Let’s take a look at what the media is saying “happened” before I expose the horrible parenting that caused this, shall we? 

EAST TAUNTON — A 13-year-old boy shot a 12-year-old acquaintance in the arm Monday afternoon in connection with an incident of “Facebook bullying,” Taunton Police Lt. Paul Roderick said.

The juvenile suspect was arrested on charges of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and discharging a weapon within 500 feet of a dwelling and is currently in the custody of the Department of Youth Services.

Both the suspect and the victim are from East Taunton.
Police responded to a report of a person who was shot near 100 Highstone St. at around noon on Monday.

The victim is currently in stable condition, according to Roderick, who said that he suffered a gunshot wound to the arm. Roderick confirmed that the bullet left a large exit wound out of the back of the victim’s arm and came to rest lodged in his left side ribcage.

According to Roderick, between three and five juveniles confronted the shooting suspect as a result of a dispute police believe started on Facebook. They allegedly made comments that frightened the suspect, Roderick said.

The suspect is alleged to have felt threatened, returned to his home, unlocked a gun safe, went back to a wooded area where the victim was located and shot him with a 22 long rifle.

Police said that the victim told them that he and the shooter had an “ongoing feud” and that they had been in an argument before the shooting.

Two juvenile witnesses interviewed by officers confirmed that the suspect had shot the victim, according to police.
After shooting the victim, the defendant ran toward his house on Rhode Island Road, which was in close proximity to the victim’s house, Roderick said.

Police said that the shooter used a rifle that was legally owned by and registered to his mother and was secured

The mother of the arrested hoodlum in custody, Tiffany Lee Arsenault, is now making the rounds on Facebook and doing news interviews. She’s claiming her kid, David Gross, was being bullied and throwing herself an excuse filled pity party.

Please keep Tiffany’s upcoming quote “My son is not a trouble maker” in your head as you read this blog. It’s important. 

The smartest thing for you to do, after your kid has just shot another kid with your weapon, is to defend him all over the Improving Taunton Facebook group. 

Not buying it Trashbagitha. Welcome to the blog that is going to get you charged right along with your kid. 

Seems your kid has been the local asshole for ages and going as far as to make his Facebook profile picture mimic that of a gang member. 

You know, when he’s not busy getting in to trouble and shooting weapons at the kid he hangs out with. 

Now, If my kid was constantly being called out on social media, and I knew it was him, his ass would be in shit deeper than the Triceratops mound from Jurassic Park. 

Then again, I don’t raise assholes and actually give a crap about what my child is doing. Just saying. 

Not Tiffany! It seems she has a history lying and trying to preempt her little precious from getting in trouble. Let’s take a look back to last month when Tiff’s kid decided to have some fun by throwing rocks and screaming profanities at cars. 

“The kid that shot my son is one of the kids that did the rock throwing.”  Laura Jones, if you didn’t pick up on it, is the mother of the 12 year-old victim being blamed for bullying. Just so ya know. 

Earlier, Tiffany claimed those other kids were the ones running around all hours of the night unsupervised, remember?

Well that wasn’t all David “wasn’t doing.”

Tiffany thinks she’s being incognito here defending her unnamed child but she clearly forgets the internet is forever. 

So if her kid is playing in traffic while throwing rocks, which he was, and you hit him with your car because he’s being an asshole – it’s on you. Tiff will make a fortune if you kill her kid! How no one picked up on her blatant guilt and defensiveness over David’s bad behavior here is beyond me. 

… and don’t you dare try and parent for her. Even if they hit your car with a rock. 

… and don’t you even think about taking a picture of her son for being an unsupervised menace and post it online for the world to see! He has rights you know! 

But he’s not a trouble maker, remember? 

So Tiffany, along with the entire city, has known that David had been causing serious issues since at least April. 
Now let’s conquer the “bullying” card Tiffany decided to throw around the internet and to the media. We all know it’s a buzz word and she clearly exploited it to defend her trail of bad parenting. I’m surprised she was partially smart when making excuses to the cops. 

FACT: The two boys were friends. They hung out with one another every day. Last time I checked I never hung around with the bitch who tormented ME in middle school. Did you? 

CRAZY. Laura, the mother of the victim, said that Tiffany had no clue where her son was! I’m shocked.  

It seems Sandy Ferris really had some knowledge of David and Tiffany as she’s had run-ins with family in the past.

Killing and torturing animals while bullying a disabled kid younger than he was? Yeah, it’s probably a good idea to teach this fine young lad how to shoot guns in areas undesignated for firearms. Wicked smart. 

Earlier, when I posted the MSM story, the last line of the article said the 22 was owned and registered by Tiffany. That it was secured. 

So can someone please explain to me how a 13 year-old kid was able to go home, get the weapon out of the safe, and go after the other kid? 

That’s pretty much the opposite of secure. 

So David wasn’t cornered on his property afraid for his life. He wasn’t in imminent fear or danger because the big mean bully. After all, the mean bully was riding his bike when David came out of nowhere with the gun, the gun he knew how to access AND USE because his mother allowed it, and shot him. 

This was premeditated. 

Kids aren’t just born to be monsters. They have to become them. It’s our job as parents to do the exact opposite as Tiffany Lee. I’m almost thankful David screwed up while he was young and capable of getting help. From what it sounds like, if he was allowed to continue down this path he was on, he could have become capable of something so much worse. The times we live in will allow you to imagine how badly that ugly reality could have been. 

However, with Tiffany seemingly unable to hold herself accountable and continuing to make excuses for David, he won’t ever get better. 

Tiffany shouldn’t be allowed to continue mothering. They should remove her other kid and throw her in jail right alongside David.

    Anyone notice all the comments have one thumbs downs? Gee I wonder who did that? Seems like Ol’ Tiffany should be spending more time punishing her kid than being on the internet. She should also consider herself lucky she hasn’t been arrested yet and that he didn’t kill that other kid, this could have been so much worse.

    This kid from Friedman Middle School, does not live anywhere near it. He’s a troublemaker, from the complete opposite side of Taunton, that was sent to a great neighborhood school, because he was most likely removed from his district.
    I know because my son attended the same school. And knows him. And the kid (shooter) was in the “SPECIAL” classroom for behavioral issues at Friedman. His picture is in the 2016 Friedman Middle School year book, as a 6th grader in 2016. My son is also 13. And he’s a GREAT KID who grasps the full consequences of shooting another human being. He knows because he was educated and taught that for every action, there’s a reaction/consequence! I can’t stand hearing that these “children” don’t have the mentality to comprehend lasting effects of shooting people. They can when they’re educated and constantly being taught right from wrong. And as a parent, I monitor his one social media account. Definitely don’t allow a FB account, at 13. When anything negative transpires, I’m on it! Because it’s my responsibility to protect my child from himself and others! It’s bullshit to claim bullying as the excuse. He went home, got a gun, and returned to shoot someone. That’s planned. And how exactly did he retrieve a gun from a locked safe? With key or combination? Or did he break into it? How did he know where the key was, or how to open the cabinet? Again, bad parenting! If he feared for his life, why did he return to where the other kids were that bullied him? That’s not fear, that’s aggression and vengeance. Children that fear for their lives don’t go back looking for more. He didn’t snap because of the bullying, he is the bully and felt empowered to attack because he had a rifle.
    Friedman has EXCELLENT teachers and staff at the best public middle school in Taunton. And I know for a fact, he didn’t tell teachers about an ongoing FB conflict. So I believe the mother is a complete liar! Her kid is known for bullying and being an asshole by the actual good kids and teachers alike! But it’s certainly his parents’ fault that his life is all messed up. She (Tiffany) even stated in a previous post that the school called her to pick up her troublemaker.
    So now he’s out with GPS monitor? Hopefully he isn’t back at home with the person who raised him to become a teen shooter.
    Me, well I’m busy showing every parent I know from our good neighborhood (Friedman Middle School district), this kid’s picture so they know not to let their children near him. Sounds terrible, but he shot a supposed friend/neighbor. So if he has the mentality to do that to someone he has known for a while, then he could easily”snap” on acquaintences from his school.

    I’ve been “friends” with the mother on social media. Kids always flipping off the camera, the younger daughter always looks dirty and is always eating junk food or is awake watching some
    Adult movie late hours of the night. It’s so sad

    When my idiot kid got caught shoplifting at 17 we found out our state had a had a one time get out of jail free card and they wanted to give it to her, and we told them no, she needed to go to court and learn her lesson. If she was an adult and it would stay on her record I may have thought differently.
    The thing is, my daughter is smart, she finished high school a year early and went to college and this was literally the first time we ever had problems with her, but we wanted her to know actions have consequences. I call her an idiot because she went through the registers that day, paid for her expensive stuff with her debit card, and then tried to steal some cheap $5 item, and the kicker was she had a couple thousand in her bank account so literally had no excuse, and she says she doesn’t understand why she did it either.
    I’m probably going to get a lot of shit for this but just wanted people to know that not all parents make excuses and some even request punishment for their kids. I wish she had got a harsher punishment than she did.
    It worked out well, she is now a responsible adult, working full time, she doesn’t hate us for making her accountable, and she has never been arrested again (knock on wood.)

    So tired of seeing stories like this om the news. Maybe they should start charging the parents with child neglect and endangerment for making it so easy for children to get ahold of firearms. Maybe then parents with firearms will store them with more care.

    When you raise kids and refuse to hold them accountable for their actions, your kids grow up to be PoS. TBS has plenty of articles about people who probably were raised just like this kid at his age. I see jail, drug addiction, and a flat-brimmed Chicago Bull’s hat in his future.

  • Lack of Parenting
    October 11, 2017 at 2:44 pm

    It’s absolutely ridiculous with the lack of parenting skills these mothers possess. A child is a direct reflection of its parents. If your child is out control, has violent outbursts, argues, doesn’t follow rules, has hostility towards others, YOU have FAILED as a parent and you have failed your child. Take responsibility for your children’s actions and go seek professional help immediately.

    This is one illiterate bitch huh. Reading her comments are making me stupid. The kid never had a chance with her as his mom.

    100% Agree. That kid is a menace to society and if let back into the world, without proper supervision and discipline he will either murder someone or get himself killed. Tiffany obviously loves herself and getting attention more than she loves her son. God forbid anyone ever shot that little puke. I wonder if taking a child’s picture in the midst of him causing chaos would suddenly be okay with her? She KNEW if someone took a pic of the kids riding their bikes in traffic, one of those kids would be HERS and thus the defenses came shooting up. Pathetic.
