Homeless Man Shot with BB Gun Deserves Justice

Target: Bill Ridgway, Police Chief of DeLand, Florida

Goal: Seek harsh penalty against woman who allegedly drove her delinquent sons to shoot BBs at a homeless man.

A homeless man was reportedly digging through the garbage at a gas station when he was shot with BBs. The victim says that a vehicle drove up and the passengers cursed at him before shooting, then came back later to repeat the disgusting crime.

A 36-year-old mother was later arrested when police learned that she was driving the vehicle when her sons shot the homeless man. Her charges include aggravated battery, child neglect, and contributing to the delinquency of minors.

The woman’s only excuse was that her family owned a car wash and they’d had trouble with transients digging through the garbage, as if that justifies her disgusting actions. Driving her sons to repeatedly shoot a random homeless man is a vile, cruel thing to do. Demand that this woman be given the harshest penalty possible for this heartless, disgusting behavior.


Dear Mr. Ridgway,

A homeless man was reportedly shot with BBs as he dug through the garbage of a gas station, minding his own business. The victim was cursed at and shot, then the heartless people drove back later and did it again.

Police arrested the woman driving the vehicle as her three sons committed these disgusting acts. They could’ve seriously hurt this innocent man. We urge you to see to it that the mother is given the maximum penalty.

    Well, homelessness is not a crime, it could happen suddenly to anyone so it’s not fair… correction: it’s stupid and cruel to mistreat a human being who has already lost his/her home. This mother should be taught and should teach her kids to value human live OVER property or any other phisical object.

    BBs are painful and can cause harm to the victim. where is this woman’s empathy and humanity? she needs to be held accountable.
