Potentially. He's drunk, bleeding, and evidently hiding from the cops. Would I let him hide out in my house? No chance, Lance. He's leaving my house one way or the other.

I'm glad to know that all the 15 year-olds in your area are trustworthy precious snowflakes, but here in the NoVA/DC area, they could be a member of MS13.

I don't want to sound like a VTG, but if a stranger enters my house uninvited, (especially drunk, bleeding, and on the run) they've just forfeited their right to continued good health.

Well... From the description the kid sounded drunk and frightened.

I mean... I guess your right, chances are drinking wasn't his only crime.

The kid in the story just didn't sound like a Badass gangster, sounded more like a scared kid.

Hiding criminals is probably not a good idea though.

edit:

Sunspot, can u give more details on the kid? Like his ethnicity, and how he was dressed?

No I absolutely would NOT have let him hide in my basement.
Why should I protect an underage drunk who was running from the cops and who invaded my home late at night? Being under the legal drinking age doesn't absolve him of responsibility for his actions. He got less than he deserved.

you should have brained him with the toaster then said some clever toaster related pun.... all joking aside though you handled that perfectly considering he was like 15. Kudos

Well done. I'm glad everyone got out of it safely, aparently even the kid. He didn't do anything stupid enough to get himself shot.

If you enter someone's house that you aren't invited into then you put yourself at risk. Probably every kid over 6 knows that. Kid is lucky Zombie didn't hurt him, then go get the cops. Who knows, maybe the best thing for the kid was to take a ride in the back of a police car. Hiding him definitley wouldn't have been the best idea in the world.

I think you have me confused with Sunspots. This is his story, not mine.
