Don’t Bring a Baseball Bat to a Gunfight

Two step-brothers thought they would take baseball bats and have their way at a house. They thought wrong. He used a bat to attack a Lake Tapps homeowner who uses a wheelchair, charges say.

When they first showed up they used the bats to attack some people outside. Then they went into the house and attacked the homeowner – who is confined to a wheelchair. They hit him in the head.

Then Bouton and his stepbrother proceeded upstairs, where a man and his pregnant girlfriend were living.

The man shot at them, aiming at their feet. When the stepbrother continued toward him, the man shot him in the chest.

The guy who got shot in the chest died. The other guy was shot in the foot, and police caught up with him at a hospital.

He had some reason why they went to the house. I wonder if he thinks it was worth it.

“The state reserves the right to add an aggravator due to the vulnerability of the homeowner,” the charging papers say.

Self-defense is a human-right.
