Local news reports further to our post at the time of the incident

The mother of a 6-year-old boy who accidentally shot himself is now facing criminal charges. 

Konica Campbell, 23, of Rugraff Street is charged with fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon and endangering the welfare of a child, both misdemeanors. 

According to the Rochester Police Department the child was shot in the lower part of his torso after he had found a loaded pistol and started playing with it. 

Campbell was home at the time and called 911 about 6:50 p.m. Sunday. He was transported to Strong Memorial Hospital, where he is currently in satisfactory condition, police said. 

Campbell was arrested Monday and arraigned Tuesday morning.

Well that didn't take long. Usually with your white hillbilly criminal gun owners it takes about a month for the investigation to result in charges. Not for this Rochester, New York mom.

What's your opinion?  Please leave a comment.


  1. Gee, here you site two incidents (one white, one black) of criminal gun owners being charged with a crime after a child was injured, and you still find a way to complain.

  2. My opinion is that it's bad to live in New York.

    1. Toothless grin hillbillies like you wouldn't be comfortable in a civil city.

    2. Jim, you mean the civil city of New York City that tried to legislate how big a soda you can buy? And was recently ordered by the court to stop their illegal searches of it's citizens?

    3. Yes I guess the size of a soda pop defines civil, or not.
      City of millions with a low crime rate. The best art culture short of Paris. The best business climate in the world. I could go on but.........

    4. "City of millions with a low crime rate."

      A city that had 515 homicides in 2011. Sort of ranks up there with Chicago it seems. Only in addition, they were at the same time violating the rights of thousands of its citizens. Please do go on.........

    5. ss, what are you doing, forgetting that we should talk RATE not straight numbers.

      New York is one of the safest big cities in the US.

    6. I'll agree that NYC's homicide rate of 4.5 per 100k is better than Chicago's rate of 6.4 per 100k. But then I moved out of the city because I didn't like the increased crime rates there.

    7. No need to go on; you have defined a civil society as determined by how many ounces of soda you can by.

    8. As opposed to how many limits you can impose? That's a good symbol for the problem, yes.

    9. When hillbillies do things that endanger innocent humans, yes those idiots must be stopped from hurting innocent people. Your stupidity that hurts and kills is not guaranteed by the Constitution. In fact the Constitution gives us a right to protect ourselves from dangerous kill happy hillbillies like you.
