    CA - Police: Son stabs father, then saws off his own hands

    http://www.cnn.com/2013/06/18/us/cal...html?hpt=hp_t2

    (CNN) -- A 59-year-old man lay bloody on the driveway. His son stood nearby, both his hands cut off at the wrist.

    That's the gruesome scene Shasta County, California, sheriff's deputies encountered Monday afternoon, before calling ambulances to transport the two to area hospitals.

    A full day later, both Gregory Dunn and his son Jason are still alive despite their life-threatening injuries, said sheriff's office Detective Will Gardner.

    No charges had been filed in the case as of Tuesday afternoon. The incident is being investigated as an attempted homicide, police said.

    How did he get the second hand off?
    You don't get a medal for switching alliances just before the result, as it becomes apparent the other team is set to win.

    This is so bizarre. I wonder if the hospital tried to reattach the hands. I can't imagine why anyone would do these things. He most likely needs a mental evaluation if he survives this.

    It says he used a radial arm saw so I gather he must have started it up and placed both hands under it.

    Biblical?

    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    There is a man in the recovery community who has told his story of alcoholism and drug addiction numerous times. He has one working arm and the other one is cut off at the elbow. He tells a heart wrenching tale of a days-long alcohol and drug binge with his son which culminated in him-the father-cutting off his own arm in a cocaine-induced state of paranoia and hallucination.

    One more reason to say no to drugs!

    Sometimes the first step towards forgiveness is understanding that the other person is a complete idiot.

    Jesus Christ. WHY? That would be the most painful thing ever! He is going to be experiencing severe regret when, or if, he ever comes to his senses.
