The short version: some teens in Taunton were the victims of some sort of a thrown-object attack on their car. In response, they went to the supermarket and purchased a can of soup, and threw it at John R. Finch.
After an investigation, police contacted the youths and their parents. Carreiro said the youths “freely admitted” to throwing the can of soup, but claimed they meant to throw it at someone else.
Prado was driving the car and Rebello threw the can, Carreiro said.
I don’t know whether to be happy that this wasn’t a drive-by shooting, or upset that there might be something in the water upriver from us that is causing all this lame Taunton news lately.
This supports my anti-gun-control belief that when teens can’t get guns, they will simply attack each other with Chickarina.
