Doing the Lord's Work: Shootin' Tards

A Des Moines pastor shot a mentally disabled boy with a BB gun after he ignored the pastor's warning not to knock on his door, police said Tuesday.

David L. Reasby, 51, of Lighthouse Full Gospel Baptist Church was charged Tuesday with assault with a weapon, an aggravated misdemeanor punishable by up to two years in prison and a $5,000 fine.

Investigators say Dillon Carlson, 14, was shot twice in the buttocks. His parents noticed the wounds Monday night. The injuries did not require medical treatment.

"The man who did this must be a sick individual, and I hope he will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law," said Steve Carlson, the boy's father. Reasby is a former reserve police officer in Des Moines. He left the department in 2004 after he was involved in an unrelated assault, Sgt. Todd Dykstra said.

Dillon reportedly knocked on a sleeping Reasby's door and was told to go away, but the boy knocked again, police said. Reasby warned the boy he would shoot if the knocking persisted, police said.

Looks like he bagged his limit.

They say that hundreds of years ago, the mighty retard roamed the plains in herds ten-thousand strong. However, overhunting and the encroachment of special-education facilities upon native retard habitat have all but wiped this magnificent creature from the Earth. This majestic beast, once a symbol of the American prairie, can now be seen only in captivity or at Alabama family reunions.

i feel that rev. reasby is being targeted and what he did, if he did it was wrong, but look at all the good things he done for the community and the prison system. people are so cruel all they can focus on is the bad things. this is a man of god and has not committed no more than anyother man of god. pray for him instead of putting your foot on his neck and trying to destroy him. he helped this family out by giving them a place to stay and to the father if you had of been doing your job your wife and child would not have being in a safe place and this would not have happen. how you have the nerve to talk about abuse. look in the mirror
