Cry-Baby of the Week
Jun 7 2013
Cry-Baby #1: Aaron Butler
The incident: The Boy Scouts decided to start letting gay kids be scouts.
The appropriate response: Nothing.
The actual response: Aaron Butler, a Scout Leader in Roseau, Minnesota, quit his position as a scout leader and forced his son to leave the Scouts, too.
Aaron and his son Evan both left the Scouts last week. In an interview with NBC News about it, Aaron said that he hadn't explained to his son why they were leaving, but admitted that it was due to the Boy Scouts of America's recent decision to stop discriminating against homosexual children: "They say it—'On my honor I will do my best to do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law; to help other people at all times; to keep [myself] physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight.' If the BSA cannot honor their own law, then how can I stay with an organization that just does not care anymore?”
Aaron said that his son Evan was disappointed that they "had to leave" the Scouts, saying: “He cried for about ten minutes because I told him that the Boy Scouts were not honoring their own law."
Eight-year-old Evan also spoke to NBC, and said he felt "pretty bad" about it, as he was going to miss the camp-outs, archery, and slingshot activities. When asked if he understood why his parents had made him quit, he responded: “It was between honoring God, and not honoring God. And [not] honoring God got more votes.”
Aaron also expressed regret, saying: “It was something that we all enjoyed, we loved every week of it.”
Cry-Baby #2: Andrew Joseph Lobban
The incident: Three guys pranked one of their co-workers and caught it on video.
The appropriate response: Laughing/being embarrassed, depending on how seriously you take yourself.
The actual response: Andrew Joseph Lobban, the subject of the video, allegedly murdered all three of them.
Thirty-one-year-old Andrew worked as a bouncer at AJ's Nightclub in Ocala, Florida, along with Benjamin Larz Howard, Jerry Lamar Bynes, and Josue Santiago, who were all in their 20s.
Shortly after midnight on Sunday, the four of them were leaving the club when Andrew allegedly shot all three of them. Two of them died at the scene from gunshot wounds to the head. The third victim was pronounced dead in hospital.
Andrew was arrested by police shortly after. During his interview, he admitted to the killings, saying that he did it because the three deceased had been "teasing" him over a video.
According to police, the video in question showed the three victims with Andrew at a gun range. The three deceased rigged a gun so that it would misfire, then handed it to Andrew, who tried (and failed) to shoot it.
This, apparently, embarrassed him so deeply that he killed all three of them, to show that he does, in fact, know how to fire a gun.
Andrew is being held in jail on suspicion of three counts of felony murder. Bail has not been set.
