Chicago Tribune – A man accused of shooting his daughter at the family’s South Austin home while aiming for her boyfriend is being held in jail in lieu of $200,000 bail. Dante D. White, 49, was arrested after he shot his 25-year-old daughter in the arm about 2 p.m. Saturday. White had been arguing with the daughter’s boyfriend and had demanded that he leave the family’s home in the 4900 block of West Quincy Street, prosecutors said in Cook County Bond Court today.
The argument escalated and led to a single gunshot that struck the daughter when she stepped between her dad and boyfriend. The daughter was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where she was initially in good condition. White was arrested a short while later and showed police where he had disposed of the gun in a trash can near the home. Officers say the .25-caliber firearm had its serial number obscured, which is illegal.
I’ve never felt worse for a man than I do for this boyfriend right now. Forget about the fact that somebody tried to kill him. Dude’s girlfriend is fucking NUTS. You know that old joke, “I wouldn’t want to belong to any club that would have me as a member”? That’s how I feel about girlfriends who won’t hesitate to step in and get sprayed with lead just to save my life. That’s some next-level Romeo and Juliet shit right there. Like I wouldn’t take a punch to the face to save my own mother and this chick is getting blasted by a .25-cal for her man. Holy moly. Have fun with that dude. Broad’s a motherfuckin’ psychopath. Not to mention you can pretty much kiss sex goodbye for the rest of your life. Every night is gonna be like a ghetto version of that Paul Rudd conversation in Knocked Up. “Hey honey you feel like having sex tonight?” “NO I don’t feel like having fucking sex tonight I have to take an ice bath, irrigate and debride my shoulder blade and rub some Neosporin on my exit wounds you dick.” Kinky!
And obviously the kicker is he’ll never be able to shake her. He’s stuck. Indebted for life. You try one move and homegirl’s Dad is gonna pop out and leave you with half your face blown off. Dude would have been better off taking the bullet and wiping his hands clean of the whole family.
