A Dallas man was convicted of murder Thursday after he shot his neighbors for sweeping their dog’s feces onto his porch.

Chung Kim, 76, shot his two neighbors after they repeatedly let their dog’s poop drip onto his property from their balcony, Reuters reports. He first shot Michelle Jackson as she stood on her balcony above his, then went upstairs and shot her boyfriend, Jamie Stafford.

Court records show that the couple let their dog relieve himself on their balcony, but then swept the excreta off their porch and onto Kim’s.

Kim told CBS 11 in Dallas-Fort Worth that he blacked out when he shot Jackson and shot Stafford in self-defense. He faces an automatic sentence of life in prison without parole.

I have a neighbor who wont let me rebuild my fence because it will go on the property line which has mysteriously crept more than a foot onto my property.   We verbally blew up last time I tried to talk to him.

You have to understand they had 14 great danes with chronic diarrhea.  The dead neighbors swept an average of 32 pounds of gooey dog sh!t onto his deck each week, and on this particular day he went outside for a stretch, was yawning up to the sky with his mouth open, and in went the diarrhea.  They didn't put those details in the article.

And if he hadn't had a gun handy? Hard to say what might have happened. They might have gone to jail. They, like seven thousand children killed with guns, and God knows how many black teens in Chicago and elsewhere. Guns. Good for nothing. Get 'em Gone.

It was an over-reaction, but people who would do something like allow their dog to defecate on a balcony don't really belong in society. Did he not try to take this up with his landlord?

Well at least he did not shoot the dog.

Kim told the court at sentencing, "I don't take sh*t from anyone."

I'd prefer you move your good for nothing self to gun-free Mexico where you can live in total safety.

@AndrewK777 No kidding. That's really unfortunate that the first reaction is to go shoot someone. Shows a good bit of what's wrong with mentality in society today... But, agreed. That is just disgusting that the people above were so rude. I'd have at the very least egged their upstairs every time it happened.
