Kids, remember, if you shoot Santa, he won’t come back next year, or the year after that, or…ever.
A man dressed as Santa Claus was walking through a southeast Washington D.C. neighborhood to hand out gifts and was shot in the back with a pellet gun before even handing out a single gift.
The little bastards responsible should spend some time in jail. Three or more shots were heard by Santa after he felt a sharp stabbing pain in his back and realized he had been shot.
The Santa Claus was taken to the hospital on the advice of paramedics and didn’t hand out anymore gifts that day. The neighborhood where Santa was visiting is called Barry Farm south of Anacostia in Washington DC and is almost all occupied with public housing projects.
The Santa was just trying to do some good for the children there beset with economic hardship and crime, and this is what he gets.
He definitely needs to skip this neighborhood next time. However, the shot Santa says he will still return next year to deliver Christmas cheer.
He may want to wear a bullet proof vest next time.
