Charges: Man Pointed AK-47 At Daughter Over Grades

ST. PAUL, Minn. (WCCO) – A 51-year-old St. Paul man is accused of pointing an AK-47 assault rifle at his daughter after the two argued about her grades in school, according to charges filed Friday in Ramsey County Court.

Kirill Bartashevitch was charged with two felony counts of terroristic threats in connection with the Jan. 13 incident.

According to the complaint, St. Paul Police responded to St. Paul Central High School on Jan. 17 after a report of an assault against a 15-year-old female student. A social worker at the school had received a report from a parent who had been monitoring her son’s electronic communications. The communications showed that Bartashevitch had sent the son a message that he had pointed an AK-47 rifle at the girl.

The complaint states that the girl and Bartashevitch were arguing at their residence on Jan. 13 about her grades in school. She was getting two Bs in school instead of two As. He swore at the girl, who then told him she hated him, and he grabbed a recently purchased AK-47 and pointed it at her.

According to the complaint, he bought the rifle because he knew it would soon be banned. The girl’s mother jumped between them when he pointed the gun, and the girl was eventually ordered to go to her room by Bartashevitch.

The girl’s mother told police that when she intervened, Bartasevitch threw her to the floor and that he pointed the gun at both of them, the complaint states.

On Jan. 24, police conducted a search warrant of his home and found 9mm ammunition and receipts for the purchases of two rifles.

2 Bs and a gun being pointed at you?! Holy fuck not only is that just A) ridiculous but B) EXTREMELY OVERBOARD.

As in buying the damn guns cuz you think Obama's gon take it away. :|

Not that I find his behaviour in any way acceptable, but - over 2 Bs?! o_O Seriously, if that's his standard I would have been shot by now...

YOU NEVER, EVER POINT A GUN AT SOMEONE UNLESS YOU INTEND TO KILL THEM. FIRST FUCKING RULE OF GUNS.
baked_goldfish 5th-Feb-2013 12:36 am (UTC)
Yyyyep, because the other first rule of guns is, "Always treat a weapon as though it's loaded." This father is exactly the type of person who should never be within 1,000 feet of a firearm.

I...just can't.

On some level, it is morbidly funny, because his parental frustration is obvious, but sorry son, you do not get to point guns at people, especially your own kids and wife, especially over some fucking grades. He pushed his wife, too? And the whole "I'd better stock up before Obummer bans them" thing is so damn paranoid and dumb as shit.
gloraelin 5th-Feb-2013 01:08 am (UTC)
"parental frustration" means that it's FUNNY when a father points a GUN at his daughter for two B GRADES*?! what the shitting fuck kind of humor is that? NO. NO NO. Not okay, ever.

*instead of As, which is still not bad, and shit, sometimes things happen in class, and I'd lay bet that a considerable amount of any stress that caused issues at school is because of her fucking father.

This is the real problem with guns. When a gun is available, that's the go to solution. I probably don't need to reiterate that having a gun in the home is much more likely to get you or a family member killed than it is to protect you from an intruder.

And no surprise, who are most negatively affected by guns in the home? Women.
From one study:

Whereas most men are murdered away from home, most children, older adults, and women are murdered at home. A gun in the home is a particularly strong risk factor for female homicide victimization. Women in the United States are at far greater risk of homicide victimization than women in other developed countries, and the greatest danger for women in homicides that occur in the home comes from their intimate partners— especially partners with guns.

The presence of a gun makes quarrels, disputes, assaults, and robberies more deadly. Many murders are committed in a moment of rage. For example, a large percentage of homicides—and especially homicides in the home—occur during altercations over matters such as love, money, and domestic problems, involving acquaintances, neighbors, lovers, and family members; often the assailant or victim has been drinking. Only a small minority of homicides appear to be the carefully planned acts of individuals with a single-minded intention to kill. Most gun killings are indistinguishable from nonfatal gun shootings; it is just a question of the caliber of the gun, whether a vital organ is hit, and how much time passes before medical treatment arrives.

what excellent parenting there
kitanabychoice 5th-Feb-2013 12:04 am (UTC)
man, seriously? here's a guy who needs his gun ownership card revoked because pointing a gun at your child over their GRADES (not even awful grades at that) is just not the actions of a responsible gun owner. OR parent, while I'm thinking about it.
bleed_peroxide 5th-Feb-2013 12:23 am (UTC)



Oh my god. And the worst part is that I can see the same people that were all "you go, dude!" over that dad that humiliated his daughter over the laptop will think this guy is giving her "tough love" or what-the-fuck ever.
roseofjuly 5th-Feb-2013 12:41 am (UTC)
YES LET'S GIVE EVERYONE ASSAULT RIFLES

Reminds me of an image posted here from facebook awhile back of someone posting a photo of bunch of guns laid out stating that no one was going to ever hurt his family- and all I could think is "except you". Because it's not like people never use them against another member of their family -_-

Honestly can't say this surprises me at all...
tigerdreams 5th-Feb-2013 12:53 am (UTC)
Conservatives take note: THIS GUY is an excellent example of the sort of person we want to take guns away from. If you are not like this guy, you probably don't need to worry about your guns. If you are like this guy, LOOK AT YOUR LIFE, LOOK AT YOUR CHOICES.
hinoema 5th-Feb-2013 04:41 am (UTC)
THIS.
toastieghostie 5th-Feb-2013 01:24 am (UTC)

I can't even articulate all the levels of dnw and disgust I feel right now. I hope that guy is locked the fuck up.
thedorkygirl 5th-Feb-2013 01:35 am (UTC)
omg seriously. this is the sort of idiot that is out there buying a gun right now bc the 2nd amendment rights are about to be violated. gah it makes me so mad. i fn hate idiots like this who are king of the castle.
illusivevenstar 5th-Feb-2013 02:47 am (UTC)
Had to listen to one of my co workers complain about gun control today. He's talking about moving to Wyoming or Texas or somewhere red so he can have his guns.

He's not someone who listens to people. He just talks over them. I ignore him until he stops. He keeps trying to bait me into political discussions and there's no way it will end well. I play anti gun control bingo in my head while he rants.
angelofdeath275 5th-Feb-2013 05:02 am (UTC)
Uhhhh he can go sit in a corner now

For years</p>

In prison

Over a couple of B's. Christ, I would have offered up exotic sexual favors for a couple of B's.
et_tu_lulu 6th-Feb-2013 09:38 am (UTC)
So glad he was charged and hopefully he'll go to prison for a while.

As a parent, I understand being frustrated over your kids grades, but seriously, you take away their phone or the wii and make them do their damn homework. You don't aim a gun at them.

What an asshole.
