Most people who have grown up with computers have dabbled in little comment trolling at one stage or another. Many times, it is just a bit of semi-harmless fun, where nobody really gets hurt – but some people carry things too far, or react too strongly to things they hear online – causing all hell to break loose.
Breana Greathouse, 25, fell into the latter category when she drove 200+ miles from Kansas City, Missouri to Ottumwa, Iowa, to shoot Forrest Jamison – who she blamed for some extremely derogatory comments that appeared on the Undergroundhiphop.com Forums. There was certainly a lot of nasty stuff written on there and I can certainly understand her anger up to a point – but to drive more than 5 hours to settle things with gun-play takes it a little too far.
Fortunately for Greathouse (and Jamison), her trip was cut short when she was picked up by the Ottumwa Police for waving her gun around. Her 50-year-old mother, Susan Greathouse, was subsequently arrested for threatening Jamison over the telephone.
