This year has been an eventful one for George Pickering II and his son George Pickering III. George Jr. has made a full recovery after being in a coma. With doctors set to turn off his life support machine, his savior proved to be his own father.
Upon hearing that doctors had given up hope, a drunk and armed George Sr. marched towards the Tomball Regional Medical Center in Houston, Texas, determined to make sure his son was given more time to make a recovery, even if it meant he would spend time in jail.
George Sr. barricaded himself inside with his 27-year-old son as he managed to hold off police, before something amazing happened.
I love this story of a man’s love for his son, and glad that the son has fully recovered, but what disturbs me is that the father was justified in his response and yet they still sent him to prison for 10 months. In my opinion, he should have been let off at the very least, and the medical center should be investigated. – OP
