N.C. Man Arrested for Shooting Son on Thanksgiving Day Over Kneeling Argument

Police in North Carolina have arrested a man who they say shot and wounded his son after a heated Thanksgiving day argument about athletes kneeling during the national anthem.

Investigators for the Cary Police Department have charged Luis Valencia Lamadri, 51, with felony assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury, according to the City County Bureau Identification arrest records.

Authorities say Lamadri shot his son, 21-year-old Esteban Marley Valencia, with a shotgun after a physical altercation that stemmed from the argument.

According to Valencia-Lamadri, his son started throwing furniture and a water bottle, hitting him in the face.

That’s when Valencia-Lamadri pulled the trigger of the pistol grip shotgun he was holding, striking Esteban Valancia in the hand and leg before he was taken to the hospital for medical treatment.

Family members who witnessed the incident told police Esteban Valenia had been involved in physical and verbal altercations with several people inside the home that day.

Valencia-Lamadri told detectives Esteban had been drinking all day and was asked to leave after his father retrieved the shotgun, according to The News and Observer.

But instead of leaving, Esteban began throwing patio furniture and other items at his father and family members in the backyard of their two-story home.

After Esteban struck his father with a water bottle in the face, Valencia-Lamadri pulled the trigger of the shotgun, striking his son in the hand and leg.

Valencia-Lamadri said he wasn’t trying to harm his son, but that when he and his family sat down for their Thanksgiving meal, Esteban and Lamadri’s other son 27-year-old Felipe Miguel Valencia got into a heated argument about athletes taking a knee during the national anthem.

That’s when Esteban charged at Felipe.

But Lamadri did not have the strength to prevent his two son’s from fighting and Esteban apparently wasn’t going to leave the home, so he retrieved his shotgun.

Lamadri was later transported to the Wake County jail and later released after posting a $50,000 bond.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
