Black Ops Dads: Paddock and Harrelson
Sons - at least not all sons - do not grow up to be copycats of their fathers. But what are we to make of the shadowy pasts of two "dark dads" being discussed recently?
Did these two background "fathers" (until the recent Las Vegas carnage opened this discussion) live charmed lives, as did their sons (through 10.1.2017) too, as suggested by MA Hoffman? See Source.
Mundane data points follow. You connect the dots or not....
Stephen Paddock, Las Vegas mass murderer, was born in Clinton, Iowa. He grew up in Tucson, Arizona, and Sun Valley, California, as the eldest of four sons of Benjamin Hoskins Paddock. Benjamin was a bank robber who was arrested in 1960, when Stephen was seven years old. Benjamin was later convicted and escaped prison in 1969, subsequently appearing on the FBI's most-wanted list. Stephen was 15 years old at the time. According to his brother Eric, they never really knew their father as he was never with their mother.
