Now that’s what I call a vile temper. Thank God a probable serial killer or mass murderer has been taken out of the equation early enough. Pity his father had to pay with his life.

Miami-Dade prosecutor Gail Levine shared a glamour shot of Meghan Fox during court proceedings on Tuesday.
Michael Nistal, an inmate jailed with Beckman after his arrest, told jurors on Tuesday that the snarky, sexually-charged remark about the now 27-year-old “Jennifer’s Body” star’s body sparked the bloody encounter, the Miami Herald reported.
As Miami teen, Jason Beckman murdered his father, according to prosecutors. Defense attorneys argue the shooting was accidental.
After the elder Beckman told his son that he wouldn’t know what to do with Fox, “he went and got a shotgun and blew his head off,” Nistal said. “He missed his head and shot his face and part of his neck.”
Jason Beckman allegedly used a shotgun to kill his father. He was aiming for his head, his cellmate says, but missed.
The Florida paper reported that Beckman poked his father’s body with the firearm to see if he was still alive, according to Nistal, who is serving a seven-year prison sentence.
Back in 2008, Nistal was busted for a burglary-spree that culminated in a 2008 high-speed chase. He said that Beckman intended to weasel away from justice by saying the shooting was an accident, in self-defense or the result of insanity.
City Commissioner Jay Beckman was slain in 2009, and prosecutors say that’s due to a wisecrack he made to his son.
But Nistal assured Miami-Dade prosecutor Gail Levine that Beckman “knew right from wrong.” Levine shared an alluring glamour shot of Fox with the courtroom, according to the Miami Herald.
Jason Beckman ‘knew right from wrong,’ according to the man who once shared his cell.
The suspect also told Nistal in the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center that he planned to murder any court witnesses after getting out of jail, he said.
Defense attorneys argue that the shooting was accidental.
