Bosler: Jobless frustrations prompted attack.
  • Bosler: Jobless frustrations prompted attack.
Count assault suspect John Bosler among the 99 percent. Perhaps if he'd had a constructive way to voice his frustration -- like today's Occupy Wall Street protesters -- we wouldn't have to report the following:

Last week, the 33-year-old Bosler, of Jefferson County, pleaded guilty to three counts of second-degree assault for attacking his parents. The crime occurred in February when Bosler reportedly got into an argument with his father over his joblessness.

According to KSDK, Bosler struck his father several times on the head with a metal pipe. He then grabbed a butcher knife from the kitchen and stabbed his dad before reportedly turning his attention on his mom -- chasing her about the home and slashing her on the hand before ending the attack.

Bosler is to be sentenced on January 18.
