However, I suggest you guys look up his mother on the google machine. She has a record of her own. Went to prison for selling crack in the '90s when Dez was a child. She has a longer rap sheet than he does. There are probably a lot of unresolved issues between him and his mother. I can only imagine the circumstances of this altercation. Certainly not the best way to handle things, but I am going to guess that Dez never had someone teach him how to deal with such things. Not an excuse. All I am saying is I don't envy his position.
Seriously. I realize that these guys all had wonderful mothers (maybe were coddled a little too much in some cases), but not everyone does. Anyone here ever watch Mommy dearest? Now I would never hit my mother (or any woman), even if I could find her, but I don't think anyone would deserve to be shot in the head if they slapped her with a ball cap. Btw Dez' rap sheet is using foul language, and wearing baggy pants. For all we know she could be selling things he gave her to buy crack. Maybe leaving his little brother alone, or maybe having men over the house, beating, or doing worse to his siblings. You don't know. Should be shot in the head, without hearing any of the facts. It's level headed reactions like that, that make everyone respect you so much.
