Stupid SHOULD Hurt...

Here's a feel-good story fresh off the BLNN. I love it when bad things happen to stupid/evil people.

Fight over speeding car ends with Virginia man shooting self in groin, police say
A man apparently speeding in Norfolk, Va., accidentally shot himself in the groin after he waved a firearm at bystanders who told him to slow down, police told

Rhonney Jacobs was speeding through the neighborhood when he was flagged down by two men, Norfolk police said. He made a U-turn and confronted one of the men, police said.
I know I've yelled at cars speeding through my neighborhood to slow down. When your kids are riding their bikes on a suburban side street, with the speed limit of 30 MPH, it drives you crazy to see folks traveling at rates nearly double that. Apparently folks in that neighborhood felt the same way I do, and yelled at this guy to slow down. He doubled back around and tried to scare them with a handgun, and in the process of retrieving it from his Plaxiholster, he shot himself.


I hope he permanently removed a few items necessary for procreation, because someone this stupid doesn't need to spawn.

It sounds like he doubled around, got out of the car and confronted the men, and then went for his gun. It's entirely possible that they saw him reaching for his firearm and grabbed his arm, resulting in him pulling the trigger and shooting himself. In any case, it sounds like he got precisely what he deserved - I just hope he doesn't go back to that neighborhood looking for retribution, as I fear he will.

In any case, it's a reminder to always be mindful of surroundings and the worst possible scenario.

That is all.

Someone in Randolph took the Trayvon solution to a driver he thought was speeding by his house:

Trayvon's mother would have you believe that bare fists do not really cause serious harm.

It is a good thing that the alleged speeder was not armed. Someone could have been killed or something.

Lord, I live next town from Ranbury. That sounds about right.

See? THIS is what a Tuarus Judge is good for! If he had a Judge, he almost CERTAINLY would have converted himself "from a rooster into a hen" in the immortal words of Dolly Parton.
