    Ugly: backseat passenger's gun "goes off," driver is shot and dies

    Well, here's an interesting twist on things. A whole truckload of examples of what not to do.

    Questions remain after man dropped off with gunshot wound.
    Attorney calls shooting death of man dropped off at hospital an accident.

    Basics:

    • Buddy in back seat was apparently a convicted felon, had a gun, was fooling with it (or not).
    • His friend in the car got shot.
    • They drive him to the hospital, drop him off, then leave the hospital. Guy later dies.
    • They tried to get rid of the gun.
    • Two days later, the police track them down. Charges pending evaluating the situation, including tampering with evidence, obstruction, etc.
    • Attorney's claiming "Johnnie's a good little boy."


    Moral of the story: Don't be a felon; don't be a felon in possession of a gun; don't shoot your buddy; don't flee the scene, tamper with evidence, obstruct justice. Pick better friends. (Nothing we don't already know.)

    The "three stupids" proverb comes to mind, you're right.

    Gotta wonder what runs through these people's heads ... besides bullets.

    Unfortunately, that's just too many things for some people to remember.

    You had me at "Buddy in back seat was apparently a convicted felon".

    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.
