Don’t have a lot of info on this video. In fact, none. One thing I do know: aiming a firearm at your leg at any point is a really dumb thing to do. That and “playing” with a loaded gun is damn stupid. In fact, this cop is such an obvious Irresponsible Gun Owner of the Day award winner that I only need to leave you with this quote from John D. Rockefeller: “Every right implies a responsibility; every opportunity an obligation; every possession a duty.”
NSFW? Are you fucking kidding me? WTF?! First we have some “puffs of smoke” and “holes in the windshield” that we have to protect our five year olds from watching in the Phoenix police chase video and now we have a blurry, soundless, bloodless video of some assclown hopping around on one leg that contains a warning to sensitive viewers. What has become of my country? Of my fellow man? And I use the term “man” loosely.
I’d suspect more people would get in trouble at work for looking at gun porn, like the pocket-dump pictures or a gun review, than this blurry video. After all, a coworker might see a picture of a gun and feel threatened.
NSFW doesn’t bother me though. When I started, I had to sign that I accepted the possibility of exposure to very offensive, violent, pornographic, etc. internet content as part of my job.
That leg totally had it coming. Good shoot.
Yeah. Shake it off. Then walk it off.
Well, hop it off.
Somebody wanna reference this video next time some mall ninja talks about his super-powerful mega hydrostatic shock wonder ammo?
You gotta presume he was carrying cop bullets, and he shot himself at point blank range, and he hopped up and kind of walked it off. It’s been said many times, handguns are lousy stoppers. Here’s an example of why.
Pfff if he was loaded with G2 RIP it would have been an instant one shot stop.
It would have severed his leg and then gone up his femoral artery to his heart to explode!
Look at it again. It was a graze. Even a .22 will stop you if it were to hit the femur.
Probably a 9mm, so his soul is still intact…
Read recently most NDs occur when loading/unloading/playing with firearms.
Yeah, he showed him.
Your Darwin Award winner of the day
Nope. Missed the family jewels by “that” much.
Was that a GLOCK brand GLOCK or a lowly Taurus? Hard to tell. It sure looked painful…
Since this accident happened on the job, the cop tried to bring a workers comp claim, but the judge ruled that he didn’t have a leg to stand on.
Your waitress will be here all week, folks. Don’t forget to tip the comedian.
Well played sir, well played.
Sometimes you try to bleed the system dry, and sometimes…
“Well played sir, well played.”
That’s what Ralph does. The true ‘Master of Wisecracks’.
One day I hope to have ten percent of his rapier wit…
Ah, it’s rapist wit. Everyone knows that.
Atleast his hit percentage is higher than the NYPD.
That’s gonna leave a mark…
Obviously not a .45 /sarc off
Tis but a scratch.
Notice how in all the “I just fucking shot myself” videos, they throw the gun down like it was the gun’s fault.
During my USAF career, I saw a few such “accidents”. One guy on graveyard shift was playing John Wayne on the Main Gate when his S&W K 15-4 .38 discharged putting a bullet through his leg just above the knee (he was sitting on a desk when the accident happened). He called the dispatcher and reported it. The dispatcher thought he was joking and ignored the call. About 5 minutes later the sentry called again and inquired whether a patrol was enroute. I was the patrol. When I arrived I found the sentry sitting calmly awaiting help. There was blood all over the wall and floor. Turns out he had nicked an artery. This just goes to show that the cop in the vid could have done some serious damage.
Usually when I’m playing around that long down there someone else is getting a shot…
It’s Brazil. If a cop there doesn’t shoot three robbers during his shift he takes one in the leg just because he’s bored.
I used to be an adventurer like you, then I took a hollow-point to the knee.
Not a cop. It is a security guard.
It is a 38 revolver, and several security companies only carry round nose lead bullets ( I sh1t you not).
Security companies here in Brazil cannot use anything larger than .38 for revolvers and .380 for semi-auto. Some armored cars keep 12ga shotguns.
