Catching bad guys is much easier when they don’t use basic safe gun handling practices. You know, basics like good trigger discipline never muzzling yourself. It was a conspicuous lack of that kind of care and attention that allowed the over-worked Seattle police to get another criminal off the streets quickly after he tried to burglarize a garage yesterday.

A homeowner heard a noise in his garage and, as the Seattle PD describes what happened, he went to investigate . . .

As the victim approached his garage, he saw the masked suspect, who turned and ran. The victim grabbed a broom and followed the suspect, who fled to a van in a nearby parking lot.

The un-named burglar then pointed a handgun at the homeowner and told him to back off.

When he saw the gun, the victim turned around, and heard a gunshot moments later. The suspect in the van then sped away.

A search of local hospitals revealed a man dressed the way the homeowner described who had presented with a gunshot wound to his head.

Police believe the suspect accidentally fired his handgun while climbing into his van, striking himself in the head. Officers also learned the suspect’s van was reported stolen and had been used in another crime outside of Seattle. Additionally, the suspect is also a convicted felon, unable to legally possess firearms.

What are the odds?

Once the suspect receives treatment for his injuries, police will book him into the King County Jail for burglary, unlawful possession of a firearm, felony harassment, and possession of a stolen vehicle.

How about discharging a firearm within city limits? Reckless endangerment? Surely prosecutors can come up with a few more if they try really hard. We’d be happy to provide a list of the four rules of gun safety for the would be burglar, but assuming he recovers from his wounds, he isn’t likely to need them any time soon.

  1. It’s Seattle. He’ll be out on a no cash bond after he is released from the hospital. He will be convicted and sentenced to six months, with credit for time served and good conduct. After all, he’s just a poor, and a misunderstood victim of his own drug addiction. Have mercy on him!

  2. It’s Seattle he will just be released on O.R. After being released from the hospital!
    Since the headline didn’t identify in bold letters white man I’m assuming he wasn’t.

  3. If only they would get the Federal charges brought against him we wouldn’t hear about him for forty years!

  4. Finally one the Seattle could catch, I am betting we hear nothing when the local communist prosecutor turns him out with some sort of excuse like: This person has suffered enough and will have a permanent disfiguring scar. They now understand that they have been victimized by the culture and are doing something about it by applying to community college so they can get their degree in Afrocentric Women’s Studies since they have declared themselves as a Nonbinary Computational Device.

  5. It’s already been said – but Seattle. If criminals anywhere have any brains, the criminals in Seattle were last in line to get theirs.

    No pics? Does he look like he could be Obama’s son?

  6. I had an armed robbery suspect shoot himself I the top his calf to try to make himself look like a victim. The Winchester .45 auto 230 gr Silver Tip stopped in his ankle. Ouch! I understand he has a severe limp today and no longer attempts to flee on foot. This after the best medical attention DOC could provide. It was pre-Obama. Health Care. If not, it probably would not have interuupted his ballet career.

    • Oh, the pistol, a non descript stainless DA/SA Taurus, was stolen out of Tampa. Returned to the owner when the case was disposed of. I saw to it.

      • I’ll bet that Taurus semi-auto pistol owner was flabbergasted–probably figuring that he/she would never see that handgun ever again.

      • Not to be a blowhard or anything, but good for you Gadsen! We almost forgot how wonderful you are.

        • Rider, I was doing my job. If that pistol had been stolen from you what you have liked me to do differently?

        • Wait a minute! Aren’t you the guy I proposed a wager to a few days ago? You didn’t accept, but wouldn’t publicly decline either. Also posted my PX. Nothing. I’ll make it easier for you. With a screen name like Rider/Shooter you must have some interesting stories. I’d like to hear a few of them. Seriously. It will not be considered bragging. In the meantime, grow a pair or leave me alone.

        • Fair enough Gadsen. I only bug you because you unfailingly brag yourself up in different ways and it becomes distasteful to ‘hear’ after a while (yet you call me the blowhard 🙄). You made an invite and a challenge which I respect and I consider it open and will or will not respond depending on circumstances. I’ve got your number and if I head south again I might very well take you up on it and I’ll enjoy it regardless of the outcome as I stated previously and yeah, you bet I got a few stories of my own. I’ll leave you alone and even apologize for calling out your smug grandiosity (although I’m not in the least sorry for doing it) as it’s kinda rude from behind a keyboard and not really my business how you present yourself. From your comments I think I know your type fairly well and I understand you probably aren’t even aware of how you sound. Be well Gadsen.

  7. Police believe the suspect accidentally fired his handgun while climbing into his van, striking himself in the head.

    At least he was struck in a non-vital organ and should make a complete recovery.

    Hey, didja know that there are seven organs in the human body that you can live without?

  8. This will turn out to be a “no bail” situation. It is only compassionate to allow the wounded suspect to seek better medical attention than provided in jail; compassionate treatment.

    The actions of the suspect will eventually be declared to be the result of unfair treatment of right-wing elites (or worse). Just like mathematics (and probably all “science”) law is based on elite privilege of those who have no need to commit crimes.

    • No wonder they call it “Progressive™”. Like a high speed pile up on a winter freeway, it just gets progressively worse. And when they say ” Diversity is our Strength™”, they ain’t talkin bout you n me…

  9. HOLY HOLE IN DA HEAD .
