    Another "You Can't Fix Stupid"!

    This guy and his co workers were discussing whether a steel toe boot would withstand a round from a .45, so what do do you think would be the best way to test this theory? YUP, you guessed it. Good thing he wasn’t testing his hard hat.

    Too bad it wasn't his hardhat. I get the feeling his worth will always be in the red.

    Of all people who should know better!

    I'm sure alcohol or drugs played a part in this insanity.

    I remember sometimes when we would drop by the lounge at the FOP at shift end ALL gun belts were taken off and stored before a top was popped.

    My recollection is faded regarding matters of those circumstances especially now that I have four kids and a wife.

    You are correct, Mike...
    In an internal police misconduct report obtained by CBS St. Louis affilitate KMOV-TV, a police lieutenant alleges both Officer Nathaniel Hendren and his partner "consumed alcoholic beverages" while on duty the night Officer Katlyn Alix was shot and killed by Hendren during a game of Russian roulette.
    I look at it as another reason for prohibition...But then what do I know?......Ben

    The big shame is that this was not traditional Russian roulette

    No---you put the gun to your own head and pull the trigger.

    I recall a tell of the man lying in bed who is arisen to that half sleepy state between comprehension and recognition, sees The Thing Moving In Room with him, grabs his pistol off the table and blows his toe off.
