Hi,

See http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-40438207

Quote

"A Minnesota woman has been charged over the fatal shooting of her boyfriend, in what authorities say was a social media stunt gone wrong.

Monalisa Perez, 19, was booked into county jail after shooting at Pedro Ruiz as he held a book to his chest, believing it would stop the bullet.

The couple's three-year-old child and nearly 30 onlookers watched as she fired the fatal bullet into his chest.

Ruiz's aunt said they did it to increase their social media following.

Claudia Ruiz told WDAY-TV that her nephew had told her he wanted to do the stunt "because we want more viewers, we want to get famous"."



Well why am I not surprised :)


Regards, Mick.D.

The level of stupidity here is utterly mind boggling... It was a .45 calibre round vs a book... I have a .22 air rifle that punches a hole in 5/8" plywood... That's a 16-20 grain projectile traveling about 5-600fps at the time of impact. A .45 ACP round is 230 grain traveling around 830 fps when fired from a pistol... Can we see the difference?

I probably shouldn't be applying grey matter to this and it is rather unfortunate that he'd pulled the trigger so to speak and got the lass preggers before removing himself from the gene pool... :cry:

The positive out of this is that we have removed two idiots in one hit rather than just one of the fools.
