DEA Agent Who Shot Self In Foot Sues Uncle Sam - April 11, 2006

APRIL 11--A Drug Enforcement Administration agent who stars in a popular online video that shows him shooting himself in the foot during a weapons demonstration for Florida children is suing over the tape's release, claiming that his career has been crippled and he's become a laughingstock due to the embarrassing clip's distribution.

The shooting occurred moments after Paige told the children that he was the only person in the room professional enough to carry the weapon. ....

Brings a whole new meaning to show and tell!

It is also a classic demonstration as tp why the state is NOT competent enough to be allowed to do aone hell of a lot of things.

Hmm. Law officers on your side of the pond are not allowed to carry guns. Is that a reflection on their ability to handle firearms?

Fortunately, he has a very short penis.

A few years ago, there was a lady standing in an airport boarding line in Florida (these stories begin in Florida quite often). A buzzing sound began to emanate from her luggage. She was quickly surrounded by airport security. She was forced to open her luggage and take out the object that was buzzing. It turned out to be a vibrator. At this point, some of the security people and other passengers in line started laughing. The lady subsequently sued the airport for subjecting her to public scorn and ridicule, and invasion of privacy. If I wanted to maintain my privacy, a lawsuit is definitely the way I would do it.

Frank,

Well, Pa Remittance does like to retell a story he once heard from one of his Plod drinking acquaintances (Ma Remittance does complain about some of the unsavoury compnay he keeps).

Apparently a Met firearms instructor was giving a lecture to new recruits at Hendon Police College. In much the same bragging way as Paige boasted of his abilities, he demonstrated how to unload and clear a pistol. He then proudly informed the class that the weapon was entirely safe before holding it to his temple and blowing his brains out.

As I say, a classic example of why the state is not always the most competent authority.
