Play politely.

According to the Middeltown Press, the three-year-old was taken to the Providence Medical Center where it was determined that his mouth injury was not just a result of force exhibited by a swinging door but was actually a gunshot wound. Following this discovery, the three-year-old was flown to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.

The other child involved in the accident is just four years old. It is not yet clear how or why the three-year-old was shot, or even how the four-year-old child may have gotten a hold of the gun.


Picturing politeness at Florida State.

Tweet from FSU shooting from daughter to father:  There's a man with a gun in the library.  I love you.

Via PoliticalProf, who wonders, “Is this the society we have created?”

Demonstrably, it is.


Getting a leg up on politeness:

The Iowa Department of Natural Resources says 20-year-old Kyle Fry of Edgewood is recovering from a non-life-threatening wound in a Dubuque hospital. Officials say he accidentally shot himself in the leg with a .22 caliber rifle over the weekend near Littleport in Clayton County. They say he was trying to get his tracking dogs away from the raccoons when the gun fired.


The hunt for politeness continues apace.

Knox County Sheriff Allen Gudehus told KTVO the accidental shooting took place on a farm southeast of Novelty.

He said a man from Illinois was shot by a family member who was deer hunting with him.

Was it the antlers or the little white tail . . . .


Politeness, with malice towards none:

A 15-year-old was killed Sunday by an accidental in Mesa County.

The County Sheriff’s Office says they don’t believe there was any malicious intent behind the shooting that killed Brandon Crawford.


Self-politeness is the politest kind.

The investigation revealed a 25-year old woman sustained an accidental, self-inflicted gunshot wound to her abdomen. She was transferred to the appropriate trauma hospital where she is currently in stable condition.

To my two or three regular readers: I know this gets old. So too does the mix of ammosexuality, guns, and stupid.

If you have a beef with your local rag, express it politely, as this fellow expressed his dissatisfaction with the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Responding officers found Smith screaming from his third-floor window.

“‘I’m not leaving without shooting,’ he kept saying from the window of his apartment,” Chitwood said. “When we tried to negotiate with him, he would scream all types of things.”

Chitwood said Smith fired three shots toward officers in the apartment building’s courtyard.

Over the next three hours, Smith fired off six more rounds at police from his window. When he threatened to shoot down a news helicopter flying over the scene, police moved in and launched tear gas into his window, Chitwood said.

You can’t make this stuff up.
