When you hit and then run from the scene of an accident, do so with politeness.


Politeness is essential when one is sojourning at the lodging house.

A 10-year-old was taken to the hospital after he was accidentally shot by another child inside a hotel room in north Nashville.


Police said the three kids were playing with a cap gun when one of them picked up a real gun and accidentally shot the victim.


From the BBC:

Mr Meredith explained that the drone was hovering above his neighbourhood. When it moved over his property, he shot it down.

Three shots from his Benelli short-barrel shotgun took the craft out of the sky.

“I went to my safe, retrieved my shotgun, went back out,” he said. “I felt that I was well within my rights as an American citizen to defend my property.”

He explained that he was concerned that the drone was invading his privacy and that of his daughters and that it was not the first time a drone had been sighted in the area.

Four men, including the owner of the downed drone, later confronted Mr Meredith outside his house.

Mr. Meredith was arrested and charged with “offences relating to the discharge of a firearm.”

As much as I disdain the reckless, feckless deployment of firearms, I must confess that, if Mr. Meredith starts a GoFundMe for his defense, I might kick in five bucks.


Play politely.

An 8-year-old boy died in an apparent accidental shooting Thursday, police said. It was at least the sixth such shooting of a child and at least the fourth death in Harris County this year. . . .

Also in the room at the time was an older boy, 11. He told Houston police investigators that he and the 8-year-old were tossing a pistol back and forth when it suddenly fired. The younger boy was struck in the head and died at the scene.

Greet prospective home buyers politely.

A five-year-old child accidentally shot his seven-year-old sister in the leg after the siblings followed a cat into a bedroom and found a handgun under a bed, the Hanover Sheriff’s Office said. Saturday afternoon’s accidental shooting happened when the family was viewing the Beaverdam Road home that was for sale.“

The investigation revealed that while the family was viewing a home for sale, the two children followed a cat into a bedroom. One child followed the cat under the bed, where the handgun was stored,” investigators said. “The victim was shot in the leg and had non-life threatening injuries.”

No charges will be filed because what the hey! stuff happens.


Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, how is it not criminal negligence to leave a loaded gun under the damned bed in a house open for real estate showings?

The polite inspect the merchandise.

Apparently there was a bullet in the chamber that struck Selena Lewis, 16, of Maiden, in the chest, said Capt. Joel Fish of the Catawba County Sheriff’s office. The girl died en route to the hospital or shortly after she arrived.

She had traveled to a home at 2818 Rocky Ford Road near Newton on Sunday with two 21-year-olds, one of them a friend. Lewis had recently met the driver, Clayton Webb Jr. He was interested in buying the rifle and was looking it over when it fired. Lewis was taking a picture of it.

The device appears to be capable of performing its primary function, as the young lady is now deceased.

Our neighbors in the great white north are known for being polite.

There is nothing looking at the politeness.

According to Sgt. David E. De Foor, the girl was shot in the head Wednesday morning after, 26-year-old Sirtravis Franklin, the child’s mother, and another person were looking at a pistol on the 500 block of East 28th Street when the gun went off.

Politeness goes to the movies.

A 58-year-old white male who was a theater patron fired multiple shots, Edmonson said. The shooter was acting alone and is deceased, he said. There were about 100 people inside at the time.

Three dead, seven injured, as of when I write this, just because he could.

More etiquette at the link.

One wonders, did he hold his pinky out when he lovingly caressed the trigger?

Tragically accidental politeness is the politest kind.

A 17-year-old Cassville teen was shot to death Monday night when a gun held by a 19-year-old Cassville man accidentally discharged, officials said.


Police said Winkers and several of his friends were shooting at targets at his house, using various types of weapons, including long guns and pistols.

. . . and, once more, a gun pulls its own trigger.

Politeness is relative.

Celebrate politely as you reach your last milestone.

Police say Perez was celebrating having turned 21 years old on Thursday when he grabbed a gun and began shooting. His family took the gun from him, but Perez later retrieved it and accidentally shot himself.

Yes, it did happen in Texas. Why do you ask?
