If you’re a klutz then armed robbery may not be for you.

Or you may end up like the fellow in this news item:

Cameron Sands, 19, of Fort Worth kicked in the door of the house and then shot himself in the stomach as he pulled a gun out of his pants to shoot the homeowner, Grand Prairie police said.  The homeowner was not injured.

After Mr. Sands shot himself, he dropped the gun and ran out of the home.  Police found his body around 5:30 a.m. in the driveway of the home in the 2800 block Garden Grove Road, said Lt. John Brimmer, a Grand Prairie police spokesman.

“This is the first that I’ve heard of a robbery suspect killing himself as he is drawing a gun out of his waist band,” Lt. Brimmer said. “The criminal evidence points to that. It certainly isn’t common.”

I know I shouldn’t laugh at a story like this, but I couldn’t help myself.

  1. “Oh, man. Oh, wow. Wow! Thank you! THANK YOU! Ha ha. Thanks, yo.

    Um, I have to start off by thanking God! Thanks God! Yo, this for you! Thank you for blessing me with this tonight! My Mum and Pops! Without them, I couldn’t have been here tonight…

    There’s just so many people to thank, but I think most of all, I just want to thank young punks around the world that, you know, buy and… and… or steal guns and try to bust a cap upside a playa’s face, knowwhatimean? And for people who thought it was gangsta to hide a piece in a playa’s pants. Thanks for keepin’ it real, for realz!

    So, ye. That’s all, fools! PEACE OUT, DARWIN AWARDS! FORT WORTH REPRESENT!”

  2. I got no problem laughing at that at all.  Although, I think that if it was my house, I wouldn’t be able to stop laughing long enough to call the police right away, so that might end up looking suspicious.  smile

    Ow.. My side still hurts smile
