Darwin: 1 Man: 0 – Teenager “Accidentally” Kills Himself Trying To Rob A House

The Idiot’s Guide To BreathingYou might say he had one shot.. and he blew it.

I’m sure we’ve all met people who we’re SURE would get eaten by a hippo or butchered by a walrus were it not for our global societies subsidizing stupidity.

Here is a case in point:

A 19-year-old man accidentally shot and killed himself Tuesday morning while he was attempting to rob a Grand Prairie home, authorities said.

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.”

The Tarrant County Medical Examiner has ruled the death an accident.

Home invasions are scary things indeed. So I can’t feel TOO bad for laughing at what normally should be a much less laughable headline. Pat yourself on the back today… You’re almost certainly doing better than at least one person today.

I wish every violent criminal was stupid enough to kill themselves during the commission of their crimes.

This proves gun control works, disarm the citizens and let the criminals kill themselves!

He didn’t actually die from the gunshot. He died of a fatal dose of irony.

I was at a corporate event and legal was giving us a law update. This was a year and a half ago when they updated the castle doctrine law to encompass your vehicle or other personal space, tent, pavilion, whatever.

At a corporate event we all cheered. It’s moments like this that make me love Texas.

This is why driveways should be banned. He died ON the driveway.

How sad :(

He was only 19….had a whole life of drugs, violence, and social burdening ahead of him.
