Thug Does Cops A Favor And Shoots Himself...

...instead of shooting them! Police approached a man at an Oakland BART (train) station to tell him to put out a cigarette he was smoking. During the encounter the guy attempts to draw a handgun from his waistband. Bang goes the gun and the guy shot himself. Police shot him with a TASER and subdued him a split second after the shot. Turned out the guy was wanted on a felony warrant. Reportedly a third party video showed it all. More here.

Quick note on TASERs: Mind you that TASER is the proper way to write that as it is an acronym and that is the way the company writes it. See this as to why that is the name of said device.

All the best,
Glenn B
