Hey, only going off of what Bulgarians have been shouting all over the internet all day.

wellreadneck: The vigilante mob was only slightly less disturbing than the assassination attempt.


Don't be a pussy.

That gun looks like a pea shooter.


No, his pee shooter is obscured by the podium.

Later:

Did you see me knock the would be assassin down?
You didn't knock him down.
Well, I was the first one to hit him with an umbrella.

KangTheMad: He did, you could hear the click of the trigger being pulled if you up the volume, plus if you watch closely,you can see the pistol barrel jerk to the assassin's right as he yanks on the trigger. It was a misfire however.


Back and to the right?

A total of three blank cartridges were discovered in the gas pistol used in Saturday's assault against Bulgarian ethnic Turkish politician Ahmed Dogan, according to experts.

On the gas pistol, I wondered why he was so close. Remember that TV show that had some 'I need a hero' theme song from the 80's. The up and coming male lead put a blank pistol to his temple and pulled the trigger as some sort of self-depreciating joke. That was enough to kill him.

Having said that this is a great way to get empathy on national tv, for an opposition leader at that. I don't pretend to know, but I would bet Bulgarian black ops have better ways to kill people then with gas pistols while on national tv.

prisoner6: Waiting for the Bud Dwyer suicide video. Probably scrubbed from the net now. Saw it live with no editing. Amazing and interesting from a medical standpoint.


I still have a visceral *squick* reaction when I hear his name. The part that creeped me out was not the actual deed, but the impromptu handing out of packages and instructions beforehand. No suicide is ever rational, but the final, precise order that most put into their final plan, boggles the mind.

Probably one of the most honest and explicit things you will ever see in your life. NSFW or life if you are afraid of blood, gore or death.

A real assassin would have shot him several times while approaching.


No, a GOOD assassin would have shot him several times. Everyone here is assuming that this guy was some kind of commando or something; but remember, al-Qaeda at one time had a training camp for suicide jihadis. Think about that for a minute: A TRAINING camp for someone who was making a one-way mission. This kind of job is somewhat similar. If the goal is to have someone walk up and put a gun to the target's head in full view of his security detachment, you're not going to get the top soldiers to volunteer, the James Bonds or Jason Bournes. You're going to get some douchebag who can barely remember to pull the trigger after aiming and not before.

I know the general theory is that terrorists and insurgents are some kind of super-villain/Dr. No style ultra criminals; but really, they're dumbass thugs. Emphasis on the dumb.

Or a lone crazy. If he had the backing of anyone with any street cred he would have had managed to get a gun with real lead projectiles.

Proof that guns do not kill people.

Worst assassin ever! He even brought gloves and left them in his pocket. I would say this was a movie inspired hitman and I am glad the movies taught him all the wrong stuff.

Yup, this one was a one-way. No way after doing the deed was he going to be able to get out. Be curious to find out what kind of backstory there is on him.

ExcaliburPrime111: I think we have become so desensitized to events and so utterly suspicious of everything that the "this is fake" alarm bells ring prominently no matter what the situation is. Frankly, I believe this was a genuine assassination attempt and the politician is VERY LUCKY to be alive today.

I found the roughing up the would-be assassin had at the end unnecessary and somewhat disturbing, but I think too many posts make him out to be the victim, in typical libtard fashion. The guy almost killed their party leader - I wouldn't get a few licks in, but I am not too surprised that a few people vented some frustration on him. In any case, he is alive, and hopefully will be interrogated and can give us some idea about the motive for this crime, as well as who might have hired him (if indeed he was hired to do this.)

Why would an ethnic Turk would-be assassin go after an ethnic Turk politician? Speculation abounds. One theory is that he was hired to do it. Another theory is that the 25-year old is a "second-generation ethnic Turk" who has a political ax to grind against the ethnic Turks. Another possibility is that he is just a hooligan who wanted 15 min of fame. In any case, now that he has been captured, hopefully some answers will be forthcoming.

Awesome video.


Shenanigans wraped in a mystery surrounded by a conundrum covered in an inegma whistling a riddle.
Simple.

You mean the show "Cover Up" where Jon-Erik Hexum played a model who also fought crime/terrorists.

And yes, he put a "starting pistol" up to his temple and fired, as a joke. You know? Jokes.

Well, at that range, the cotton wadding was propelled into his brain. End of story.

Don't try this at home, kids.
