Doofus Of The Day #1,055

I don’t normally make Doofus awards to those who are killed as the result of doing something stupid.  However, in this case, I’ll make an exception.

A carjacker died after he accidentally blasted himself in the chest while trying to smash a window with the butt of his shotgun, an inquest has heard.

Officers investigating the death of Reece Ramsey-Johnson said they were satisfied there was ‘no third party involvement’ as they closed the probe into his killing.

. . .

Video footage taken at the time showed another masked man shouting ‘he’s shot himself — he’s f*****g shot himself’ as he crouched over Mr Ramsey-Johnson’s dying body.

There’s more at the link.

A car-jacker removes himself from the gene pool through being utterly dumb.  Sounds like a reasonable outcome to me!



  1. In times past the English have been known to dig up the corpse who died before justice could be done, have a trial, and mete out punishment. I'm somewhat surprised that they did not do so in this case, what with their hypersensitivity to weapons of any kind. He'd already furnished one of the steps of being drawn and quartered himself.
