    Cop accidentally shoots 2

    Cop accidentally shoots 2


    I believe this is South Africa.

    A policeman's bid to save his colleague from the wrath of a panga-wielding man went awry on Tuesday when he missed the man and shot and injured his colleague and a woman in Durban.

    Police spokesperson Thulani Mkhize said the two policemen had been sent to a Wentworth house to investigate a complaint about the presence of a mentally unstable man.

    When the officers arrived on the scene a man threatened them with a panga. A struggle ensued and one of the policemen fired a shot at the man and missed.

    The bullet struck a woman who was walking on the other side of Calvert Street in Wentworth. His second shot struck his colleague.

    Witnesses said the mentally unstable man fled and was later apprehended.

    It was not immediately known why the two policemen had been sent to apprehend the man.

    A Netcare spokesperson said both the woman and policeman were shot in the right leg above the knee.

    Mkhize said a decision would be taken on Wednesday as to what action would be taken against the policeman.

    http://www.allpoetry.com/Grunts%20Girl

    We dallied under
    Vine maples and sapling alders
    Searched for lady slippers
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and
    Desiccated branches

    An old skid road
    Brought ghost ferns and
    Hollows filled with
    Skunk cabbage
    While waves wrapped
    Intricate lacings of weeds
    'Round mule spinners

    His cyanotic eyes
    Were hard enough to make
    The sun turn tail and
    Tender enough to attract me
    To his world of illusion

    It can be either a fishing boat, a fish, or something closely resembling a machete. While the image of the guy wielding a small fish is funny and distinctly Monty Python-ish, somehow I think he was carrying a big ass knife. (I would have gone for the boat, but it would be just too unwieldy and alltogether impractical.)

    Gotta watch the crossfire.

    Am I wrong for thinking this would have been better if there was a video of the incident?
