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.

i thought it was a type of fishing boat lolhttp://www.allpoetry.com/Grunts%20Girl
We dallied under
Vine maples and sapling alders
Searched for lady slippers
Found blackberry riots and
An old skid road
Brought ghost ferns and
Hollows filled with
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

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