Yea fire lethal stray rounds into the air to try to charge someone with possession. I usually stand by police but what the fvck man?!
@Atom bomb baby, it’s not lethal. #mythbusters
@Vaston, if I remember the episode correctly it's only not lethal if the bullets are fired straight up in the air. At an angle was still dangerous
@Vaston, It depends on the angle of fire. If fired straight up, the bullet won't kill anyone when it comes back down. Its terminal velocity isn't high enough. However, if fired at a relatively low angle, the bullet retains much of its momentum, and can certainly cause death if it hits someone.
@RetardedGyarados, and what direction is the balloon with drugs?
@Vaston, definitely not a perfect 90 degree angle and people get killed by strays all the time especially on celebratory holidays. Either way is it really fvcking necessary to fire in the air like that to land what I assume would be a misdemeanor drug charge.
@Atom bomb baby, depending on what was in it and how much, could be charged with dealing which is a much worse charge
@theshadosnipe, yea fair enough, still though if it was enough to be lifted by two balloons the guy probably wasn't a kingpin haha
@RetardedGyarados, Mythbusters did two tests on this. And there is medical pictures of bullets hitting people in the head that were fired up. Yeah they aren't as dangerous if fired "straight up" however if even at a slight angle they still hold lethal potential and the likely hood of firing at a perfect 90° angle is difficult. Besides it's illegal to discharge a weapon into the air. Because of the chance of it killing someone.
@RetardedGyarados, not exactly accurate. If fired vertically it is unlikely, but still possible to kill someone. Rifle bullet can have terminal velocity of 300 ft per second. Velocity to puncture skin is between 200 and 350 ft per second. So while unlikely it is possible
That is fvcking brilliant
GUYS I GOT TO FEED A GIRAFFE TODAY!!
@Tipathearrow, I'm so jealous
I want to know if he actually shot the balloons and got the stash or if he missed or only hit one and it flew too far for him to find
@ajr12100, a lot of these gifs are open ended, there should be a site that tells the follow up stories of what happened...
@ajr12100, officers have shjt aim so I'm going to say no
@LawyeredApe, tell that to Walter Scott
(I'm almost sorry for this joke but I'm also a terrible person so...)
@ajr12100, for anyone who doesn't know I'll save you a google- Walter Scott was a 50 year old black guy who was shot in the back by an officer a few years back- I just saw on the news the other week (thus it came to mind here) the officer plead guilty after a video showed Scott was walking away and was unarmed
@ajr12100, *unarmed, lol
@Imaginaut, oops... that would've been interesting, guy walks away with a few bullet holes but nah, he's totally fine
@ajr12100, yeah, but then you turn around and there's a story of 7 officers unloading 40 rounds at a perpetrator and only hitting a kid with a ricochet shot.
This gives new definition to the meaning of "high"
The sequel to UP is looking intense
Someone in Antarctica got a surprise later that year.
99 red balloons floating in the summer sky
Panic bells, it's red alert
There's something here from somewhere else
The war machine springs to life
Opens up one eager eye
Focusing it on the sky
Where 99 red balloons go by.
When you need the raise so you try to prove they are guilty by shooting bullets into the air
Someone is gona get the best suprize ever either drugs or death
