He Put on a Bulletproof Vest and Asked a Friend to Shoot Him. She Missed Her Mark.
The Blaze ^ | 15 May 2014 | Dave Urbanski

Posted on 05/15/2014 9:32:46 AM PDT by mandaladon

Blake Randall Wardell, 25, was congregating with friends in a house’s garage in the wee hours of the morning when he donned a bulletproof vest. Then Wardell asked his 18-year-old friend Taylor Ann Kelly to shoot him, according to the Anderson County Sheriff’s Office in South Carolina.

Kelly complied. But the small-caliber bullet hit above the kevlar portion of the vest and then went into Wardell’s heart, killing him, Anderson County Deputy Coroner Don McCown told WYFF-TV in Greenville.

CPR was being attempted on Wardell when authorities arrived at the scene about 2:40 a.m; EMS personnel confirmed Wardell was dead.

Next time, say "shoot the vest."

When looking for help to perform this task 2 rules should apply:

1) Make sure your helper knows how to shoot, and
2) Make sure your helper is not mad at you

Step 3. Insert steel plate

Step 4, shoot center mass of plate. You still may be killed by a ricochet, but everybody can have a laugh.

Didn’t these idiots ever learn that a gun is not a toy? Apparently it took a Darwin Award to impress that lesson upon them.

At least she gunned down her own kind, not some innocent stranger who might have been driving by.

How many hours in a public school does it take to become this stupid?

“Does she get tried for ANYTHING? ? ? ?

She did what he asked.

Why waste court time on a successful Darwin Award winner?

This is America, where the citizen is a sovereign citizen, not the property of the King. Nor is the American citizen the property of the state(well, one hopes not).

Therefore, the suicide of a citizen is not an issue for government, as it is the citizen making a decision about his own life.

Butt out, lawyers!

And leave the girl alone, as she is obviously as case of acting while blond.

Only halfway. You have to be stupid to shoot a friend, even under the described circumstances. She’s still above ground and that gene pool may yet replicate.

If she had chewed a pop-tart into the shape of a gun, she would have had hell to pay.

What a class act. Probably considered a real prize in her neck of the hood.

Never heard of it. Is that a particular brand?

I’m fond of black rums myself which generally have a calming effect very unlike tequila.
