The Darwin Awards salute the improvement of the human genome by honouring those who accidentally kill themselves in really stupid ways. Of necessity, this honour is generally bestowed posthumously. Anyone who wants to know more should visit the Darwin Awards.

From this website comes news of the latest candidate for the award:

  • The following mind-boggling attempt at a crime spree in Washington USA appeared to be the robber's first (and last), due to his lack of a previous record of violence, and his terminally stupid choices:

    1. His target was H&J Leather & Firearms, a gun shop specializing in handguns.

    2. The shop was full of customers - firearms customers.

    3. To enter the shop, the robber had to step around a marked police patrol car parked at the front door.

    4. A uniformed officer was standing at the counter, having coffee before work. Upon seeing the officer, the would-be robber announced a hold-up, and fired a few wild shots from a .22 target pistol. The officer and a clerk promptly returned fire, the police officer with a 9mm Glock 17, the clerk with a .50 Desert Eagle, assisted by several customers who also drew their guns, several of whom also fired, The robber was pronounced dead at the scene by Paramedics. Crime scene investigators located 47 expended cartridge cases in the shop. The subsequent autopsy revealed 23 gunshot wounds. Ballistics identified rounds from 7 different weapons. No one else was hurt in the exchange of fire.



    Here we are at the beginning of March and we already may have the 2005 winner of the Darwin Award. This guy is going to be hard to beat.
