Sorry about that...

Mind-boggling stupidity from France...

"Three people including a child were in a critical condition today after live bullets were used instead of blanks during a French special forces open day, army and regional officials said. Sixteen people, 15 of them civilians, were injured in the bizarre incident, as parachutists from a marines parachute regiment demonstrated to the public the techniques involved in hostage liberation exercises. "

It looks like the live ammo only went into one soldier's gun - and he is now being investigated to find out if a criminal act has been committed.

How can this sort of shit happen? I mean, putting real live ammo in a gun during a public demonstration? Where were the checks, and double checks, and triple checks before they went through with the demo?

Everyone involved should be charged with something... this is truly horrible.
