A Gathering of geniuses..

Participant at KKK initiation wounded after shots fired into sky
Monday, November 24, 2003 Posted: 2:31 PM EST (1931 GMT)






JOHNSON CITY, Tennessee (AP) -- A bullet fired in the air during a Ku Klux Klan initiation ceremony came down and struck a participant in the head, critically injuring him, authorities said.

Gregory Allen Freeman, 45, was charged with aggravated assault and reckless endangerment in the Saturday night incident that wounded Jeffery S. Murr, 24.

About 10 people, including two children, had gathered for the ceremony. The man who was being initiated was blindfolded, tied with a noose to a tree and shot with paintball guns as Freeman fired a pistol in the air to provide the sound of real gunfire, Sheriff Fred Phillips said.

A bullet struck Murr on the top of the head and exited at the bottom of his skull, authorities said.

Freeman fled the ceremony but was arrested near his home, authorities said. He was released on $7,500 bail.

This also happens in LA on New Year's eve. (It has nothing to do with the Klan)

You're right, it partly has to do with the intellect of people who use guns for amusement.

Oh, that's just beautiful. .

As for the rest of the story.... Morons.

Course, as pointed out already, this is the KKK we're talking about here...pretty obvious they aren't the brightest crayons in the box.

I honestly can't understand how the Klan still exists.
