More of the same...

Tennessee teen allegedly shot in head during internet challenge, officials say

A new internet fad is reportedly responsible for a shooting in Tennessee that critically injured a teen and led to an arrest.

Sherman Lackland, 21, was at E’s 24 Hour Cafe in Memphis on Thursday morning when he and two others were playing the “No Lackin Challenge,” according to Fox 19, citing a police affidavit.

The game, according to the document, is when “people get into fake arguments” and draw their guns at one another.

But Thursday’s incident ran afoul when Lackland allegedly fired his handgun by accident, shooting his 17-year-old friend in the right side of his head, according to the affidavit. Police said the teen was brought to the hospital in critical condition and was eventually “downgraded to extremely critical.”

Lackland reportedly did not have a carry permit for the weapon.

A witness on the scene recalled hearing the gun go off and said Lackland was emotional, Fox 19 reported.

"A real loud bang, then I see the guy across from him fall in the floor,” Thomas Fitzpatrick, who was at the restaurant at the time, said. "He started grabbing him and telling him to get up and then he was kind of mad and was swinging stools and stuff.”

Lackland was arrested and charged with aggravated assault, reckless endangerment and unlawful possession of a weapon, police said.

Challenge-type games have long been fueled by internet exposure. One of the most recent and more highly publicized has been the Tide pod challenge. Videos on social media are showing kids biting into brightly colored liquid laundry detergent packets. Or cooking them, ingesting them and spitting up soap.

According to The Washington Post, last year U.S. poison control centers received reports of more than 10,500 children younger than 5 who were exposed to the capsules. The same year, nearly 220 teens were reportedly exposed, and about 25 percent of those cases were intentional, the paper said, citing data from the American Association of Poison Control Centers.

The Post's article, published earlier this month, said that there have been close to 40 reported cases among teenagers so far in 2018 — half of them intentional.

Exposed?  You are are exposed to disease, radiation, etc. These knuckleheads are making a choice.

The morons pulling guns in public are going to get bystanders killed. Their parents need beat about the head and shoulders with a 2x4.

I find the whole Tide capsule thing interesting. I wonder if swallowing one of those with, say, a pair of socks would result in clean socks? Might be a great way to 'rinse out a few things' when traveling and such. It could even be a little public service; out to dinner with friends and someone spills something on his tie? No problem- I can 'freshen' that right up for you.....

This is what happens when phone booths are removed from the young peoples habitat. They adapt to new things on their own.
http://mentalfloss.com/article/30270/cramming-people-thing-photo-history A perfectly good outlet for rambunctiousness is removed from their landscape, and without adult guidance to safer stupid stuff, they are allowed to come up with stupid stuff on their own. A perfect recipe for detergent eating, fake gun play, extended childhood, etc. If only more parents or teachers would tell their kids not to eat live goldfish then we wouldn't be in this mess when they decide to rebel.  ::)

Finding a phone booth is hard, stuffing 17 or 18 Russians into a car, not so much.

More news about the stupidity of the current crop of social media idiots.

There you go, fry those Tide pods up in a pan and get em nice a melty before you eat em.

Mom and dad will wonder where all of their (relatively) expensive pods have gone. You know that these teens aren't buying those pods themselves.

If they develop autism from eating detergent pods they can clean them up with a bleach chaser.

Man steals car, then calls owner for help starting it, police say



A Minnesota man has been arrested after allegedly stealing a car from a Walmart parking lot, then calling the owner less than two hours later for help starting the vehicle.

Edward Leroy Wilson, 37, is suspected of sneaking into the car after its owner turned it on remotely from within the Sartell, Minn., store, the St. Cloud Times reported.

The woman who owns the vehicle apparently wanted to warm it up Monday night in frigid evening temperatures, but by the time she went to the parking lot, the car was gone.
Police say Wilson had driven the vehicle more than an hour away, but ran into trouble restarting the car after he had parked it.

About 10:30 p.m. -- less than two hours after surveillance images showed the car leaving the lot --  the owner received a call from a woman who told her that a man was asking questions about the vehicle, the St. Cloud Times reported.

Wilson, who gave a fake name, then spoke to the owner directly, and asked if she could find someone to start the car for him, police said.

Officers responding to a suspicious person call identified Wilson and the stolen vehicle during Wilson's conversation with the owner, according to local reports, and took Wilson into custody.
He reportedly admitted to the crime and told officers "he knew it was not a good idea to get the vehicle," according to a criminal complaint filed against him.

Pretty crazy!

Must be some improperly installed after-market remote starter.  Properly designed/installed ones will kill the engine the moment the car is moved if the key is not present.

She probably didn't lock the doors either  ::)

Stupidity knows no bounds....http://www.kfvs12.com/story/37857192/condom-snorting-challenge-is-the-latest-dangerous-trend-to-go-viral-on-the-internet


"The internet has seen the "Tide Pod challenge" and the "cinnamon challenge," but the most recent online challenge [condom snorting] is dangerous [...]"

Hello?  As if eating washing machine detergent is somehow not dangerous in comparison??

What is with these stupid people???  Part of me wishes they would all take the "arsenic challenge" and then maybe it will all end?
