    An oldie but a goody!
    You know, speaking quite frankly, (as I love to do ;)), the guy near the end is a hoot to listen to!
    "Show a little decorum, please..."
    REALLY?!?
    A little "decorum"?!?
    If I was a "normie" (i.e. non gore-loving weirdo), and someone I knew blew their brains out in front of me with a .357 magnum, the very LAST thing I'd have is any sense of "decorum".
    I'd be running in circles screaming, shitting, cursing, farting, puking, snotting and peeing myself.
    The paramedics would come to see him dead on the floor and me head-butting holes in the wall!!!

    Poor Budd, I hope he's found his peace...

    There is a band, Filter, that wrote a song about this. It's called "Hey man, nice shot."

    Hey man, nice shot...nice shot man!

    In real life this poor sap had a successful career ruined over politics. He was completely innocent of corruption, but committed suicide so his wife and kids could collect his pension. The next day after his suicide he was due to be impeached/fired as Treasurer, at which time his family would forfeit all retirement. But killing himself while in office, they collect everything. This was more an act of love. There is an entire documentary about Dwyer called Innocent Man. Check it out. It shows you how corrupt the system is.

    Did you know, some of the members of "Filter" were the road band for Trent Reznor?

    And one of the two promo videos for "Gave Up" (along with Marilyn Manson), which was filmed in the living room of the infamous house where Sharon Tate was murdered in 1969. Sharon Tate was killed in the Charles Manson murders. She was the Roman Polanski Girl at the time, and pregnant.

    One of the first actual violent human deaths I ever saw. Actually, I think it may have been the first. When I was in high school, my mom used to rent movies from the local video rental store back when those existed. I liked horror movies and they had the Faces of Death films. I don't remember which one it was but one of them has this incident on it. Anyway, my mom rented it for me thinking it was just another horror flick like Nightmare on Elm Street or whatever. So yeah, my mom unwittingly exposed me to seeing something like this for the first time.

    Oh yeah, and I think it's funny how the guy at the end goes "Don't panic. Show a little decorum." It's like dude these people just watched somebody blow their brains out right in front of them. Fuck your "decorum."

    Did the bullet lodge in his head? There should be brain matter on the background. No?
