    Investigators have released videos, evidence, and transcripts related to a case from last year in which Pedro Ruiz III, in an attempt to achieve YouTube fame, had girlfriend Monalisa Perez fire a Desert Eagle at his chest. He assumed that the book he was holding would shield the bullet, but it went straight through and killed him. Ms. Perez pleaded guilty to second-degree manslaughter in December. Thanks cageymaru.

    He said he wanted to be “crazier” than famous stunt stars like the men behind MTV’s hit series, “Jackass.” “I may fail, but if I fail I want to die trying,” Ruiz said. “We’re all going to die anyways. It’s just a matter of how and when.” The couple bantered back and forth lightly in the videos, laughing and directing each other for what was supposed to be the first video on Ruiz’s YouTube channel.

    I don't really know shit about guns. But even I know that a Desert Eagle is no joke. Not a good move.

    I wouldnt let anyone shoot any gun at me intentionally. Even if the book was enough to stop a bullet, what if she missed the book? Shit happens!

    You think the guy would of been smart enough to first shoot the book to see what happens.



    You think this guy didn't shoot that windshield a million times himself before sitting behind it?

    It's good to see we haven't completely stopped Darwin.

    But he did so some reseach. Authorities recovered a book similar in size to the one used at the time of death that had been shot and recovered a .50 cal projectile that was stopped about halfway through the book. Obviously something was different between the two books...

    I chalk it up to death by dumbass. Pedro is an idiot as is everybody involved in that stupid idea for a stunt. If my kids ever try shit like that I'm kicking their ass's. Incredibly stupid. I'd punch Pedro's parents for breeding, and Pedro's girlfriends parents for raising a dumbass as well.

    This country is doomed.......

    I'm just going to leave this here. Pay attention to the video, especially the first minute.

    When you're looking to get out of the trailer park and YouTube is your ticket out of there, the more risky the better is it. More views and you get a lot more cash.

    Poor Pedro. He was just a victim in all this. Society failed him.






    /s

    I don't care if someone is urging me on, I wouldn't do that. No matter how persistent. He was an idiot, and she is a fucking moron. Stupidity. No fault on anyone but themselves.

    Jesus.

    That's some weapons grade autism right there.

    I'd like to pontificate on how stupid that was, but, damn, after sampling that video, words fail me. Could be an Aneurysm. I did get a nosebleed about 30 seconds in.

    Unfortunately this idiot is not eligible for a Darwin Award as he already reproduced. Why are all of the smart people not having children and all of the idiots popping babies out like crazy?

    IIRC, Physics was the difference. The first book was set on a stand and shot, so a lot of the energy from the projectile was transferred into moving the book (the book flew backwards when it was shot). When he held the book, it did not move.

    this is what you get when kids fail at school. No STEM education, and no common sense.

    Feels like I seen this before, oh well, sure is was before the investigation.
    I love guns but fucks like that who love to make their guns look like toys give responsible owners a bad name.
    Sorry to break the news to you Pedro, God isn't real, now you're rotting in the ground.

    im sorry but no.
    lets not make this into a misguided effort to vilify society and praise people whom without the current societal structure would have died in some other equally stupid way if he lived say 200 years ago which at that time would probably be him sitting around with a bunch of people from whatever town/village he would have been in and telling them to watch as he went and poked a bear/alligator/lion with a short stick.

    1. Don't park in the yard when you have a fucking garage.
    2. Never let a book slow down the progress of wiping out dumbasses.
    3. More spent on pistol and car than house.
    Not a pot to piss in or window to throw it out of.

    Darwin wins.

    Moron died doing something stupid and easily proven to be dangerous.

    I won't remember him, his name, or this event 1 year from now.

    Good job, moron.

    Oh come on, doing a test to see what happens when you shoot the book could take a whole 30 seconds to set up, who has time for that.

    From what I can tell, the trigger discipline was just fine, it was more the choice of target that was the issue.
