A failed assassination attempt on Bulgarian politician Ahmed Dogan

January 20th, 2013 at 5:07 pm by David Farrar

A commenter posted this to general debate, and I thought worth sharing wider. Incredible footage. Can’t totally blame the locals for putting the boot into the wannabe assassin. At least he didn’t get shot.

It seems he tried to fire twice and the gun jammed. Chilling.

    If that happened here he’d take, and win, a police brutality case. How far have we come from decency!

    It was some sort of political theatre. the gun fires pepper spray and wouldn’t have killed him

    Andrei, yes it was a gas pistol but (presuming it wasn’t modified) they can fire gas canisters and fire blanks. Either of which when fired at your face from about 20cm away I think could be lethal. But then it does raise the question of why a regular hand gun wasn’t used (perhaps the assassin was an amateur and thought it was a regular handgun?), or indeed there could be other elements. Your suggestion reminds me of the Tim Robbins movie Bob Roberts.
