On February 3, 1990, a Renton (Seattle area) man tried to commit a
robbery. This was probably his first attempt, as suggested by his
lackof a record of violent crime, and by his terminally stupid choice:

1. The target was H&J Leather & Firearms, a gunshop;

2. The shop was full of customers, in a state where a substantial
fraction of the adult population is licensed to carry concealed
handguns in public places;

3. To enter the shop, he had to step around a marked King County
Police patrol car parked at the front door;

4. An officer in uniform was standing next to the counter, having
coffee before reporting to duty.

Upon seeing the officer, the would-be robber announced a holdup and
fired a few wild shots. The officer and a clerk promptly returned
fire, removing him from the gene pool. Several other customers also
drew their guns, but didn't fire. No one else was hurt.

Jacques LeFevrier left nothing to chance when he decided to commit
suicide. He stood at the top of a tall cliff and tied a noose around
his neck. He tied the other end of the rope to a large rock. He drank
some poison and set fire to his clothes. He even tried to shoot
himself at the last moment. He jumped and fired the pistol. The
bullet missed him and cut through the rope above him. Free of the
threat of hanging, he plunged into the sea. The sudden dunking
extinguished the flames and made him vomit the poison. He was dragged
out of the water by a kind fisherman and was taken to hospital, where
he died ... of exposure!!!
