Yeah, of course it was accidental

A Thai politician has ‘accidentally’ shot and killed his ex-wife while dining at a restaurant with her…yeah..I believe him, he’s a politician after all:

A Thai politician accidentally shot and killed his former wife and personal secretary with a submachine gun in a restaurant in northern Thailand, local police said Monday.

Senator Boonsong Kowawisarat was dining with Chanakarn Detkard and four others on Sunday when he took out an Uzi 9mm sub-machine gun, police said.

“Senator Boonsong’s gun was accidentally fired off while he was trying to keep his pistol into its case. The shot went straight into his secretary who was having dinner,” Police Lt. Colonel Choosak Pulsawat told CNN.

The police officer said that Boonsong had been separated from his wife for a while but they were currently living together.

He added that Boonsong had permission to own such a weapon.

Police have initially charged Boonsong with causing death by negligence but he cannot be arrested while the Thai parliament is in session — unless the parliament rules otherwise.

The Bangkok Post said the charge carries a maximum sentence of 10 years imprisonment and a 20,000 baht fine (US$640).

The newspaper said that Boonsong was so shocked by the shooting that he was unable to take Chanakarn to hospital.

It is not clear why he was armed, why he took the weapon into the restaurant or whether he knew the gun was loaded.

Hmmm…bet he cops to the fine.

    The services of a few spin merchants & a few healthy backhanders will turn this into a clearcut case of suicide.

    I’m sure that there are a few nutters here who would just love the opportunity to sport an Uzi as an everyday fashion accessory.

  • Seems to me

    Seems to me that others at the table MIGHT just MIGHT have actually taken her to hospital. Interesting that they say he was unable to take her…..bad reporting???? He was being sat on by a bunch of cops/security/her friends??? More to this story seems to me.

    Maybe he thought as he was going to see the latest Batman movie after dinner he’s better be prepared….??

    Perhaps he was doing an Ozzie Haka, you know, when the pricks pretend to look for their wallet.
