Dumb Thug Dies Testing Bulletproof Vest Print E-mail

Darnell Mitchell rebelled against common sense by asking his two friends to shoot him while wearing a bulletproof vest. Consequently, he got shot and killed and his buddies could serve life imprisonment sentences for first degree murder charges.

According to the Baltimore Sun, "Three people stood in the basement of a Westport home before 4 a.m. Wednesday to film a stunt in which they planned to test a bulletproof vest. Darnell Mitchell put it on, looked into a video camera and proclaimed himself ready to take "deuce deuce in the chest."

Apparently, Darnell's friends had poor aim and lacked a proper understanding of gun safety measures. The two shooters missed Darnell's vest completely with fatal blows to his head. 

"But," as reported by the Baltimore Sun, "police said, Mark Ramiro missed the body armor when he pulled the trigger on the .22 caliber handgun, and he now faces murder charges in the 28-year-old's death. The video ends as Ramiro dropped the gun and both friends rushed to Mitchell's aid. They drove from Ramiro's apartment in the 2200 block of Cedley St. to University of Maryland Medical Center, where Mitchell was pronounced dead within minutes, police said."

The incident had been taped on a video recorder to post later on YouTube. The video instead will be used against the two assailants in their upcoming courtroom trials.
