On your site today, I came across this video of a toddler baby shooting a man. That's right, a video of a toddler waving a big old gun and then KABLAM!, he shoots a grown man right in the gut. WTF, YouTube? Of course, I then watched the video intently about ten hundred times in a row and processed it into about 422 stream-of-conscious questions like why, why, why, how, and why?
Take a watch (and a look at my questions) after the jump.
The notes on the video without any source information say:
This incident took place recently in Halab, Syria in 2008. The two years old kid was playing with his father's (33 years old) gun when he accidently [sic] fired a bullet hitting the father in the heart and killing him immediately (according to the resources).
Are we supposed to believe that, be content with that, make sense of that? I mean, who would let a toddler play with a loaded gun in the first place? Did the kid really find the gun tucked under the table? Or pull it out of his dad's waistband when his dad was distracted by the dance scene at the party? And who the hell sat there filming this whole thing? That's possibly the even freakier question.
YouTube, is this video for real? It sure looks real -- the way the gun lights up upon firing looks really real! Look how the gun's throwback drops the toddler to the ground! Look how the guy/dad grabs his stomach and appears to be suddenly soaked in blood! It's truly horrifying.
Insanely Worried Now, Thanks to YouTube
