Re: Failed assassination attempt, Bulgarian party leader escapes death
The point is, even if it is not staged but real, then why on earth did the attacker take so much time?
Its common sense, when you are going to commit something of this sort in a public place, you have to act fast. The clown aimed the gun as if only to draw everyone's attention, but nothing further. He might have got a clean shot even two steps further back without coming within the senator's arm range.
Clearly, whether the attacker be an amateur with an agenda or set up by some external agent simply to prove a point; the man with the gun had all the time to pull the trigger.
It was a clean hit for anyone with a mission. Even Travis Bickle wouldn't miss.
“What a fate: to be condemned to work for a firm where the slightest negligence at once gave rise to the gravest suspicion! Were all the employees nothing but a bunch of scoundrels, was there not among them one single loyal devoted man who, had he wasted only an hour or so of the firm's time in the morning, was so tormented by conscience as to be driven out of his mind and actually incapable of leaving his bed?”
