Thinning the Herd, Part 219 
by Lenka Reznicek [permalink] 
Jeffrey S. Murr, a 24-year-old Tennessee Ku Klux Klan inductee, was critically injured Saturday when a bullet fired into to the sky arced downwards and pierced his skull. The initiation - a mock lynching - consisted of tying Murr blindfolded to a tree with a noose and shooting him a barrage of paintball ammo. An older Klansman, 45-year old Gregory Allan Freeman, had fired the bullets into the air to provide "sound effects."

Poor kid: he'll never get to appear on the Jerry Springer Show wearing an old bedsheet.
