Shot in the back...the mark of a real man.
Exactly. Papi and Pedro have done a lot of work in the DR.
I don't know.
Some terrible people in our world
The odds of surviving a gunshot wound are approximately 80%, so the numbers are on his side, and the fact that he’s “out of danger” isn’t necessarily an indicator that a smaller caliber weapon was used.
If it’s a headshot, that’s a much different story, and the survival drops to like, 10%.
Back shot often means that either the shooter was a young(er) kid who just doesn’t care (as opposed to a “veteran” criminal), or that it wasn’t necessarily intended but something went wrong during the scrap. Often times, we see the two overlap.
Like you said, it’s always the mark of a coward.
Interesting stuff, supafly. Is this your line of work? Medical, EMT, etc?
Just my educational background, that’s all. I’ve helped on some projects for sentencing reform, though.
Personally, I was rather surprised re: the gunshot wound stat when I first heard it years ago, and the same goes for overdose victims. The fact is that most of these people survive. Some of the numbers will differ a bit depending on study/source, but in general the high majority end up alright, and I’m not sure that most people know this.
Either way, it’s still very scary stuff. No doubting that. We’re obviously hoping that Big Papi ends up well and falls in line with the numbers.
prayers to big papi. i just read he reportedly told the doctor please dont let me die im a good man. David Ortiz reportedly shot in Dominican Republic
Papi is that rare public figure where when you say you love him it's real. Get well soon you are a vital part of this ****ing family.
yeah...that vacation heaven..the D.R.
Come On Vacation, Leave On Defibrillation
But can you disrobe and get a massage in the DR without donut gobbling brick heads watching you through a secret camera?
I was thinking about taking a trip there as I had read some study that said that people in the DR were among the happiest in the world.
It doesn't mean that crime is non-existent but this doesn't seem random at all. Either someone had a beef or someone was trying to prove themselves for some sort of initiation or something. Or mental illness, though I'm of the opinion that if you try to harm someone else you're mentally-ill in someway regardless.
Since when did Pedro turn into fat albert
He’s been a bit pudgy for awhile, now. I’m guessing that you didn’t see much of the recent World Series, since he was part of the before/after crew that would break things down. Of course, you know what they say about the camera adding weight, too.
Some recent reports on Twitter suggest that this was not a robbery, but more of a targeted attack. I guess we’ll find out more, tomorrow.
Seeing Pedro cheering for Papi's life is actually some hard to see shyt for Mr. Herc Rock, I love them both so much and don't want any harm to come to them. I know the big man will be ok, get well soon Big Dave!
