Yeah, I don' t want to double post, there was another thread about it: www.abovetopsecret.com...

The basic wrap:

- Gun wasn' t a real firearm, it' s a 8mm teargas firing replica, which is not lethal.
- Many party leaders and officials and unaffiliated analysts speculated this is some kind of desperate pre-election PR stunt
- The DPS party (the leader of which is Dogan) is basically a turkish party in Bulgaria, which finds itself in political isolation and resorts to sensationalism and creating ethnic tension to get any attention

BTW, please expand your article according to Breaking News standards and rules so it doesn' t get moved.

Here' s the video:



Attempted murder charges have been dropped, AFAIK, they wre now hooliganism charges.

Western media is very slow to update un purpose - sensationalism is hits - hits are revenue.

I have a billion sources in Bulgarian news sites, as I said western media prefers to make a sensation out of this, rather than update what has been known for many hours now.

Here's one devoted specially to the weapon, you can use google translate or just Chrome - www.dnes.bg...

There were 3 cartridges in the gun, 2 were simple blanks, 1 was a pepperspray (more effective than regular teargas (works on dogs too)) round

According to Bing it was a gas pistol. Yes he did get whooped pretty bad. He's lucky that's all he got...


Bulgarian police detained a man after he pointed a gas pistol at a Turkish minority party leader as he was delivering a speech at a party caucus in the capital Sofia on Saturday. No shots were fired. (Jan. 19)

Sounds like some PR stunt, or the "assassin" was just totally retarded.

When i watch that I get the feeling that that guy didnt take that gun in with him. Probably was given it by someone else and it was never meant to go off in the first place.

Yeah, it seems like he's surprised it didn't go off. His confused look is nearly as profound as the would be target...
