Over the course of the last several months, a very unflattering portrait has been painted of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and things are not looking any better this week.

We are a nation with a serious problem;  half of us don’t have any plan to protect innocent people from maniacal killers who adhere to the every whim of the demon voices in their heads.  Well, that isn’t technically accurate.  They do have a plan, but it only seems to involve putting up a sign that says “nobody anywhere around here is going to be able to stop a bad guy with a gun”.

Kentucky

Yeah, one of those.

So we have to rely on law enforcement to keep us safe.  Unfortunately, in the cases of Parkland shooter Nikolas Cruz, and Orlando mass murderer Omar Mateen, the authorities were fully aware of the possibilities, yet chose to do nothing.

And, in the case of Parkland, the retired police officer who was hired to protect the school hid outside.  

Now, another FBI agent is coming under fire after a wedding came under fire…from his own service weapon.

The attorney for the 24-year-old man shot by a backflip-performing FBI agent on a Denver dance floor says his client was hurt worse than was originally reported.

The Denver Channel interviewed Tom Reddington, an Amazon employee shot in the leg at Mile High Spirits and Distillery last weekend by what was later determined to be FBI agent Chase Bishop, 29, a D.C-based special agent visiting the city for training.

Reddington’s attorney, Frank Azar, said a witness to the shooting applied a tourniquet to the injured man’s leg so that he didn’t bleed out and that he will have to undergo vascular surgery to repair a major artery.

The victim said at first he thought the noise of Bishop’s gun was, “some drunk college kid being funny,” by setting off a firecracker but then, when he noticed his leg from his knee down was completely red, “That’s when it clicked in my head, ‘Oh, I’ve been shot.”

While officials with the FBI and Denver prosecutors are still looking into the incident, no charges have been filed and Bishop has since left the city although at least one witness to the shooting said the agent was drinking and did not come to Reddington’s assistance.

“He just peaced out,” said the witness, Cara Chancellor. “The guy he shot was directly in front of him, about 10-15 feet away. He had to have seen him.”

Thankfully, Reddington isn’t harboring any ill will toward Bishop, understanding that accidents do sometimes happen.

The FBI, however, will likely have a much different feeling about their agent’s poor judgement and lucky outcome.
