Negligent homicide charge?

u/BonnieMcMurray 9d ago

In an ideal world, there would be: the driver is clearly negligent for having a cocked and loaded gun in his truck, pointed at a person. But I'll bet it will be handwaved away as "a terrible accident".

Cars and guns, the two things you can straight up kill people with and there's still a question as to whether you'll face any consequences. Hell, half the time people start blaming the person who died!

u/Stormwolf1O1 9d ago

I understand that accidents can happen, but storing any loaded firearm without having the safety on is just an accident waiting to happen. Perhaps it was just a one-time slip of the mind, and the gun owner does usually use the safety. But either way, they should face some kind of consequences and their ability to own guns should be reevaluated. If it happened once due to negligence, there's a chance this could happen again.

I don't know how much good it will do in the back of a truck, but I can see the logic in having it loaded in case you need it immediately (not condoning this).

Leaving it racked with the safety off is just... why.

This guy’s negligence shot himself. Even people riding horses back in the day had their long guns holstered. As to why that rifle wasn’t secured is beyond me.

Edit: The weapon and vehicle belonged to his friend but some form of negligence happened whether on one or both. May he rest in peace because either way I doubt anything will be learned from this horrible event.

I went to a call like that when I was a Paramedic. A guy left a 30-06 rifle on the seat. His kid climbed in the passenger side and discharged it. The round entered his right chest exiting his left armpit severing an artery. I had to reach in the exit wound and pinch off the artery to prevent more blood loss. Meanwhile, my partner was throwing up in the side yard. Good times.

Sorry everyone, I forgot to say that sadly the patient didn't make it.

It's dumb to have a rifle already racked with a round in the chamber while having it off safety. That is just asking to get shot or something.

u/they_have_bagels 9d ago

Yeah, it should be both unloaded and in "safe" for transportation. Ideally, it should further be in a locked rifle case, and out of reach (like, in the trunk of your car, but not in your truck bed). In Colorado I don't think it's legal to travel with a loaded rifle.

I'm not talking about handguns or concealed carry, mind you, just long guns.

u/5in1K 9d ago

In Michigan to transport a rifle it must be unloaded plus either taken down, in a case, or in the trunk but it always has to be unloaded. Absolutely crazy to me anyone would just toss a ready to fire, bullet chambered gun on the backseat of their car.

Silly question but are arteries easy to see with the naked eye?

573

u/various_convo7 9d ago edited 9d ago

some are. i've been able to clamp some visually in the leg or upper arms provided you gauze up enough but most times the flow of blood in those vessels are quite strong that you do it by feel, especially when trying to prevent excessive blood loss during a trauma case.

it gets messy real quick as those in the trauma bay or combat can attest so you rely on knowledge of landmarks to get the job done, clamp and move onto stabilization

93

u/spicyboi555 9d ago

How do you clamp it? Like there’s mini clips that go in there or does it have to be with your hand? Also even when you clamp it, if it’s a big artery, where does all the blood go? Like wouldn’t the blood pressure make it all back up the system and your artery would explode? Basically how does it end up staying in the body and returning back to the heart it it’s normal pathway is cut off?

83

u/dromaeovet 9d ago edited 9d ago Today I Learned

In an emergency, if you had a big gushing artery, you could hold it with your fingers if you had to. Instrument wise, you would clamp a vessel with a vascular clamp or a hemostat depending on the vessel size, and then you would most likely ligate the artery with suture. There are also metal clips that you can place. If you had a torn, rather than severed, artery, you could potentially try to repair it but it can be challenging and risky.

In most cases, there is enough collateral circulation that ligating the artery is safe for the part of the body that was formerly supplied by that artery. Collateral circulation is basically an alternate route for arterial blood to reach a part of the body - for example, you can ligate the femoral artery and enough arterial blood can get there by other vessels in order to supply the limb with oxygenated blood.

With regards to your other question, arterial flow is a big network, which means that ligating one artery is not enough to cause excessive pressure within the rest of the system. For lack of a better analogy, if you had a lawn sprinkler going and you blocked one of the sprinkler holes, the water would just come out all the other holes. On the other hand, if you had a hose and you tied off the end, then the hose would eventually explode because the pressure has nowhere else to go.

Thank you that totally explains my second question (and the first one too, but the sprinkler analogy is perfect)

125

u/nnaarr 9d ago

Not a doctor, but I imagine you just physically pinch it. It would stop coming out of that hole and just flow normally elsewhere. Basically like a tourniquet, except instead of using the whole wrapped limb to apply pressure you just apply it directly to the artery.

My anatomy lecturer mentioned that someone's femoral artery is about the same size as their 4th digit or ring finger. Stuffing someone's ring finger into a torn femoral artery and binding it in place somehow can save their life. Stuff upwards / towards the heart. The leg can handle a little blood loss more than the body can.

u/SpiteReady2513 9d ago

Omg having flashbacks to a show where crazy accidents were caught on Go Pro.

A bunch of back country mountain bikers were in Colombia (I believe), and one guy flipped over his bike handles which punctured his thigh, severing his femoral artery.

His friends are all trying to put pressure on the wound but the injured guy knows it’s not enough. He has the prescience of mind to put his hand into the wound and clamp his own artery shut.

The injury wasn’t conveyed well so an ambulance showed up first with no way to really stabilize him without blood.

They got lucky and a medevac helicopter with a doctor was doing a training run nearby and was able to get him to a hospital and save his life.

I get woozy every time I remember the guy digging around to clamp his own artery. Hard core.

I don't know how rampant the problem is, but I know from experience growing up that there are places where rednecks will illegally hunt on land that isn't theirs by doing this. Guns ready in the back, pickup just crawling down dirt roads until you see something within range. You can stop, grab the gun, aim and shoot in very little time. Whether you miss or you hit it and have to grab a carcass, you'll be gone in a few minutes at most either way.

That could be it, I don't know. That would make it even worse.

So will the owner of the dog and gun get arrested? Or it’s considered an accident?

If he was the passenger and someone else was in the truck, I'm thinking it wasn't the dog that shot him.

The person in the driver seat might have said that's what happened.

But if I was some dude in the middle of nowhere and wanted to get away with murder, I'd blame the dog if I could too.
