Why don't they tell us what the DVD was of?
Women gone wild?, Men of cellblock seven?

I am glad he is okay, I just want to know what he was doing with a DVD in his pocket at a waffle house, and was he on duty at the time?

It was a firefighter's training DVD.

The DVD was "a gift from a friend who had recorded a show about fire extinguishers."

It's too bad though that he probably can't replace the DVD and will have to wait for the show to become a rerun.

I am surprised the DVD was so strong. I have broken them with my hand before. Something I would warn anyone from doing without protective goggles.

The bullet grazed the arm of one of the guys in the altercation went thru a glass window and THEN hit the CD in the guys pocket. It gave him a bruise - that was all. He got lucky - but the grain count in the bullet was prob pretty low.

If they can stop bullets, how come I keep getting broken DVDs from Netflix?

Come on, I know my neighborhood is bad but there is NO WAY that there are bullets constantly flying through my mailman's bag - well, at least NOT constantly!

The movie was Bite The Bullet. I bet he had to pay for the movie. Blockbuster is like that.
