Hey, what can you do when something like this happens?
If the victim says it was an accident, then just write it up and forget about it! Sooner or later there will be a little payback, and the cops will be called to investigate another "accident"!
St. Petersburg man describes being shot five times as an accidentBy Andy Boyle, Times Staff Writer

ST. PETERSBURG — Police found 31-year-old Antonio Isom bleeding in the back yard of a home early Thursday.
He had been shot five times, he told police, but said it was an accident and didn't want to press charges.
Police went to 301 25th St. S after an anonymous caller reported that a man was bleeding. They found Isom about 3 a.m.
Isom told police that he had been with a friend, whom he didn't identify, and knocked on the back door of the house. Someone fired through the door at least 12 times, police said, most likely with an assault rifle.
Isom told police the man who shot him is named Pepe Newsome. He couldn't be found.
Cocaine and drug paraphernalia were found inside the house, police said.
"Mr. Isom's statements are being taken with some degree of suspicion," said police spokesman Mike Puetz.
Gee, I wonder what the give away was that the story just might not be truthful? I guess it was the good old fashioned "police instinct" that most police seem to have now days! I have a feeling that one of the officers figured it was fairly hard to "accidentally" get shot by someone 5 times!
Like I said, what can they do? if the guy doesn't want to file charges, so be it!
Let's get some fresh coffee and sit outside for a bit. We can discuss the true meaning of "accidentally"...!
