This is Providence/Chaos of Conflict


If you haven’t seen the reports about the murder suicide at a Chicago hospital yesterday, you might have missed this story:

When we talk about the chaos/luck/providence of defensive encounters, this is a prime example of what we mean. The officer took a bullet that could have possibly shattered his pelvis, rendering him immobile, on slide of his service weapon. The damage the firearm took also rendered it inoperable, but it saved him from being a sitting duck.
