DEA agent Lee Paige shooting himself in the leg

Once you are done laughing at the video, head over to The Smoking Gun (irony) and read about Mr. Paige’s lawsuit against the government for leaking the video. Encouraging a mentality like Mr. Paige’s – one where you can be a complete dumbass and get paid money for it – is a major factor in the degradation of the quality of life in America.

Are you really that weak Mr. Paige? You pulled a dumbass move by shooting yourself on video camera and now you want it buried? Own up, man up, toughen up. You’re supposed to be acting like a grown up. Have you learned anything from your dumb mistake? Why do you still have a job protecting Americans from themselves in the biggest nanny organization in a nation of whining babies? You’ve proved you can’t handle the responsibility.

Sign up for a monastery somewhere and take a few years to discover what true character is. Come on back, watch the video with the rest of us and then prove you’ve changed for the better. Grow up Lee Paige. A real professional would never make a statement like “I am the only one in this room professional enough to . . . (insert whatever here)” – that’s a sign of arrogance not professionalism.

Wow Trevor.. not that I do not agree with you about this incident… but this thing went down several years ago.

I would not want this guy on my force.. I would not want him in my home armed.. period.  But your 100% right that he is weak minded fool in thinking he was a victom of blunt jokes etc..

When I saw the video for the first time.. sent to me by the chief of the police force I work with in Utah part time.. I had the very same thoughts as you… its pitiful that a dumbass got filmed in the first place when you shot your own weapon fooling around…

I was just thinking about you and wondering how you are doing on my way to work this morning.

I posted this video even though it is old because it is the clearest illustration I have come across in my life of bureaucratic arrogance. For Lee Paige to have the nerve to a) lecture people about how skilled he is and b) immediately after shoot himself in the foot and c) sue everyone else because he is a dumbass is so incredibly arrogant that this video deserves to be kept alive and mocked for the next century at a minimum.

This guy is an incompetent idiot who shouldn’t be driving a cab much less holding a gun.  

Not only that he is a federal agent and he speaks like he didn’t graduate high school.  so sad!!!

His job is bullshit. Patronizing school children. Bullying citizens. Seizing private property. The drug war is unwinnable in its current form. Lee Paige got what he deserved.

Yes krissy – I have “fucked up” before but NO – I’ve never come close to accidentally shooting a kid in a classroom. Are you really as fucking stupid as you appear to be, or are you just posting dumbass comments because you’re bored?

Undercover? If that's so important why run around lecturing school children in full view? Moreover, why allow yourself to be videotaped? Lee Paige is a buffoon who got what he deserved for being so arrogant, ignorant, incompetent, and negligent.

Lee Paige is a pathetic piece of trash. Just another black person who doesn't have a clue. Running his big mouth like he's the man and look what happens. I don't think this idiot realizes how easily that situation could have been a LOT worse had the gun been pointed differently. I hope he was fired, and fined for filing a bunk lawsuit.

I really don’t think his idiocy is related to the fact that he is black. I’ve seen plenty of white and brown fools with guns and badges in the past.

As a poster wrote earlier, DEA Special Agent Lee Paige “. . . is a dumbass [and] so incredibly arrogant that this video deserves to be kept alive and mocked for the next century at a minimum.” But more importantly, why is Lee Paige even still working for a federal “law enforcement” agency? Aside from his most-deserved embarrassment (thankfully in perpetuity due to the Internet), where in the hell is the DEA’s official and lasting accountability for Lee’s actions (beyond a few days of suspension)? Really, what would the penalty be for the average Joe citizen that “accidentally” discharged a firearm in public (much less in a crowded room of kids)? Lee Paige — you are the DEA’s “best” and brightest??? Well, mister “undercover” agent, your reckless overt actions and complete arrogant attitude will *NEVER* be forgotten and seriously *FOREVER* reflect poorly on the US Drug Enforcement Administration. Wake up, America. Wake the F up.

Rediculous lawsuit, He had no business waving a firearm around, other than to show off and brag. Bet he wears a cape and mask at home waving his gun in front of a mirror. In one way it’s good that he is pushing the issue, cause when it’s done he will be waving a spatula around at a fast food place, “This is a turbo burger flipper 400, I am the only one I know of professional enough to handle a turbo burger flipper 400″. Just before he drops it on his foot. No second chances with guns, not my rule, just the way it is. Someone please keep a camera on this guy, overlooking the gravity of the first episode, I don’t want to miss one second of the best comedy that I have ever seen. Last note; One true hero emerged from the gunsmoke, sounds like a young lady saying with clear voice and authority “PUT IT DOWN, PUT IT DOWN, WE SEE IT”. She showed clear headed thinking, unlike the pro’s handing him yet another “empty wepond”. More clear headed thinking at the back of the room where they were running for their lives.

Has anyone ever figured out what lesson he was trying to teach? Looks like maybe there was a soccer mom or two in the room and the big ego took over the demonstration. I carry a gun therefore I am the “The big Kahoona”. Nothing in this millenium will compare, no matter how much whinning and crying comes out of this. “My career has been ruined” Well DUH, “Kids listen up don’t ever play with guns”, Then slam the slide home right over their heads, chambering a round. You do not deserve a plug nickle out of this, and if you had one working brain cell left you would fade into a fast food job.

He chambered a round out of the clip when he sent the slide home, while holding the gun up in the air, and pointed out over the crowd. He did not put a round in his pocket, he put a projectile in his leg, and I did watch the “wole” video dumb ass.

It’s not a cleared gun if there’s a round stuck in the gun. In the vidio two people look at it and then Lee says “empty weapon”. The chamber was clear until he released the slide and chambered a round out of the magazine. “Empty weapon” means clear chamber and magazine out of the gun.

Elo, you’re an even bigger dumbass than this idiot DEA agent if you’re trying to defend this stupid $hit in any way. The gun should have had NO MAGAZINE and a GUN LOCK installed before it was brought into a ROOM FULL OF KIDS. Period.
Jesus where do people this stupid come from?

For all of history, it was believed that there was nothing beyond dumbass. Well here it is on video, and it should be saved for many generations to come. Has everyone seen the parody, done by the attractive black girl in the pink shirt? She really brings it home. Should add that we can laugh now, knowing that nobody was permanently injured, well almost nobody.

THE CLIP DUMMY BANG, TOO LATE

I read somewhere that he admitted that he forgot to drop the clip.
