Oopsie – Police Sniper Opens Fire During French President Hollande’s Speech…

At least two people have been injured, including a waiter, after a police sharpshooter accidentally opened fire during a speech by French president Francois Hollande. Mr. Hollande was talking at the opening of the Paris to Bordeaux rail when the gunshots interrupted his speech.


A security guard accidentally opened fire which hit a member of the wait staff in the calf as well as injuring his own foot. The security guard reportedly opened fire after leaving his safety in the off position.

The gun in question is said to have been fired from a soldier from a special platoon in charge the protection of the gendarmerie, according to the DailyMail. Video Below:

If anyone was a conspiratorially minded chap, and given the stakes in the upcoming French election, and adding that Francois Hollande is not running for reelection, and layering the severe influence being attempted by globalists within the U.S. Dept of State and nationalists from Russia, and considering the recent WikiLeaks information about the CIA efforts to influence French elections…. well, some might wonder if this might have been a warning shot of sorts. But that would mean it wasn’t actually accidental, and yet needed to look accidental,.. or something.

Nah, the police sniper just accidentally shot the waiter.

Oopsie daisy..

    It was a warning from ALLAH so that the French people don’t defy the prophet.

    Hollande didn’t immediately surrender. The shot must not have been fired by a German.

    I wonder what the name of the sniper is and if Coulter’s law applies here.

    Other than that possibility, yes, it is absolutely a threat. LePen will not be backed down by threats.

  11. He didn’t look worried, and his protection detail didn’t rush him to safety. Add that to the cynicism.

    Reading the article, the “sharp” shooter got the waiter in the leg and himself in the foot (yes really).
    Not too sharp I’d say.

    So the safety was off and his fingers was inside the trigger guard and…this is a sniper? Oh yeah, French sniper.
    A “sharpshooter”? Define “sharp.”

    These are our NATO elite at work.

    If it isn’t a bomb from jet, NATO has no relevance.

    France, which I love, is a total cultural mess.
    A great tragedy that desperately needs Le Pen to straighten out things now, or it will all be lost.

    He didn’t “open fire.” He had a negligent discharge. “Open fire” means intentionally engaging a target.
    Safeties do not have an “off position.”
    One shot to his own foot which ricocheted into waiter’s calf, or fragments from the floor hit the waiter.

    Poor writing by someone who is less than familiar with firearms.

    Hee, hee….playing with the safety is the most common bad habit of poorly motivated amateurs.
    ON/OFF…ON/OFF… helps pass the time.

    Daily Mail story even states, “…the soldier had left the safety catch off his service revolver and the gun went off my mistake.”

    Revolvers in general do not have safeties. Very few designs from years ago did.
    LE do not generally carry revolvers anymore.

    So much fail.

    Waiter asks for a clarification on definition of ‘friendly fire’.

    Worked at one installation where one of the guards reported they accidentally fired a rifle at night.
    Another installation that was known for carrying nukes, one guy lays behind sandbags and a .50 cal machine gun while two guys with MP5’s pointed at your head with one checking your ID.

    Best safety is always your trigger finger…especially with modern fully automatic weapons.


  30. SSI01 says:

    So let me understand this . . . . the shooter is a member of the French military (presumably, the Army) that is tasked with protecting members of French law enforcement – and he winds up opening fire on an innocent person and shoots himself into the bargain? Say what???


  31. SSI01 says:

    Friendly fire . . . isn’t.


  32. JoAnn Leichliter says:

    So–a police officer accidentally discharges a pistol. Not a “sharpshooter” or a “sniper.” Shoots self in the foot, riccochet hits food service guy. Is that the story? Geez. Still… Do these cops usually carry guns? Just askin’.
