Russian roulette kills guard

From correspondents in Athens

August 23, 2004

A GREEK soldier standing guard outside an Olympic venue north of Athens was shot dead by a colleague during a game of Russian roulette early today, police said.

The 25-year soldier, Antonis Syros, received a revolver shot in his head by 20-year-old Christos Chloros, a cadet policeman.

Police said in a written statement that Mr Syros and Mr Chloros had been "jokingly" aiming at each other with the guns they were holding when Mr Chloros' revolver went off.

According to a police source speaking on condition of anonymity, the two men had been playing Russian roulette.

The incident occurred at 4.10am (local time) outside a camp in the forest of Mount Parnitha, where mountain bike athletes and officials are hosted.

Another cadet policeman, Costas Tobras, and a soldier due to relieve Mr Syros as guard were also present.

The two cadet policemen were arrested and will be brought before a prosecutor, the statement added.

The four security officers were part of a massive 1.2 billion ($2.05 billion) security grid to protect Olympics athletes and officials from eventual extremist attacks. More than 100,000 security forces are involved in the operation.

If the Greeks are in charge of security, yes. The Greeks bring new meaning to the word nepotism.

I would say that Syros has the bronze locked up. I can't wait to see the finals.

At least in 'The Deer Hunter' they were forced to play at the business end of an AK-47.

Darwinism at it's finest

The story said both cadets were arrested. Why if one was just standing there waiting to start his shift?

If someone was "playfully" pointing a gun at me I would shoot them also. That sounds more like it.
Cadet "Hey fucker don't point that thing at me"
Dead guy "what are you going to do about it?"
Cadet "Bang!"

youd be suprised how many security guards have revolvers. I think its becouse its alot less training for one compared to a auto.

stan: an 8.2 from the judge from vulgaria?!?!? that seems a little low...

alan: yes, but the aggregate is going to score in the low 9's. i think we'll be seeing these two on the podium! or...at least one of them!



That's just classic.

Stan: Wait a minute Alan. There appears to some discrepancy with the judges scoring!

Alan: Yes Stan. Some sort of mathematical or clerical mistake!

Stan: It looks like the judges are going to revise their scores!

BANG!

Alan: YES! YES! They have awarded the gold to Chloros!!!!!
