Space was created in the shallow end of "Gene Pool" when two Idaho men apparently did not know the difference between a military "Flak Jacket" and the body armor that police officers commonly wear.
Their shade tree scientific experiment went arry after the hapless duo popped a couple of rounds into the "vest" as it was propped against a dirt bank. Emboldened by the results, the younger student of "ballistic impact" donned the garmet and entreated his elder companion to shoot him. The conclusion of this backyard science project resulted in his co-hort being charged with involuntary manslaughter.
Police said the vest was designed to protect against grenade fragments, not bullets.
