1000 Ways To Die Wiki

"Law and OrDead", Way to Die #909, is the seventh Segment in "Cure for the Common Death, Part I". It was first aired on March 22, 2009.


Lawyer Jeremiah Prescott wanted to convince the judge and jury that his client, Nelson Robbinson, didn't shoot a man to death, so he came up with a theory that the victim accidentally shot himself while pulling a gun out of his pants. To prove it, he used an empty pistol to reenact how it could've happened, but he ended up making a fatal error: even though he emptied the gun's magazine, he didn't check the barrel to find that there was actually one last bullet in it. When he pulled the gun out of his pants, he ended up shooting himself in the stomach and he died from massive hemorrhaging. The court eventually found Nelson not guilty and set him free.
