Literally a day after I went on a Twitter rant about the local news being worse than anything you’ll ever see on the big screen, ABC shamelessly shares a horrifying story about an ex-movie star who attempted to take his own life. In a world where news outlets brag about scoring exclusive interviews with the parents of rape victims, they also have audio of a 9-1-1 call where Lord of Illusions, The Silence of the Lambs, The X-Files and Thinner star Daniel von Bargen survives a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. We will not link the audio. If you’re a sick f*ck, go Google it.
According to the call, Von Bargen shot himself to avoid going to the hospital. He is a diabetic and was supposed to have two of his toes amputated that day. According to Montgomery Police Srgt. Greg Vondenbenken, Von Bargen was “seriously injured.” They took him to Bethesda North hospital, where Vondenbenken says that his condition is improving.
It’s a sad world we live in when local news outlets celebrate their success at the expense of another human being. It’s a tough, brutal world we live in and all of our thoughts go out to Von Bargen and his family.
