That’s actually pretty good.
You never hear the bullet that kills you. (Ok, sometimes you do)
So a man who had his hat shot off then the guy walking next to him assassinated is too flustered to remember whether he heard the shot first or lost the hat first. I hope Inspector Danger is a good interrogator because without a confession, that won’t hold up in court, even Danger’s kangaroo courts.
If I had my hat shot off, I might say that I heard the shot and then my hat flew off, I might even say I saw the tooth fairy.
I would definatley be shook up.
With some of the unusual grammar in the strip, I interpreted his statement as “First I heard a shot, and (then) saw (that) it hit my hat”.
And as for better evidence, Inspector Danger found the witness’s fingerprints on the shell casings.
