Shooting your own

Not-so-friendly: I always cringe when military folk talk about friendly fire. There's nothing friendly about it. Pat Tillman, the former NFL player, died of friendly fire (killed by his compatriots), and I believe that Confederate general Stonewall Jackson died the same way. Jackson was shot in the arm; it was amputated, but he got pneumonia and died.

I've tried to think of an alternative for friendly fire. Shooting your own?
