any bets it will be 2-4 weeks "administrative leave"??

Were it any CCW holder we would be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law!

another example of "above the law"

Why the **** was his finger on the trigger if he wasn't clear of his target? There is no such thing as an accidental shooting, only negligence.

It seems that the only gun control that is really needed should be directed at law enforcement. I have the utmost respect for anyone that risks their life to protect others. But give me a break already!

no excuse for that. if your stress meter is pegged that far into paranoia you shouldnt have a firearm much less be a police officer. ive personally cleared tons of buildings and areas with suspected burglers and prowlers. its scary but its part of the job. you either cowboy up and do the job correctly or find a different line of work.

Have seen and been involved in frantic firefights with unarmed civilians running the gauntlet in the street. Keep in mind, in Iraq and Afghanistan, the enemy combatants don't wear uniforms either. Never saw a civilian shot by our guys in these instances. However, it DOES happen in those scenarios, as it's just damn near unavoidable.

These guys, or whichever one fired the shot, need to be prosecuted to the fullest extent for negligence and dereliction (and probably a couple more charges too) and then likely the entire department needs some major remedial training. This kind of thing is completely unacceptable, even in a full fledged battle.

Amen to that! I've been seeing a trend in LEOs lately. Big egos, and bullying folks.

We had an incident in Indianapolis a few years ago when the cops burst in a door and the drunken sleeping homeowner woke up and tried to defend himself with a knife. He didn't know who had broken in, he just felt in danger. He was shot to death. They were in the WRONG apartment! Nothing came of when incident.

Another Indy cop hit several motorcyclist sitting at a stoplight. One died, I think one was in the hospital for a year. He had been drinking, but the blood draw was sent to a lab certified for civilian testing, but not for LEO. Later the blood was removed from the fridge in the evidence locker and became worthless! Accident?

This one is still waiting trial.

This week 5 cars rolled up to a parked car in the Lowes parking lot. The Lowes employee was sitting in his truck having lunch. They thought he was stealing catalytic converters. Ok, check him out if you must, but 5 cars, really!

We need to get back to serving and protecting!
