he stuck his hand in his pocket and yanked the trigger fishing for change according to tmj4.

but yeah anyone else woulda been in jail. and everyone in earshot woulda been sueing for everything under the sun the guy owned.

yeah I just dont like it when people put a cop on a PEDASTAL like they are something special.

I know I'll pay ten pounds of hell for this, but I have to say it. I cannot see any intelligent reason to carry and NOT have it in a holster. If you can't get it in a holster, even an ankle holster, leave the damn thing at home, or at the very least, DON'T have a round chambered.

I agree. I carry in a pocket a lot. But it is in a pocket holster.

That is disappointing. I hope that he will, at the very least, be required to get some additional firearms safety training.

What would a regular citizen be charged with, a misdemeanor for firing a firearm in town or what?

Reckless endangerment comes to mind. Also discharging in city limits. Probably a few others that the LEO's on here can come up with.
