    It remains unclear what caused the weapon to fire, and what the officer was doing when it fired.
    10 to 1 her booger hook was on the bang switch.

    Funny how
    It remains unclear what caused the weapon to fire, and what the officer was doing when it fired.
    It should be pretty obvious to the officer involved. Sounds to me like not releasing details because it would be a huge embarrassment to the department.

    Could have been a bad case of re-holstering?

    This is a serious matter there needs to be a commission and investigation. How many more police officers will have to suffer?

    Is that why Andy kept the bullets from Barney? I though they had tough gun laws in Chicago. Why do the cops have guns?

    Sorry Friday night, long day.........

    This mystery shouldn't stump the detective team for long, but it may never be posted for all to read.

    She shot her right leg. I wonder which side her holster is on?

    It was probably one of those scary black assault Glocks. We all know they are evil and have a mind of their own, going off by themselves while sitting in the holster.
