    Perfect Timing: Milwaukee Area LEO "Accidentally" discharges at the Mall

    One day after WI finally gets CCW, a Milwaukee area police officer "accidentally" discharges his firearm. I believe it falls from his waistband, ala Plaxico Burress. No citations. Didn't need this right now. The public is already gun-phobic. Where was the nice IWB or OWB holster???

    Southridge gun: Off-duty police officer accidentally fires gun inside Southridge Mall - WITI

    "He was not trying to take any action. He didn't engage in any tomfoolery.
    He was examined and found fit for duty by two separate police agencies.
    It's an accident and the investigation will continue," Chief Flynn said.

    Greendale police did not hand out any tickets or warnings to the officer.
    They say the damage to the floor inside Southridge Mall is almost unnoticable.

    Why did a modern semi-automatic discharge when dropped??

    Or did it go off when he grabbed for it and hit the trigger?
    Fortune favors the bold.

    Freedom doesn't mean safe, it means free.

    The thing about "defense" is that it has practically nothing to do with guns. (As passed on by CCW9MM)

    I predict an internal police investigation will conclude that this officer acted reasonably, appropriately, and did nothing wrong. If all else fails, they'll just claim the pretzel appeared to be reaching into his waistband and the officer feared for his life.

    Anyone else thinking "professional courtesy"?
