Duty weapon used in School Shooting
This week in Omaha we had a school shooting. A recent transfer student was suspended and he returned to the school and shot the assistant principal who suspended him (for driving his car on the football field) killing her and also shot the principal who survived. He later committed suicide in his car away from the school.
Here's the kicker. He took and used his father's service Glock 22. The father is a Detective with the Omaha Police Department.
Apparently the shooter took the firearm from a closet, no locking devices or safes have been mentioned to inhibit his access to the firearm.
Yes, its horrible for all the families involved, but should the father be held accountable? So far no charges have been brought against him for his negligence. The father did not shoot the 2 administrators but he was negligent in securing his firearm.
As non-LEO if this happened with any of my pistols, say a nephew took one and killed someone, I am sure that I would be charged for my negligence and I don't like a double standard that this detective might get away with.
He should have known better to secure his firearm at all times. :aargh4:
Do you think that he should be charged?
