    Fatal police shooting during training

    Don't do things you don't want to explain to the Paramedics!

    Stupidity should be painful.

    They won't need any charges, I doubt that the officer that fired the shot could be hurt any more than he already has been. I pray for the both of them. You have to be very, very careful when handling firearms, especially if you plan on pointing and using them on anyone.

    A very sad story; the whole thing seems wrong, from beginning to end.

    Tragic news.
    While we've advanced so much with communication technology, and remote communication, it's still somewhat hard to believe that we cannot seem to communicate effectively while in close proximity with our fellow human beings. Physical interactions have been removed somewhat. Communication starts at the ground floor. Communicating effectively one on one is something that escapes us because we've lost sight.
    The article lists the death on 9-15 but came out today as public? Guessing this was just due to internal investigation. Can't cover up a bad thing forever. Truth be known, officer De Kraai will be covered in dirt for something that shouldn't have happened. Where does the responsibility lie?
    I'm almost sure officer Strong has a burden which should never be lifted. I'll pray for them both. May God help us all.

    How tragic! Something that could have been prevented by checking his weapon. How quickly the human brain can forget where it is at. My heart goes out to both of these men and their families.

    Could have been prevented by having training guns marked in a way there is no mistake,and magazines floor plates painted hi vis orange and only used for simunitions,also prior to shooting checking the weapon to make sure its load is verified.I see a huge lawsuit coming from the slain officers family

    Very sad indeed. Simmunitions can only be fired in simmunition guns and they are marked and colored accordingly. Unless on the firing range loaded duty weapons should never be permitted in the training area at any time.

    If you unload your firearm, take your eyes off of it for a second, it is now loaded again.

    Sad story...there are lots of sad stories. No one is held accountable for poor judgement? Lack of preparedness?
    My prayers and concerns certainly go out to the officers' families, but someone had a lack of judgement...should nothing happen? I'm just sayin'...

    Call me an extreme skeptic...the entire story sounds "off" to me.

    Shame he lost his life.

    The news article states that the school building was empty. So, does that mean it was just those two officers inside?

    Tragic story, indeed.
    A CCW is like a parachute; if you need one, and don't have one, you'll probably never need one again.
