    Accidentally discharge in arrest

    The police are not there to protect you from crime, they are there to arrest the guy after the crime has been committed, assuming they find him. It is your responsibility to protect yourself and your family.

    The news report leaves a lot in question, not about the bad guys, but about the accidental discharge.

    I didn't see the officers charges and bail amount listed.

    Well, I guess it could have accidentally discharged, but I bet it was more like, "A suspect was injured by a bullet fragment when an officer accidentally pulled the trigger". Then again, I wasn't there so I guess it could be either one...

    but if the suspect acidentialy discharged, either the cops would have shot him, or he'd be in on recless endanerment and discharge of a firearm in city limits.

    If the suspect had accidentally discharged? That would be weird. And gross.

    This article shows the stellar level of ignorance of the media...

    We all know Guns are 'dumb'...they don't think, and therefore don't discharge...they need help in the decision to discharge...like a moron's booger-hook on the trigger...

    I see the suspect getting more than the 500,000 they ask for bail when it's all done. Unless you can't sue if you're in the pen.

    Are you trying to tell those of us who are currently engaged in law enforcement, or honorably retired from a career in law enforcement something NONAME762? I'm thinking someone has a problem with authority, or maybe the caps lock and bold keys got stuck. Hmm?

    While neither "accidental" nor "negligent" discharge looks good on an officers personnel file, I would bet the "accidental" tag costs the city a lot less money.

    He's telling you the same thing alot of people think when they read this kind of story. "If that were me I would be in jail right now for shooting my gun on accident, even in the heat of the moment." I don’t mean that as a knock against the police, and I’m sure he will get some form of discipline but you can't say that it will be a severe as if he did that as a civilian. That being said there is probably a less douchy way to get the points across.
