    At least he took precautions to avoid multiple gun shots to the face.

    I noticed the paper said killed in the line of duty, I would'nt think that would qualify? Terrible thing to happen.

    Killed while ON duty, but not "in the line of" duty. I don't think PD armorers work perform their work in vehicles.

    Big Mistake..
    You may not like guns. You may choose not to own one. That is your right.
    You might not believe in God. That is your choice.
    However, if someone breaks into your home at 3AM the first two things you are going to do are:
    1) Call someone with a gun.
    2)Pray they get there in time." - A wise man

    Carrying my gun locked and loaded in it's holster can get a bit routine. I'm careful with it, but I'm not afraid or particularly concerned. I tell you what though, when I take it out of the holster to unload it or do anything else, that's a whole different ball game. I concentrate on and plan every action. Fear is a good emotion to have every time. I hope that never becomes routine because that's not a routine that's going to last very long.

    Sleepy and sloppy and stupid, regardless of hours or time or seniority or experience or certifications or licenses or qualifications; always cocked, locked and loaded when on the job, especially after dark and while on patrol. Lesson learned, my friends, a cautionary one to be remembered by we who handle and own and use guns for work, defense or fun. This one may save some his fellow and female officers and others from making similar mistakes.

    A nasty, careless, preventable, 'permanent mistake'.

    Hmmm, Killed in the line of Duty! Does that mean he died trying to protect the public from stupid people? Sounds like he was successfull.

    I have a lot more thoughts on this, but out of respect to those who have chosen to do the job, I'll just cry for his loved ones pain.

    Just goes to show, even professionals can get too comfortable. Bad things can happen when you don't respect your firearms.
