Ban assault kids!
Lodi, CA — A Lodi Police SWAT officer had a Glock 35 with a flashlight in his thigh holster at a children’s reading event when a boy managed to pull the trigger and shoot the officer.
Full Story – CBS
1:24 – “We don’t know if it was accidental or intentional” <— LOL I’d die if that kid was like “Yea, I wanted to shoot the gun and I knew he wouldn’t let me so I pulled the trigger”
1:27 – “Police say since the gun was in a holster to accommodate the attached flashlight, the trigger was more accessible” – What kind of a garbage drop leg holster has an open trigger area? I expect more from someone in law enforcement.
I wish there was video footage of the incident so I could overlay CCR – Lodi “OHHHHH lord, shot in Lodi again”
Even though no one got hurt, they need to get to the bottom of the reason for the negligent discharge (negligence on the police officers behalf… not the kid’s) though because it could have been a lot worse.
