We lost another Officer, that makes 3 in 28 days...
Maybe they will start forcing them to train or at least make use of the Range once a month, more would be better though.
Anyway, from what has been passed through the grape vine down at the range from responding officers. LEO David Crawford returned fire shooting 5 rounds off before he ended up on the ground with 4 rounds in him. What has not hit the news yet is the fact that the Rear Rails detached from the frame some how at some point shooting those 5 rounds he got off. None hit the shooter who turned out to be a 16 year old boy. He turned himself in hours later, he claims the gun went off by accident, though 4 times is a bit of a stretch if you ask me....
I should get to see a report in the near future or at least get the facts from the training officer in the next couple of weeks. When I do I will definitely explain what took place if there was any proven catastrophic failure of his Duty Weapon.
The only way it could detach from what I can figure would for him to have taken it down and not installed the read pin, or it was so loose it shook out.....
No sir, he fell into that bullet... Never argue with a stupid person. They'll just drag you down to their level and beat you with experience!!
