I remember this guy. He was a firearms instructor when I went through the academy 3 decades ago. I thought he had long since retired.
The same instructor had shot a student before, in the 70s, I think.
Forgot to mention that the officers erected a sign on said toilet which read "Dear John,rest in peace"
In the city where I worked we were blessed with a young "Hotdog" Deputy Chief,who couldn't find his a$$ with both hands.,We were all pleased when he went to Florida and became chief in a moderate sized city.After being ther for a few days he managed to shoot a hole in an officers locker in the men's locker room.A few weeks later he managed to shoot a toilet in the mens locker room.The officers disasembled said toilet from the plumbing and displayed it in front of the Police Headquarters.Shortly thereafter the Mayor dismissed said chief.
The chief of police at Brookhaven College in Dallas cranked off a round that thankfully missed anyone but did pass through areas where people were. This "police chief" later had his gun carrying privilages revoked. The "gun expert officer" advised him that he had to pull the trigger to make sure the chamber was cleared. Not sure why live ammo was in the magazine.....
1) EVERY FIREARM IS TO BE TREATED AS THOUGH IT IS LOADED........ NO EXCEPTIONS... NO WAY... NOT EVER!!!!!
2) ALWAYS... ALWAYS... ALWAYS... KEEP YOUR BOOGER PICKER OFF OF THE BANG BANG SWITCH UNTIL YOU ARE READY TO KILL OR DESTROY WHAT YOU ARE AIMING AT!!!!! OR DOWN RANGE OF A RICOCHET AS IN THIS CASE.
3) SERIOUSLY DUDE....... IT IS INDEED TIME TO HANG UP THE GLOVES AND RETIRE.
Wow! Talk about irony!! And I have to agree with Nick! Time for this guy to retire!!
There is NO live ammo allowed in classroom! For any reason!
Huh ,a range safety dude not knowing the weapon was loaded?Charming.It does happen.The range Lieutenant,on my job was displaying a new weapon to our "C' shift detective Capt.. when projectile was discharged from an allegedly empty 44 mag and buzzed over the balding pate of the detective Lt. in the next office.
