What shortcomings?
Keep your G.D. finger off the trigger if you don't want it to go bang.
Couldn't be simpler, for most people.


Another country that doesn't read the article, watch the video, or read previous posts heard from...

His finger wasn't on the trigger... It was the drawstring from his windbreaker...

Thanks for playing though...

I disagree... I don't think he was under the influence, I just think he has no regard for firearm safety, and no respect for the power and lethality of firearms. There is no way he should have shot himself twice, and I have read that he has had a third ND that did not result in any injuries...

Either way, he's a menace with a firearm and it would be in the public interest for him to retire from law enforcement...



Disregard and drunk could and can be the same thing.

Haven't you heard that texting or talking on the phone while driving has the same result as drunk drivers?

Irresponsible and no respect for the weapon he carries. Ask most LEO's and military personal. They would agree with me. Most my family is military, LEO, and judicial.

This guy is a danger to society

Tried to watch your video, but it's been disabled.

And if you would have read previous posts, you would know if you click on it a second time, you will be able to watch it...

Yep, found it on youtube.
Seems that the drawstrings combined with the glock cause issues.
Same Chief of Police shot himself in the hand while disassembling a gun he thought was unloaded, back in '99.

but if you want to pile on the shortcomings of the Glock platform, feel free...

That's how I look at it.
This was an unfortunate occurrence, but not the first for this LEO.
A majority of LEO carry Glock.
On any given day, they enter/exit their patrol car countless times.
Foot chases may go hundreds of yards, and include any obstructions imaginable.
Let's not forget the occasional struggle that ensue after the chase.
How about something as simple as falling on your butt due to ice, snow, etc.
I slip and fall at least once a week in the winter, not even chasing anyone.
How many times does an average officer draw/ re-holster their weapon?

All that with a round chambered, most likely in a Glock.

I could list many examples, but there appears to be a substantially higher rate of accidental, or negligent, shooting/discharges with Glocks, compared to the old police revolvers. Negligent discharges happen with all firearms, but Glocks are more prone to this than handguns that are either double action only, or are double action first shot. Yes I know technically Glocks are DA, but they function like a single action with no (real) safety. Indiana state police are switching to Sigs, which is a good thing. Most police in the US carry Glocks because of the low price to police depts.
