its negligence for sure, but you cant blame all of them, it was a accident that could have been avoided easily, they make sleeves that go in a revolver so you can not load live rounds, only blanks, you guys in the top of the replies are missing a lot of the facts.. and the OP is not 100% accurate either..


Can you expand on the missing facts and why the OP isn't 100% accurate?

How in the hell dis this moron make this mistake? Cops are supposed to be extremely observant. Its part of the job details. He shouldn't of even had live ammo on him. This is beyond a stupid mistake. How did this idiot even have this job? This is completely insane. I didn't see is this scumbag being held responsible in any way? Is he even remorseful?

Scum of the planet.. power hungry, self-righteous A-hole. Makes the good cops look bad, what a sad state of affairs


The woman apparently participated in the event to "support law enforcement". Tragic beyond words

If thats how it happened, I understand how easy it would be to do. Most magazine carriers are side by side on the belt.

Live rounds, right next to blanks; he goes to demonstrate, gets involved in the talk, pulls his weapon (talking now) grabs for a magazine, loads it, releases the slide, and triple fires in rapid succession.

The quickness and professionalism he displayed with that rapid action puffed his ego with pride, until he began to feel the recoil, too late.

Theres two. A gun is always loaded and never point it at anything you aren't willing to destroy.

Why is there the need to use blanks for this event.. Does it show an underlying issue of a thrill from the sound of gunshots. Feeling of power.

This shooting is beyond belief. Well, maybe not anymore.

I remember the other two being; Always be sure of your target and what is behind it. Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target.

why should I have to?


Because this is a discussion forum, where people share information with each other and deny ignorance, not post and run.

Fine, I'll be that guy again... this sounds like sabotage to me.

Can you imagine if this poor woman and child had been black?

Then this actual instance of improper use of deadly force really would have "mattered" and received the media attention it deserves.

Cops keep fake bullets right next to live bullets? Really???? Whatever for? If it was 'demo day' then all live ammo should have been completely off site.

I was conjecturing how a such a stupid thing could happen, of course.

This happened years ago to an actor (Brandon Lee) with a stunt gun improperly loaded...


Funny you should say that. The running conspiracy theory is that the Chinese mafia infiltrated the set and 'tampered' with the stunt gun. What ended up actually happening was the blank shell got lodged in his chest. He died on the way to the hospital.

It was confirmed that the prop manager wasn't on the set that day, and that someone else was responsible for loading the stunt gun.
