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 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.
I am trying to understand how he could have shot multiple rounds at this lady by accident. I can understand the first one. But why did he keep shooting? That is the one thing that just doesn't sit right with me, so hopefully you...or someone...can shed some light on that.

He probably won't lose his job, or be prosecuted. The union will circle the wagons, there will be press conferences wherein they will state how devastated the cop is, if the woman had so much as a ticket it will be brought up that she may have deserved it, or caused it, and the question will be asked if you would rather have a crack dealer respond to your next emergency.
It will be pointed out what an amazing cop he is. And that he is currently under a huge amount of pressure due to people shooting cops, BLM, open carriers, and people with cameras, that this was THEIR fault, and he just wants to go home at the end of his shift.
They will investigate themselves, recommend no action, the DA will accept their decision with no further investigation, he will get a promotion and life will go on.
