Cop Nearly Shoots Partner
Video of Police Officer Nearly Shooting Her Partner
It’s true that cops lead a stressful life. Their job is not an easy one. And I’m not going to be overly disparaging toward them.
However, that being said, the only excuse I can possibly conjure up for the near tragedy in the video, is simply a lack of fundamental training applied on a consistent basis in combination with a severe lapse of awareness.
As much as I am no fan of Glocks, or any single-action pistol with no external safety, the incident depicted in the video is by no means the fault of the pistol. Sure as the sun will rise, somewhere there was a finger pressing that trigger; and sure as the sun will set, there was a person attached to that finger. I’m just not certain if there was a brain attached to the person.
I recently heard a police officer say something along the lines of “all we wanna do is get home safe at the end of each shift.” The implications behind that sentiment notwithstanding, I can certainly understand how the stress level of the arresting officer was substantially elevated after this boneheaded incident.
