There are no accidental discharges. Just negligent ones.

Honestly? I think that amateurs shouldn't own glocks.

/ full disclosure: I may or may not own a a Springfield XDM. Never managed to shoot myself.

Investigators took surveillance footage and a handgun found at the scene as evidence.
Yeah, I'm guessing they tried to suicide him but missed, and will malfunction the surveillance footage so that the jury will be forced to take them at their word.

From what I understand, it's not automatic. The retiree still has to qualify annually, and meet several other requirements. This came up in my search on it for California (pdf).

Or (and hear me out on this one).....the police, completely legitimately, tend to take any and all evidence after such an incident...

This is one of those things where saying "It was an accident, though" shouldn't really explain it away.

No, carrying lethal force with you requires that you not go all oopsies in public

Many police departments give potential hires and IQ test and then automatically reject their applications if they score over 100.

This is not me making a joke, this is a literal, actual policy in many places that's been disclosed to the public in court documents enough times to make it clear that it's fairly universal.

I'm guessing this genius was holstering his piece and had his finger inside the trigger guard.

You still have to come in and qualify; it's  the dumbest thing since allowing local and retired police the ability to carry anywhere Oh wait that's same farking act.

For years I've been conceal-carrying a Sig p227 and not once has it gone off on its own nor have I negligently discharged it myself, even when I might be putting it in/taking it out of my shoulder or IWB holster when I'm getting in/out of my car.

I need to know the race of the gun before rushing to judgement about who is to blame for this incident.

Also, did he order it to wear a mask?

Regardless of whatever else is going on with this cop, his nickname in the station is now "Barney Fife".

Shot himself in the lower extremity.  That's terrible writing and reporting.

Seems to me that his misdemeanor charge and a gunshot wound is a great lot better than any charge he was about to net himself had he successfully drawn his pistol and pointed it at someone.

He got lucky, for an ass.

Not quite.  An accidental discharge can happen for any number of reasons, although fairly rare -  a slam fire, a faulty or dirty weapon, or plain human error.  A negligent discharge is when you are either a) breaking a rule that leads to the accidental discharge, or b) occurs when the gun is not pointed in a safe direction.

2020-06-28 3:08:52 AM  
If your gun is properly holstered, in a proper holster, there is no way in hell you can accidentally shoot yourself..  Either he was carrying his weapon without a holster, he had a cheap and ineffective holster that somehow left the trigger exposed, or that did not properly secure the weapon, or (and this or is the most likely) he was playing with his gun like an immature child.

FTA: "retired Long Beach police Sgt. Jeffrey Garcia, 54"

A cop is aged 54 and retired with a pension.  But you peasants had better get back to work, and no pension for working in a meat packing plant, because we've got the guns.

Actually, he's right. Any uncontrolled discharge of a firearm is negligent. In your example:
Slamfire: Poor maintenance by operator, negligence.
Faulty or dirty weapon: Same.
Operator error: The definition of negligence.

You take a heavy responsibility owning a firearm. It includes this.

It did get recalled, the suit was settled, pistols repaired, and then they discontinued them the year after.
