More guns for everyone would have made it better amirite?

Holy passive voice, Batman.

Who was shot? A cop.
Who shot the cop? Other cops.
Where? A library.
When? During a training session.

The article jumps through a TON of hoops to not say that directly.

Sources familiar with the investigation told News4 that when the trainer drew a pistol to illustrate how quickly it could be done, he fired one shot, striking an officer in the chest.  Homicide detectives were called to the scene to investigate. They are looking into why the trainer had live ammunition.

Manslaughter. I hope as much.

Cops being entirely irresponsible with firearms? Truly a first of it's kind story!

"I don't have answers as to why the live firearm was in asp baton training," Contee said.

Because they're very dangerous?

Are you suggesting we adopt riding crops as police weapons?

Because that is why they have that leather flap at the end...so you don't put someone's eye out.

/ I promise some cop would put his girlfriends eye out.
// what..? It was an accident...
/// we were just messing around

"Homicide detectives were called to the scene to investigate. They are looking into why the trainer had live ammunition."

Ooo! Ooo! Ooo! I know the answer to this one! 2nd Amendment lovers want first crack before I spoil it?!?

They should make some kind of special rubber gun or something to be used in training.

A firearm is always loaded.
Never point a firearm at something that you don't want to destroy.

Expect this from the crack investigation response unit:

We've thoroughly investigated ourselves and absolutely have found no wrongdoing in this matter... move along people...MOVE ALONG!

And yet still every officer who observed the results of careless gun handling are still pro-gun.

He didn't know the gun was live.  Somebody else handed it to him and he had no reason to check it. His job is to be an instructor and that's what he was doing. And he didn't even pull the trigger it just went off by itself.

I agree entirely that a police trainer should be no more trusted with a weapon than an actor.

Well I suppose the training officer can always step up and take responsibility for their mista...

BWAHAHAahahahahahahabahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!

You forgot:

What was the subject? Baton training.
Why did the cop do a quickdraw and use live ammunition to blow away another cop during baton training? Not explained.

Cop vs. Cop killer. Is that dividing by zero, matter anti-matter, or no more free donuts?

How black was she?  And will the trainer now get his Thin Blue Line badge?

Police training exercise. 2nd amendment not needed.
Even the grabbiest grabber who ever grabbed isn't talking about disarming police.
And the police consider themselves to be above the law.

Not that I doubt your sincerity, I just don't know if you know.
Are you snarkily inventing something that you don't know already exists or snarkily referencing something that you do know already exists?

If they already existed then they would obviously already be used by police in training, especially training involving melee tactics.

Enjoy the clarification.😉
