    Woman getting ride from cop grabs his gun and kills herself

    Stephanie Hicks, 20, of Alton Ill., was making the 10-mile trek from her home to Christian Hospital in St. Louis, where she planned to check herself in for mental health help, according to police. With temperatures near 100 degrees, the police officer, who was not identified, offered Hicks a ride as she crossed a bridge.

    Sad situation, for both the officer and the mother.

    Not denial, just had time to talk with an attorney. She smells money.

    Just trying to picture 2 people in the front seat, both of which should be wearing a seatbelt, one of them wearing what I would hope is a level III holster and the other just removes the gun from that holster.

    I am wondering what the rest of the story is?

    I will never understand why it's so hard for people to believe things like that. There will be audio tape of the officer requesting and being granted permission to provide courtesy transport, case closed. Classic fox news

    Many PD's issue only level 2 holsters. The 6280 Safariland is a prime and very common example. Further, many even allow the hoods to be kept down. And what's more, she could have known how to deactivate them with the internet and all...

    There isn't necessarily more to the story. But yeah, level 3 is a good minimum, as this type of incident shows.
    Answer every question about open carry in Michigan you ever had with one convenient and free book- http://libertyisforeveryone.com/open-carry-resources/

    The complete and utter truth can be challenged from every direction and it will always hold up. Accordingly there are few greater displays of illegitimacy than to attempt to impede free thought and communication.
