    Trained professional Officer accidentally shoots armed robbery suspect, police say.

    "According to Stanmeyer, the man is believed to be one of two men who robbed a man of his car and money at gunpoint ... After police spotted the car ..., the men fled on foot and officers caught the 29-year-old .... As the man was being arrested, a gun belonging to a 30-year-old officer with 12 years on the department accidentally discharged, striking the man in the thigh, Stanmeyer said. A handgun was recovered from the pavement near the stolen car, and police were looking for the second robber later Monday, he said."

    The perp's gun was recovered five blocks from where the unarmed man was shot. No comments permitted by the Murkee urinal guardian. I wonder why, heh heh heh.

    Is it just me or has the media changed or trying to change peoples perception of accident vs negligent. It has been along time since I have heard a reporter call it what it should be called a negligent discharge not and accidental discharge.

    Good catch, "30-year-old officer with 12 years on the department " makes him eighteen years old when he first got up on the painted pony.

    Yes he could have started off in a non sworn position received his 60 collage credits and move into a sworn position.

    In Wisconsin and LEO has to have at least 60 collage credits with in the first 5 years of employment or before most department require them before hiring some well let you get them afterwards.

    leos are lucky to be put on admin leaves after shooting. Now if the scenario was different, where the homeowner accidentally shot the suspect after he was cornered and subdued by homeowner who was waiting for cops or the cops were there and his gun went off striking the suspect? jail time with a mountain of charges like negligent discharge of firearm, improper handling of fire arm etc...

    OK that settles it, George Zimmerman should have claimed it was a accident instead of self defense. Then he would have only been put on administrative leave from the Neighborhood Watch.

    Off Topic~Wasn't his trial supposed to start this month?

    Yep, I agree to keep your finger off until you're ready to shoot, he should know this but Police is not always use gun safety.

    As with any unintended discharge I am sure he was trained properly as most people LEOs and others that have them forgot their training or just didn't use it.
