    Lodi Police Officer Shot When Child Pulled Trigger On His Gun At Reading Event

    LODI (CBS13) — A Lodi Police SWAT officer had a Glock .35 with a flashlight in his thigh holster at a children’s reading event when a boy managed to pull the trigger and shoot the officer.....

    Hopefully, speaking to the child and the child’s parents to find out how they were able to get access to the officer’s gun, what the child’s intent may have been—we don’t know if it was accidental or unintentional.

    http://sacramento.cbslocal.com/2013/...reading-event/
    Notice the 'Glock .35' and investigating what the child's intent was.

    I'm surprised the cop uses a holster that does not cover the trigger guard. That is what is implied in this article.

    There's more to it than what the reporter says evidenced by his complete ignorance in firearms and law enforcement.

    Cop was wrong in letting ANYONE that close to his sidearm. This'll serve as a reminder.

    Police say because the gun was in a holster the [sic] accomodate the attached flashlight, the trigger was more accessible.
    Only if it is a poor design...

    Agreed, there is more to this that we will probably never find out.

    It actually is rather a stupid idea. Just look at all the "highly trained professionals" who shoot themselves holstering their Glawk. And I don't GAF what the tacticool crowd have to say on the matter.

    Nothing like a gun design out of Europe.

    So, where is the indictment for allowing access to a firearm by a minor?

    Alternatively, can you imagine the playground cred this kid is gonna have? Third-grader to new kid from Iowa, "Don't mess with Sammy. He shot a cop!"
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    Uhm...where do you think those little license plates for bicycles come from....? The "kids" grey bar hotel. I am sure this T.W.A.T. officer (Typical Weapons And Tactics) will see to it, that this kid becomes an expert plate maker.

    According to the article, authorities don't even know who it was.

    Of course, I'm just waiting for the story to be spun to justify more anti-terror freedom restrictions. I will have zero surprise if some government spokesliar claims pro-constitutionalists are recruiting and training kids to shoot cops. Even less surprise if it comes out of Pelosi or Boxer's office.

    I leave all the "recruiting and training of kids" to the government...

    To be fair, government only trains kids to shoot citizens once they're hired as LE.

    This is why schools need to be gun free zones. Maybe add LEOs to the list...

    We need to keep kids from shooting cops in the leg with their own gun because the holster didn't completely cover the trigger due to the use of a tactical flashlight thingy and the cop didn't notice the kid was groping his gun.

    How else will the violence ever stop?

    Just one more reason to disarm cops.

    Really good argument for condition one carry too.

    I suppose that's what that CCR song "Stuck Here in Lodi Again", is about...

    Who is paying the medical bills?

    1. The kid
    2. The school
    3. The taxpayer

    Three guesses and the first two don't count.

    He will probably get a medal for an injury in the line of duty.

    Yes, you must now carry with the gun at a height of 15 feet of more (gun height to floor)....happy carrying.
    Seems reasonable ... for the children.

    It' Sammy who better be watching out. The new kid from Iowa can wrestle a 500 pound hog to the ground and castrate him. Then eat him!

    Actually, I've heard that the DEA is looking for someone to replace Lee Paige.
