Family: 7-year-old shot by police was asleep | shot, old, police - State News - WWMT NEWSCHANNEL 3
No yellow journalism here.
From what I read, a murder suspect was in the house. In the process of apprehending the suspect, a gun was fired and hit the 7 year old. She was sleeping so I would guess it was an accidental discharge.
Horrible horrible situation. Maybe the person that fired the shot should not be a cop if he can't control his weapon, but this is hardly anything more than an accident, from what I have read.
Are you practicing for a job on the National Enquirer? Because that is one of the most misleading thread titles I've seen on this forum. It is pathetic.
So you think every time the cop kills some one its accidental.
An "accident" that results in the cop losing his job and spending some time in jail to think over. I would much rather call this an incident of negligence rather than an accident.
Not at all. The vast majority of the time they kill someone it is intentional and warranted.
This was an accident from what I read.
Not sure why you think a cop would want to kill a 7 year old. This will haunt him the remainder of his life.
I posted this story yesterday under the law and order section. It is a terrible tragedy but I'm reserving judgment on the police officer til we know the facts. I wish obie wan would do the same.
And how would his gun just go off?
You've never heard of a gun going off by accident before? It happens, and it's not that uncommon. I'm not saying that's what happened here, but until there is some kind of proof one way or the other, why would you jump to conclusions. Oh, I get it, innocent until proven guilty applies as long as you're not a police officer or anyone else in law enforcement.
Separate names with a comma.
