MCPO NYC USN (Ret.) sends us a story about some police training at the a police academy in Owing Mills, MD that somehow went wrong;
The 40-year-old just joined the University of Maryland police force this summer. He was in training with city police. His training class was using an area with abandoned buildings when his instructor accidentally shot him in the head.
“There’s no acceptable explanation why there were live rounds at a training exercise,” (Baltimore City) Mayor Rawlings-Blake said. “I was so angry. I was almost speechless to think that something like this could happen.”
Yeah, no, all guns are always loaded – never point a gun at something you don’t intend to kill, because you probably will. Kill it, that is. I know that y’all know that, but, I guess if police academy instructors are shooting their students in the head, it bears repeating.
