Safety Notes

Don’t shoot yourself in the leg when drawing your pistol.

According to authorities, Officer Charles Hamilton was responding to a potential burglary in progress at a residence on Lind Ave. around 10:06 AM. As he approached the scene on foot, Hamilton drew his service weapon, which subsequently discharged and struck him in the right leg.

On the same page, there’s an interesting display of handguns seized during a drug raid.

Jones went into her room to get her revolver for protection. When Jones exited her bedroom, Turner advanced towards her and she fired on[e] shot out of fear for her life. Turner was pronounced dead at the scene.

I don’t understand how can anyone possibly defend themselves with a revolver handgun and kill someone with only one shot but apparently it happens.

  1. When you have already shot yourself in the leg, you may as well hold yourself for ransom. Demand a million dollars and a helicopter. And stop carrying a firearm.

  2. Not that it matters, but I hope he hadn’t been on the PD long. I’m sure the official report will say he dropped it, or something.
