Just heard that an Officer, Giving a gun saftey ahndling course at a school shot a cild while showing how to safley handle a handgun. Says the the officer took his duty weapon out and was showing it off and it discharged and grazed a boys head. The goy is in good shape at the hospital. What the hell are people thinking? You do not take a loaded firearm out and show it off in a large crowd, I dont care who you are. You are just asking for trouble. I think they should charge the Officer the same as they would charge you ar me. Also he should be fired.

She is a 5yr vet of the dept and the weapon is a Glock 17 which is the issue arm of the Philly P.D. Can't wait to see how the new Chief handles it.

I thought Barner Fife was back in Mayberry? Did they take away her bullet? Is this a reflection on female officers? Is this a reflection on Philadelphia officers? Closer to home: In the next county over (Rutherford), the acting chief was recently revealed to have shot & killed another cop a few years ago WHILE DEMONSTRATING A BORDER SHIFT!!! The idiots excuse? "I didn't know it was loaded." I swear, that's what was in the paper.
