Police Officer Accedentally Fires Gun In High School

More Cops in Schools? Apparently not a great idea.

HIGHLAND, N.Y. — A New York town that began assigning an armed police officer to guard a high school in the wake of the Connecticut massacre has suspended the program after an officer accidentally discharged his pistol in a hallway while classes were in session.

Why did he have

You're onto to something there, FIA

Escalation of Force procedures were obviously not in effect.

If you don't know your rights, you don't have any.

Notice that they suspended the program, not the idiot officer.

That is because they could not find an officer that was not also an idiot.

Barney Fife could take Eric Holder's position in this day and age and do a better job.

The Officer

was suspended while they investigate the issue.
