Another school shooting.

Well. Sort of.

A police officer for the University of Illinois at Chicago accidentally discharged his weapon while responding to a report of possible gunfire on the campus this afternoon, but no injuries were reported.

"While responding, the officer drew his gun and accidentally discharged the weapon into the ground," said UIC spokesman Mark Rosati.

Why don't they use the word 'negligently' since I'm sure he didn't 'accidentally' take it out of his holster or 'accidentally' put his finger on the trigger.

No evidence of any other firearms on campus.

BTW. IGOLD Mar 11th.

Nervous as hell, likely his 1st real call, scared... Cooked a round off... Not the 1st guy to do it, just glad nothing was hurt, except his pride...

Yeah, but his pride's gonna take a real wallop.

Fife for life.

Booger Hook, Bang-Switch, never the two shall meet until the sights find a target.

In other News, Thirdpower, I just thought I'd share an opinion.

MikeB is a sick troll who's badgering you and the others for his own amusement. He's a liar, and well aware of the dangers and hazards of gun control...he doesn't care about others, and as an ex-pat he could give two shits what happens here.

I'm still reading, but I've personally stopped commenting, hoping the troll will get board with the gun issue, as nobody but us Gunnies want to discuss guns on his ignorance-farm.

Just my 2c, do what you want, and thanks for fighting the good fight.

the report was of possible gunfire on campus, so Officer Friendly helpfully made certain of it.
