Dallas SWAT Officer Shoots Himself In The Leg During Drug Raid

Dallas News:

A Dallas SWAT officer accidentally shot himself in the leg Saturday morning during a drug raid in east Oak Cliff, police said.

The officer, a 10-year veteran of the SWAT unit, and several other officers were executing a narcotics search warrant about 11:20 a.m. at an apartment in the 3800 block of Bonnie View Road, near Illinois Avenue and Overton Road.

Assistant Chief of Police Gary Tittle said the officer’s rifle sling got caught on something in the apartment, and when he tried to pull it free, the rifle discharged into his calf.

Um … what?  “The officer’s sling got caught on something in the apartment, and when he tried to pull it free, the rifle discharged into his calf?”

What?

    I think he meant to say, “The rifle’s sling got caught on something in the apartment, and because the officer had his finger on the trigger and the safety off (because we don’t train trigger discipline here) when he tried to pull it free, he depressed the trigger, with predictable results.”

    A little bit of comedy is a great way to start the morning.

    It’s always good to see that .le/.gov clowns are not about the laws of common sense. The clown dressed in all black got what was coming to him.

    Methinks Assistant Chief of Pigs Tittle expects us to be as stupid as he and his swine.

    Must be the only SWAT team in the USA that purchases homemade firearms out of some guys trunk. Poor guys need a budget increase so they can upgrade to Hi-Points.

    How many innocents will be shot before the necessary legislation is passed to outlaw slings? How many more must die Mr. Speaker? How many more? #OutlawSlings.
