OWINGS MILLS, Md. (WJZ)—Baltimore Police Commissioner Anthony Batts has suspended some training academy staff after a campus police trainee was shot in the head by an instructor on Tuesday. That trainee is fighting to survive inside Shock Trauma right now.

It's starting to become clear why cops think guns are dangerous.

I'm going out on a limb here and suggesting this will be the epic fail of the month, if not the year!

As much as it pains me to do it, I have to agree with the Mayor, WTF were they thinking? I'd also like to know why this "trainer" didn't recognize that the weapon that he drew wasn't blue as most training handguns are?

Not surprised...the local academy got kicked out of a range up here.
They were warned several times then one day a couple of the mush heads were shooting at a tree that was growing on TOP of the 20' tall 50 yard wide backstop and hitting a house several hundred yards on the other side. Ever since then the house hasn't been hit at all.

UPDATE:

Apparently the trainer was "horsing around" and wasn't even conducting class.
Quote:The Sun reports that the trainees were peering through a window at Officer William Kern when he "playfully" reached for the gun and it fired...a bullet hitting one of the recruits in the forehead. It also happened during a time when class was not underway.

Not seeing where they've pressed charges against the guy. If you or I were to do something like that we'd have charges filed before the end of the week. In this case, the investigation will probably take 6 to 8 months while the guy is suspended with pay.

I hope I'm wrong, and they do file charges.
