Cop accidentally shoots motorcyclist

VIDEO REMOVED DUE TO FTE LANGUAGE GUIDELINES

I am guessing that after the chase, the cop had his finger on the trigger after he drew his weapon and accidentally squeezed off two rounds...

i dunno why this is posted here lol.but one of the commenters below on youtube is correct.this isn't an accident.it's negligence.
he's too fearful of his job.this is why it happened.it's one thing to have a healthy respect for what you do and might happen if you let your guard down,however it's another if you let fear override your emotions.that's what happened here.the cop let fear get the best of him.

I agree, this thread does not belong in this forum. It should go here: General NON-Automotive Conversation - Ford Truck Enthusiasts Forums

Definitely a case of negligence on the part of the officer.

That would suck. "Accidental" doesn't qualify. Intent has nothing to do with it. Anybody know the particular weapon here? It sounds like a pretty stout round too, not 9mm. Maybe a .40?

Btw, What the hell was wrong when all the cop shops in the past had revolvers, anyway? Everybody in the country used them, now nobody does. I believe revolvers are inherently safer. .357 S&W for example is a great service weapon. They shoot .38 sp. too, with less recoil and expense, perfect for training.

the problem with a 38 or 9 mm is that a person hopped up on drugs is not going to even stop after taking a round from one of them.
ever see someone spaced out on meth take 6 38's center mass and still charge ? i also so one guy take 17 9mm before even starting to slow down. a 40,or 45 cal has much more mass and will at least knock them down giving you a chance to back off a bit.
i also saw one guy on pcp take a load of buckshot to the heart.
massive hole where the heart should have been. he went another 25 foot before shutting down.
the stories of people acting like superman when on drugs are true.

I have a couple of Smith and Wessons, an SD9 and an SD40; the 9 I like for plinking in the backyard. The 40 is for personal protection as well as the occasional plinking session, but for times when the 40 isn't enough, I have a Remington 870 with a pistol grip and folding stock, and 00 buckshot as well as 50 cal deer slugs...

no i didn't, i did not count in the 357 because that has much more stopping power. but most policemen back in "the good old days" before the mid 80's were not allowed to carry the 357. i had a very hard time withe my 45, but most of the guys carried the 45 anyway because that is what they were used to carrying in nam.
but we also very rarely had to draw our sidearm back then, and it was even rarer if we actually had to use it on another human.
wild or rabid animals was a different story.

Arrow touchy

Trigger pull too light, first round chambered, safety was off.

Hmmm....

I hope the officer is better at first aid than he is at firearm control.

Thumbs up carry

Depends on the particular type of ammo being used. Some types are much more deadly, even in the smaller calibers.

Jacketed hollow points, or fragmenting projectiles, and high capacity magazines, fired 3 or 4 times, combined with accurate aim...well...lets just say I dont ever want to be the test target.

Yep, larger calibers can have more 'stopping power'..very true.

But for non-LEO use, a good compact 9mm is accurate, easy to fire, reliable, and easily concealable.

For the person on the street with concealed carry, (especially in the warmer seasons) even a 22 magnum, 5 shot revolver is much better than nothing.
