    Only the trained, professional police should have guns.

    Gung Ho gone bad?

    Uh, no, he was shot by his fellow *deputy*...not the *gun*.

    Unless, of course, the Kandiyohi County Sheriff has found a way to animate a shotgun...:rolleyes:

    Sorry; this may be merely semantics to some, but as long as we tolerate the vilification of the tool (gun), we lose ground.

    Shotgun blast at close range? Leg broken in three places? He will walk again?

    Sounds like some real optimism floating around here.

    Oh, gosh! I hope the gun feels bad, too.

    This just stood out too much for my comfort:
    I'd like to know the details of how the warrant was served, it sounds like this was another "tactical raid" gone bad. I'd sure like to know what evidence was so damning that it fulfilled the requirement for a "high-risk" search warrant; especially considering that they came up empty handed.

    IMHO it was probably granted because they mentioned one of the golden three. Cop-killers, drugs, and terrorism, mention one of these and you're almost guaranteed free reign.

    Looking on the bright side at least nobody got killed this time.

    Do ya suppose that the officer who fired the shot went to the same academy as the officer who shot th 12 y/o kid in the back from point blank range during a search in Californai a few years back?

    Seems to me that a cops biggest danger on a search is other cops.

    Wait a second here, please.

    If an "officer" is killed or injured by any means during a "legal apprehension", are not the apprehende's charged?

    So, what gives here?

    Isn't it all Vicki Hindman's fault?

    And why should't she be charged with attempted murder?

    After all, it's for the "po" lice...

    Yeah, doesn't say whether he'll be using a walker, or if he'll be able to get by with just a cane. :uhoh:

    Yep, let's not blame the deputy who shot his partner.

    The gun obviously just 'went off'. It's terrible when the gun points itself at someone's leg and just goes off.

    Let me get this straight -- the woman who lives in that house has never even met the suspect, and yet some eager beaver was able to not only get a warrant but convince someone that this had to be a HIGH RISK entry?

    This is nothing but bovine excrement.

    Well, the woman that lives there told the reporter that she has never even met the subject. This is an important distinction.

    People lie.

    Was she lying? I have no idea. But before we get too spun up and look silly about the 'obvious lack of PC' for this warrant, lets all remember that some magistrate has actually looked at it, and signed off on it. Good, bad? Got no idea myownself, and neither does anyone else here.

    That said, the execution of the warrant was certianly FUBAR. :what:

    They got that part right. The bad guy didn't just shoot a cop. They suspect he stalking them.

    Coronach, someone involved in a criminal case lie!:eek: When did this start?:D

    "So, whose marijuana in this I found in your shirt pocket?"
    "Ummm, I don't know." Sound familiar?:D

    Actually, the best I ever heard was "I dunno whats in that pocket. These aren't my pants."

    I called the AP. Found the number on their website. www.ap.org. Told whoever answered the phone that the wording was wrong. That guns can't shoot people. People can't shoot people. He actually agreed with me and said he would tell the editors. I'll look for a retraction/restatement but not holding my breath.

    I know - it's already been picked up on ... but sheesh .. ''gun went off'' .... I am sick of such crap reporting.

    Let's at least have something more like .... ''firearm was discharged'' ... and add ''negligently'' if felt appropriate. I'll even accept ''accidental'' ... but at least we take the onus of the poor innocent shottie!! :D

    You sure sound like another arm chair commando, that has probably NEVER collected evidence, sworn an affidavit in front of a Magistrate, and then stood on the other side of door knocking and announcing, while hoping the guy on the other side doesn't decide today is a good day to kill a few cops. Am I right?

    I love how you say you'd like to "know the details" and "know what the evidence was," but in the absence of that you make all kinds of ridiculous assumptions.
