Negligent Discharge

  • A Chicago police captain was shot in the leg Tuesday afternoon when a gun accidentally went off in his squad car in Albany Park on the Northwest Side, authorities said.

    The officer drove to Swedish Covenant Hospital on the North Side, where he was stabilized before being transferred to Illinois Masonic Hospital, according to police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi.

    “The officer was talking, alert and in good spirits," Guglielmi said in a tweet.

    Few details were being released, but the shooting occurred around 1:35 p.m. in the 3200 block of West Argyle Street, police said. "The accidental shooting happened while the officer was in his vehicle,” Guglielmi said.

    The shooting prompted Chicago police Superintendent Eddie Johnson to leave the Police Department’s budget hearing at City Hall.
Since he got Special Ed out of a tedious and boring political meeting, he will probably be promoted to Commander.

Yes, right, take guns away fro police for their own safety. The old Los Angeles Police chief ordered officers in 1950 to not load revolvers with any thing more powerful than 38 round no’s. The reason given was too many cops being shot with their own guns, and less chance of being killed.

Old - timer wheelies never “accidentally” shoot in your vehicle. If you can’t safely handle your semi-auto, don’t carry one. Glad to hear the Capt is ok, but maybe he should be sent back to the academy for some range training safety techniques. In the meantime he’ll be on medical for months.

I’m betting Big Ed will now reward the shooting capt. by making him Cmdr. Stay tuned.

>>>>> 'A Chicago police captain was shot in the leg Tuesday afternoon when a gun accidentally went off in his squad car...' <<<<<

So.... was it his 'gun' or not, Tribune? Or was it just some random 'gun' that was walking down the street and decided to jump in his squad and fire? Oh well, just chalk this incident up to that 'gun violence' we read about almost every day. Though being a police Captain you'd think he'd know how sneaky 'guns' can be and are always shooting people ... and folk.

Okay, mocking of Tribune reporting aside, SCC's title for this thread nails it. There was nothing 'accidental' about this, it was a Negligent Discharge, and that's that. (these 'no safety' Striker-Fired Glocks (and others) is why I stick with my 1911)

And enquiring minds want to know -- Why was this Captain messing around with his firearm while sitting in his squad car? Hopefully Supt Fenner asked that question and will share the answer with the public.

In my opinion, over fifty years of carry and shooting handguns, they never should have been manufactured, without a slide safety.

Wrong. The approved striker fired weapons approved by the Department incorporate internal safeties, meaning that they cannot be fired UNLESS THE TRIGGER IS PRESSED. Further, unintentional/accidental discharges have occurred with ALL types weapons. Keep your finger away from the trigger, and it WON'T happen to you.

With the cold weather, jackets with dangling cords can get caught in the trigger. Make sure your weapon is in the holster and not tucked with a piece of clothing caught around the trigger guard. Inspect your jackets for material that dangles and can get caught in the trigger or holster.

Also the seat belt can depress all sorts of parts of the gun. Not saying that this is the cause, but it is a known cause of accidental discharge. Be careful when wearing a lot of layers of clothing.

Coupla things:

1). You're a fucking moron.
2). Get off the Captains nuts.
3). It won't happen to me because I'm smart enough to not place my finger (or any other instrument capable of manipulating the trigger ) on or anywhere near said trigger UNLESS I PLAN TO IMMINENTLY FIRE THE WEAPON

4). No doubt you're the result of an "unintentional 'duscharge'".

ISP transitioned from S&W 5904 9mm semi-autos to .40 cal Glock 22's back in 2000. Within the first month we had an accidental discharge on the range where an officer shot himself in the leg during reholstering. Never cared for the Glock myself. Fingers off the triggers boys and girls.

You're an idiot if you think this to be true. The Captain, a clout hack who should not have even been promoted past the level of a night watchmen, is also an idiot. Almost as big of an idiot as you are.

No, you will not have an unintentional discharge, ever! But, maybe if you are galactically dumb, like yourself and the dumb ass Captain, you will.

Transport of authorized take-home weapons must;
- Be empty of all explosive projectiles.

- Be secured by a lockable cable loop and secured in a proper armored container outside the driver or passenger compartment.

- A prescribed single bullet ammunition cartridge of authorized caliber is permitted if secured in the upper pocket of an inner garment that is buttonable or sealed and not visible to the tender, fearful public.

No weapon is anything to fool with. Period. I've been around striker-fired pistols for about 35 years and somehow managed to avoid an unintentional discharge. Maybe, just maybe, it's because I understand how it works, I keep my finger off the trigger, and I don't get all rammy reholstering it. Most of them you can throw, fully loaded, against a concrete wall with zero consequences. They're among the safest designs on the market. But they're not stupid-proof.

This has to be the dumbest comment I've ever read. If you can't keep your finger off the trigger of any gun and can't keep your thumb break out of the trigger guard when reholstering, you need to carry a wooden gun or possibly just a sharp spoon on duty. I've carried a Glock every day for the past 17 years and it has yet to go bang when I didn't want it to and it goes bang every time I do want it to. So feel free to stick to your silly S&W or Beretta boat anchors with 12 lb triggers but this is not the gun's fault. I wonder if this will be added to the statistics of gun violence and when the protests of this latest police shooting will begin.

If you want an external manual safety for any Glock pistol, Google SIDERLOCK. Without violating any Glock warranty, it replaces the trigger with a trigger which includes a cross bolt pin for both left and right handed shooters. Assume you have your Glock holstered with the SIDERLOCK in the locked position. You can unlock the Siderlock on the draw with your trigger finger and be prepared to shoot in a nanosecond.

I'm now CPD retired living out of state. I also am pleased with my laser aimers manufactured by Crimson Trace or Viridian. Get the GREEN laser because, unlike the red laser, you can see the dancing GREEN dot even in broad daylight.

It’s not the gun, it’s the person handling it.

Don’t point the weapon at anything you’re not willing to destroy or kill.

Don’t put your finger on the trigger unless you intend to fire it.

If you follow even one of these basic rules you should avoid that burning sensation and the messy cleanup.

Same thing has happened to officers with all types of weapons over the years.

Before you all go and start knocking the captain, dont be so foolish to think this cant happen to you. These striker fire weapons are nothing to fool with, and if you're around these types of weapons systems long enough, you will eventually have an unintentional duscharge.

So your saying that every LEO who carries a Glock will “Eventually” experience a negligent discharge. You must be one of the idiots who have shot themselves. Carry the correct holster and keep your finger off the trigger until your ready to fire. Its actually very simple to be safe.

Series 70 1911 Colt Government Model here, I always check the thumb safety whenever I handle the thing because it has a 6 lb trigger. That's right, it has a thumb safety, and a grip safety.

My Glock went off when my curiosity got the best of me. On the job many years and put my finger on the trigger. Doesnt take much to go off. Thru mattress and wall. Thank God for old brick houses. Costume for a new comforter for my bed. Wifey was not happy

So wrong, not just grammatically, but your statement all together. All of the "newbies" have been handling striker fired weapons safely since 2005 and I've seen more people with time on the job having a NEGLIGENT DISCHARGE with striker fired weapons than those newbies. Sounds like the asshat Captain was complacent with his weapon handling skills. Learn how to manipulate your weapon before handling it improperly. No one is perfect, however after 30 plus years of handling different weapon systems, safe handling and knowing the system has kept me from having a Negligent Discharge.

FYI, the Tact Teams in 007 were given a choice to stay or go...it was already known that most were either drinking or gambling buddies with Bubblehead and had major gambling debts. I worked in 008 and knew most of 007 Tact. It is sad that you all fell into Bubblehead's trap and followed him down the vice sewer. The good ones stayed on Tact and the garbage left.....very simple. Go visit Bubblehead in the nursing home when you can, he needs some money to get out of his BINGO debts!

Or maybe they didn't want to get indicted from the stupid and illegal shit he did and likely still does. You don't get 20 POs and 2 Sgts leaving tact because they just suddenly didn't want to make arrests. That indicates a problem with the Lt. The teams that were left were mostly locking people up for DOPW, reckless conduct because they ran into the street, a pinch of weed, or gang contact parole violations. No stellar police work being done by those who stayed. The people on the watches were doing the search warrants and bringing in the guns. You don't need jeans and hoodies to get good arrests in Englewood. And you don't need to give in to the pressure from a roided out oompa loompa with an unbelievable ego to go out and get some numbers. Fuck numbers and fuck EO. He's a liability, as he just proved by shooting himself... which has nothing to do with the type of weapon, and everything to do with the carelessness and stupidity of the person holding it.
