    Gun safety class in S.C. ends with a bang

    By Associated Press

    ANDERSON, S.C. -- A gunshot was fired into the floor in an Anderson County middle school after a student accidentally pulled the trigger of a deputy's holstered gun.

    The gun fired Wednesday morning after a student grabbed it as the deputy told them how hard it was to take a gun from an officer's holster, Sheriff David Crenshaw said.

    The student's finger apparently was small enough to get inside the holster and pull the trigger, the sheriff said.

    The bullet fired into the floor, and debris cut and scratched two students. But no one was seriously injured, school officials said.

    The sheriff's office has begun an internal investigation and the officer involved is on administrative leave, said Crenshaw, who would not identify the deputy or say whether he would be paid while on leave.

    "The officer there today had a major lapse in judgment," Crenshaw said Wednesday. "He was just trying to be nice to the kids and made a faulty decision. It was an accident. The good Lord blessed us that nobody got hurt."

    Well if he just said "it's harder than you think to get a cop's gun" and the kid tried to grab for it, the kid is retarded, not the cop. On the other hand, if the cop said "here, bet you can't grab my gun" then he should have been shot in the leg. lol

    Not really enough info there to place blame.

    But CLEARLY we need to require cops to clear and check their weapons before entering schools.

    There isnt a cop in the nation that has the safety on will the gun is holstered. If there is that cop needs a good backhand. That being said I'm not defended this cops paticular actions. I don't know the whole story.
