    Noble boy killed by stray bullet

    Associated Press - August 4, 2007 8:45 PM ET

    NOBLE, Okla. (AP) - Officials in Noble say a 5-year-old boy was shot and killed by an apparent stray bullet fired by a police officer attempting to kill a snake.

    Jack Tracy says he was fishing with his 5-year-old grandson -- Austin Haley -- yesterday evening when he saw the first shot hit the water near where they were standing. As he pulled his grandson to his side, he says a second shot hit the boy in the head.

    Noble City Manager Bob Wade says police received a complaint last night from residents in a subdivision about a snake.

    When officers responded, they decided to shoot the snake. A few minutes later, Wade says there was a commotion in a wooded area behind them where the boy apparently was hit by the stray bullet.

    Austin was transported to an Oklahoma City hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

    Wade refused to identify the officer suspected of firing the shots but says the officer has been placed on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation.

I dont even know how the fuck this dumbass managed to hit the kid was the snake on concrete or something that caused a ricochet? Why the fuck would you even shoot a snake in the middle of a subdivision? :ugh::ugh:

    have they ever heard of animal control?
    this is horrible and of course is another argument that could be used AGAINST us.

    I've killed plenty of snakes... With a shovel. WTF is wrong with people? Calling the cops about a snake in the first place?

    Why the hell did the cop decide that shooting a snake in the water was a good idea? That is ridiculously negligent

    They're giving him a paid vacation for killing a kid? That makes an incredible amount of sense.

    Standard procedure when someone gets shot, regardless of the outcome. Initially they're not aloud to work but they're paid until the investigation comes to a conclusion. I doubt this investigation will take long.

    I think having PDs come out for animal control issues whatever is fucking rediculous. Shit like what happened to this kid is uncalled for and police discharging their weapons for animal control is ignorant.

    Couple of months back we had a cop running around shooting his pistol in the creek that runs next to our house. No lights, no warning, nothing that anyone would find associated with any kind of wrong doing going down. Just a rapid succession of 6 shots. Now I understand why he said it would be a good idea for me to go back inside after I went out on the porch to analyze what was going down. Guess It's a good thing the AR stayed propped next to the front door....

    :werd: I can see it for a vicious dog if animal control isn't near by, but a fucking snake? :ugh: if you have to kill it use a damn shovel. The homeowner should be buttstroked just for calling the popo over a snake.

    Someone should have just killed that snake themselves. It's not like it was a bear. This has is a case of no common sense. I've killed one snake with a pistol, but it took one shot, and I sure as hell wouldn't have done it around anyone else.

    That cop deserves the worst punishment they give him/her. I don't think "Protect and Serve" means fire a pistol stupidly around bystanders.

    The cops I know are issued shotshells for snake control. Helps prevent shit like this.

    But the cop needs to go to jail for udder stupidity and ignorance

    Oklahoma small town cops ftl. I have seen more general douchebaggery out of them than any other group of people I have ever had the displeasure of dealing with.

    If a ccw holder had done this he would be charged with murder and this would make the front page of the New York Times, but since it was one of our "betters" that did it, we get to pay for him/her to take a vacation.:barf:
