Until Easter that is, when the 10-year old daughter of a Spokane Police Officer shot herself in the leg with daddy's duty weapon.
The incident happened on Sunday, but the Police Department didn't release any information about it until Tuesday, which kind of chaps my hide a bit. I don't think we need to 'make an example' of this guy because he is a police officer, but I also don't think he deserves extra care and consideration for that reason either.
'We waited a couple days. We wanted the Sheriff’s Office to have an opportunity to investigate. Also, for an officer who was trying to care for a 10-year-old daughter,” Spokane interim police Chief Scott Stephens said, the delay “just felt more appropriate.”
And, if my daughter had accidentally shot herself in the leg with one of my guns, would I have been given some quiet time to care for her?
I'm sure more will follow...
