Hug triggers officer's gun, kills woman.
#1
7/8/2012, Detroit.

A woman celebrating the weekend before her 25th birthday was fatally shot when she hugged an off-duty police officer while dancing at a party, causing the officer's service weapon to fire, according to police and her mother.

Adaisha Miller would have turned 25 on 8/8/2012, according to her mother, Yolanda McNair.

The shooting happened at an outdoor social gathering about 12:30 a.m., said police Sgt. Eren Stephens. It happened on the city's west side.

According to Stephens, the woman "embraced the officer from behind, causing the holstered weapon to accidently discharge." The bullet punctured Miller's lung and hit her heart, and she died at a hospital.

Stephens said the Detroit officer will remain on administrative duties while authorities investigate the shooting and report their findings to the Wayne County prosecutor. The officer's name was not released.

"For this to happen to her, whether they want to call it freak accident or mistake in judgment, it should have never happened to my child, and there's nothing I can do to get her back," McNair told WDIV-TV.

McNair said her daughter was out to mark her upcoming birthday.
"All she wanted to do was enjoy the weekend for her birthday," the mother said. "She had every right to enjoy turning 25 and look beyond that."

“Instead of giving her a party this week, I’m planning her obituary and funeral,” said McNair as she sat on her west-side Detroit front porch Sunday evening with solemn relatives, neighbors and friends.

However, McNair said she also was told her daughter “was being a little flirty” with the officer and the gun fired as they were in a face-to-face hug.

If you’re at a party, she asked, “why do you need a weapon with a round in the chamber?”

That could only happen in America.
In Canada, as in most developed countries, police officers are not permitted to walk around with a bullet in the chamber of their sidearm.

In Canada, I agree it wouldn't happen either. The hug would be more like a grapple, as the two tried to maul and eat each other. Like rabbid moose attacking each other.

Without getting into the name calling, I wonder how well was this officer educated??? This is a freak thing so maybe it's a case of one bad apple in the bunch? I'm not sure what she could have been thinking.

just from that statement, it's painfully obvious that you don't know much about firearms. in order to help you better understand the technology so that you can make a more educated post, here is a link that describes the basic workings of the trigger mechanisms and how - as you canadians put it - 'make loud boom.' Wink

you can read about double action firearms here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trigger_%28firearms%29

'make loud boom' can also apply when fatass douchey Canadian mounties fall off their Moose!!!

I guess it doesn't matter if VF was European or not. He's made his home In Canada & fits right in with the other knuckleheads. Sitting there laughing at how stupid he thinks we all are. Little does he know he is the village idiot!!

scolding poor snilly for not knowing the difference between a skilled carpenter and a guy who hammers nails... He just pulled a snilly for his comment about firearms! DOUCHEDOUCHE!!!!

Most Canadian police officers carry Glock 17 sidearms these days.

That is my question as well. Why in the Hell do you need to be loaded for bare when you are socializing? For that matter, why do cops insist on wearing their uniform around after work? Because they are penis envying faggots and want to 'impress' with their gay ass 'costume'.

their are a lot of anomalies in this story. first, the gun is a S&W MP. this gun has a safety mechanism in the trigger that will not allow the gun to be fired unless the trigger is pulled all the way. two, the gun was in a hip holster which has the barrel pointed at the ground. how did the bullet strike her in the chest?

very questionable story.
