It’s been a rough week in the Sooner State law enforcement community. First a local yokel can’t seem to keep his finger off the trigger while stowing his AR. Casualties: two fellow Barnsdall cops. We now move to the OKC suburb of Moore where the SWATties were deployed yesterday to deal with a barricaded homeowner. As the fully kitted officers approached the house in question, one of them came under fire. From the officer to his right . . .
It will shock you to know that the GI Shmoe in this ND instance (not pictured above) wasn’t named in any of the accounts of the little mishap. This is from newsok.com:
The tactical team officer, Sgt. Michael Leonard, who was shot in the leg with a rifle round by another team member, was listed as medically stable at a hospital, Moore police spokesman Jeremy Lewis said.
We’re glad Sgt. Leonard will be OK. And we bet he’ll watch who forms up alongside him in the next assault on a residence. In the mean time, we’ll be sending our IGOTD hardware to Moore PD Chief Jerry Stillings to pass on to that mysteriously unnamed tactical officer. He may want to give Barnsdall Chief Matt Clark a call and schedule a joint safety seminar in the not too distant future.
