“Police policy was not followed leading up to a school assembly where a student pulled the trigger of an assault rifle mounted on a police motorcycle [not shown] and three children were injured by bullet fragments, authorities said.” Ya think? “Department rules state the rifle chamber should be empty when it is mounted, Police Chief Miles Pruitt said in a statement. ‘The preliminary investigation has shown that the established safeguards and procedures were not followed.” [In an email statement to TTAG, reader and LEO Hasdrubal points out that “It’s still irresponsible that they left a gun mounted to a motorcycle and walked away from it, in my opinion, chambered or not. The lack of ability to completely secure a long gun is why my department does not allow motors officers to carry a rifle on duty.”] Regrets? Pruitt has a few. ‘It is unfortunate that this event occurred and I will make every effort to ensure it does not happen again.'” Save messing with the union in a doomed attempt to fire the person or persons responsible for the negligent discharge that wounded three students.
