We missed this when it happened last week. This video was from a protest that took place in Florissant, Missouri (a St. Louis suburb just north of Ferguson in St. Louis County).
An open carrying protestor (perfectly legal in Missouri) obviously didn’t know enough to keep his finger off the trigger, let alone engage the safety on his AR pistol. When he touched off a negligent discharge with a large crowd around him, the round went through his right foot.
The shot caused immediate panic and confusion that was quickly brought under control by the police. The injured protester was taken into custody and given first aid.
There are a lot of photographs of the incident at the link above. The police officers reacted quickly and with admirable restraint. Only one officer can be seen with a weapon drawn (and it’s pointed at the ground, finger off the trigger).
This could have resulted in something much, much worse.
