Upstate deputy transported to hospital after accidentally shooting self, sheriff says:
Somebody ought to shoot his Training Officer, too, for not teaching the deputy to keep his finger off the trigger until he's ready to shoot somebody. (Preferably, somebody else!)
Anderson County Sheriff's Office officials said that one of their own was taken to AnMed Hospital after accidentally shooting himself in the leg. Anderson County Sheriff John Skipper said that the deputy was coming home from an extra duty assignment at NewSpring Church. As he removed his gun from its holster, it went off and the bullet struck his leg, Skipper said. Skipper said the deputy is regularly assigned to Westside High School as their resource officer.
Considering that the deputy is a high school "resource officer", it might be a good idea to reassign him before he shoots a kid.
Either that, or fire him
PS: The headline line quote I added wasn't in the article, but you can bet that's what he said to shis sheriff.
