Oh, isn't that special?

Talk about a case of flipping the wrong switch:

An undercover Plano police officer told investigators that he meant to turn on a flashlight attached to his gun when he fatally shot a drug suspect.
Wow, that's a violation of at least two of the Four Rules right there, maybe three if you consider the first one, "All guns are always loaded." I'd love to have seen how far away the flashlight switch was away from the trigger. Something tells me it's not so close to the trigger that the officer would mistake one for another.

But remember, friends: Only the police and the military should have guns because they know so much more about how to handle them than us mere civilians!
