ONLY TRAINED LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS SHOULD BE TRUSTED WITH GUNS, GERMAN EDITION: An accidental discharge ruined the Bremerhaven police department’s plan to demonstrate its firearms on Tuesday, as the stray bullet wounded a local journalist in the thigh.

Meanwhile, the head of the police department called an emergency press conference to apologize.

“This kind of thing should not happen”, he said, adding that the weapon ought to have been unloaded when the officer demonstrated it.

All the weapons shown to the journalist have been secured and no ammunition was found in any of them, he went on.

“It’s beyond my understanding why this happened,” he said.

Well, actually, I have a pretty good idea.
