What ever happen to finger on the frame technique?
Finger on the trigger with pressure, only needed when deadly force needed.
Accidental Discharge almost caused accidental Death.
Nice Officer, seemed to be level headed and rendered care but used bad tactics. The motorcycle operators pulled over and offered no resistance. But I only saw a clip of the video but, it appeared the pursuit was not high speed nor reckless and very brief.
That’s why I carry a Glock- All safety is in the FINGER and the mounting situation the shooter encounters.

Accidents do happen! That’s why you never put your finger on the trigger until you see/feel your life is in jeopardy!
Ps- When performing a demonstration with a firearm, the first action you take is to show all attendees that your gun is not loaded, by working the action and showing the weapon to your students and to show all students (visually observe) the gun is clear and not loaded!

I think the real issue isn't what it's called, accidental, negligent..I think the issue is the LEOs trying to cover it up by calling it 'an accident' when it is anything but...

FWIW: I might be wrong, but, there are two videos in this thread, I think OT is referencing the 2nd and you are referring to the 1st?

LEOs aren’t the only ones. After posting a video on Timney’s removal of Glock’s drop safety in their new trigger design, I did some research on accidental discharges caused by drops (all guns). I was surprised by how many reports there were with only an extremely small number of them considered possibly true. The confirmed failures were not actual dropping of the gun but holstered guns that took hard hits when the LEO had a bad fall while pursuing someone (down a hill or fell climbing over something) or going to the ground while in a physical confrontation. All of the civilian claims (and there were a lot) were discredited.

Oh, and I agree with you on that first video. No excuses for that!
