Cop Assigned To School After Newtown Suspended For Firing Gun



Officer Who Fired Shot In New York High School Suspended

HIGHLAND, N.Y. (AP) A New York town that began assigning an armed police officer to guard a high school in the wake of the Connecticut massacre has suspended the program after an officer accidentally discharged his pistol in a hallway while classes were in session.

Lt. James Janso of the Lloyd police department tells media outlets Officer Sean McCutcheon will be suspended while an investigation continues.

McCutcheon was assigned to the high school in the Hudson Valley town of Highland in January. Janso says the program has been suspended for now.

There were no staff members or students nearby when the weapon went off just after 1:30 p.m. Tuesday. Nobody was hurt.

7. What they need is FRIENDLY FIRE!

Right now only the occasional wacko gets a chance to shoot kids in school. But populate every school with gun totin' cops, guards, teachers, custodians and it'll look like the wild west!

12. A trained cop accidentally set off a gun. Why does the NRA expect volunteers to do

any better. The cop could have been reaching for something near the gun's hoister and accidentally fired the gun. Fortunate that no one got hurt.

15. Don't forget the school safety instructor who shot himself in Tx and the

Accidental campus shooting by a CU staff member with a CCP.

18. "went off" ??

Does anyone really believe that this weapon just fired by itself?

Also - that is one confusing headline.
