Teacher accidentally fires gun and injures student during safety lesson

(CNN)-A teacher accidentally discharged a firearm while teaching a public safety class, injuring one student at a Northern California school on Tuesday, police said.

Dennis Alexander, who is Seaside City's mayor pro tem and a reserve officer with the Sand City Police Department, was teaching a lesson at Seaside High School in Seaside, California when he pointed his gun into the ceiling and accidentally fired it, said Abdul Pridgen, the city's police chief.

A 17-year-old student was injured by a bullet fragment or by debris that fell off the ceiling, Pridgen said.
The student's injuries appeared superficial and were not life threatening, police said.

Alexander has been placed on administrative leave from his teaching job, a spokesperson with the Monterey Peninsula Unified School District said.

2. IKR?

The teacher is a ten year police reserve vet, trained in gun handling and safety as well.

If we arm teachers all over the country kids will be hurt, shot and some will probably lose their life because of it.

3. IKR? If TRAINED LEOs can't handle guns safely

5. Exactly

And, in the cases of schools, it's taxpayer subsidized (presumably)!

7. I'm sure you are right about that as well

Damn the bastards make teachers pay for school supplies out of their own pocket now.

But they will be buying 500 dollar 9mm for them, you bet!

The NRA arms dealers will be laughing all the way to the bank!

6. A teacher who is also a cop

Definitely a "highly trained expert teacher"

10. Go to YouTube and search for: police accidental discharge

It will return about 3,680 results.

Now imagine hundreds of thousands of armed teachers in every school in America who will not even be trained as much as these cops were.

Children are going to die by their own teachers if Trump and the NRA force guns into our schools.
