Georgia police chief who shot wife in bed resigns

A suburban Atlanta police chief who faces possible indictment for shooting his wife in bed on New Year’s Day, partially paralyzing her, resigned on Wednesday.

“In light of the recent tragedy in my personal family, I need to continue to focus my time and efforts there,” Peachtree City Police Chief William McCollom said in a statement.

McCollom went to sleep around 9:30 p.m. on New Year’s Eve after drinking alcohol and taking sleep medication, Fayette County District Attorney Scott Ballard said last week.

Awakened by barking dogs, the chief retrieved his service revolver and checked the house, then returned to bed with the gun, Ballard said.

1. A personal tragedy...



...and one that highlights why guns should only be in the hands of those who are trained in their use.

Oh.
Wait.
Never mind.

Too bad she has to pay the price for his stupid.

2. "Possible indictment"??????? What kind of an asshat takes his gun to bed

with another person in it, especially when he's fucked up? Assuming he didn't shoot her on purpose--and that's a big assumption--he was negligent at the least. Should police chiefs be that irresponsible?

8. I do, too, when I need sleep. Unlike you, I haven't be up since 2003, though.

10. Who wrote the headline?

I'm reminded of Groucho's joke-
'I shot an elephant in my pajama's. How he got in there I'll never know'
