The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department have released the name of the officer who left his off-duty weapon within reach of a 3-year-old child in Gaston County last week.
...the child got hold of Mercedes' off-duty firearm and fired a shot into his own thumb.
The boy was transported to Carolinas Medical Center and is expected to be okay.
Sure, everybody's gonna be OK. The boy will grow up with no thumb. The cop will be brought back from administrative leave with a slap on the wrist, after all, accidents can happen to anybody. And the mom will continue to hang around with stupid and irresponsible gun owners.
That's a good day in North Carolina.
