COP GETS PWNED AKA A DARWIN AWARD RECEPIENT

Recommended Posts

I dont recall seeing another thread on this so here goes:

 

Rookie cop who killed himself removed clip, left bullet in chamber

 

Jaxon Van Derbeken,John Coté, Chronicle Staff Writers

Wednesday, August 15, 2007

The San Francisco rookie police officer who accidentally shot himself to death fired his weapon while displaying for a female friend how officers are taught to avoid having their guns used against them, law enforcement authorities said Tuesday.

The incident happened at 1:40 a.m. Saturday during a gathering of as many as 15 people at the San Mateo apartment of the 23-year-old officer, James Gustafson Jr.

According to those familiar with the incident, Gustafson was showing his Police Department-issued semiautomatic pistol after removing the clip that stores the rounds. He explained that there are ways an officer can disable a weapon in close proximity to keep it from being fired.

It apparently was part of a demonstration of the department's "weapons retention" procedures. However, there was still a bullet in the chamber.

Gustafson pointed the weapon at his neck and pulled the trigger, shooting himself, according to authorities.

San Francisco Police Department policy is never to point a gun at a target that an officer does not intend to shoot, authorities said.

San Mateo police Capt. Kevin Raffaelli, whose agency is leading the investigation of the incident, declined to comment Tuesday other than to say that police do not believe other officers were present at the time of the shooting.

Some of those at the party apparently were drinking, authorities said. Toxicology results from Gustafson's autopsy will not be available for several weeks.

Gustafson graduated from the San Francisco Police Academy in January and had just finished a six-month stint in the Mission District under a field training officer. He had recently been assigned to the department's Central Station.

 

 

And heres a quick follow up to that

 

SFPD Rookie Cop Legally Drunk When Shot Himself

 

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Toxicology tests show that a rookie San Francisco police officer was legally drunk when he fatally shot himself during a late-night gathering at his apartment earlier this month.

 

The San Mateo County coroner says 23-year-old James Gustafson Junior had a blood-alcohol level of 0.09 percent -- above the legal limit for driving of 0.08 percent -- at the time. Authorities say he shot himself in the neck with his department-issued semiautomatic pistol on August eleventh.

 

Gustafson -- had graduated from the police academy in January -- was off duty at the time.

 

The coroner's office has ruled the case an accident.

 

Police say they're awaiting official receipt of the toxicology results and gunshot residue tests before making their final determination on cause of death.

I am all for some people getting a darwin award. It is what is needed. But what makes me wonder is how some people here have not gotten their awards yet.

Goes to show you what kind of people are cops... I mean, he may be an extreme example, but unless you're a detective or some high ranking officer, you're just a dumb monkey with a squad car and a radio.

come on, that video was real? Shit was funny, but usually the class speaker is a jackass cop, that dude's shirt said DEA, no? Plus who keeps talking after shooting his own ass? I guess it's good for a laugh regardless but I have a hard time believing it. The other cop, what a dumbass, play with fire, you get burned.
