Only Ones / Only in California

From our "You've gotta be shitting me" Department:

"A Lodi Police SWAT officer had a Glock 35 with a flashlight in his thigh holster at a children’s reading event when a boy managed to pull the trigger and shoot the officer."

“A small child, witnesses tell us was 6 to 8 years old, was able to walk up to the officer and was able to pull the trigger.”
Yikes! Talk about situational awareness.

And...Dontcha love that trigger safety on a Glock?
“It doesn’t have an external safety or anything like that,” said Lt. Sierra Brucia with the department. “The gun functioned how it was supposed to. When the trigger was pulled, the gun went off.”
A "reading event" where they are showing off the SWAT Vehicle/Gear?
Or is this an indoctrination, to teach kids at a young age that police militarization of A-OK? (A long rant on this is forthcoming.)

I thought schools were gun-free zones?
I guess the cop misunderstood the mandate from Feinstien and the Gun Grabbers when they said they needed another school shooting in order the get the Gun Control ball rolling again.

How about a holster that covers the trigger?

It's not just your own booger hook you need to be concerned about with a glock, so it seems.
