    I don't think making the triggers harder to pull will help them to be safer, rather it will make it harder for them to hit their target. They already have enough trouble with that as it is.

    IMHO, this is an incident of piss-poor trigger discipline gone bad. The cop is looking around, not knowing what the hell is going on; the last place he should have his finger is on the trigger.

    I have a NY#1 trigger on my Glock G23. I can keep a whole magazine in a 5" circle, firing "Mad Dog Crazy" fast at 15 yards. Do you want to walk out into the street with me at high noon? The fact that the NYPD carry Glocks had nothing to do with this. Somebody fired at the wrong person and hit him, for whatever reason. However, keep in mind that this was a real incident, not IPSC, and there was probably a whole lot of confusion. There is nowhere in NYC that you don't have a lot of people on the scene and they usually go totally insane when the SHTF. I too think we neeed to know the whole situation before being so quick to judge. Keep the politics out of this one and judge the facts , when available.

    I agree with wjh2657 .

    How some can post the comments that have been posted w/o knowing the complete story I don't agree with.

    But it happens all the time.

    the complete story is here, see post #11..... the video is here also..... like it or not, this happened just the way it shows on the video, just the way the police said and the commissioner STILL says the procedure was good

    this IS a political story because of the mayors stance on gun control and his history of blaming outside forces on the crime problems in the city.

    The video I saw I could not tell when the cop fired, was it when they collided or after he separated and backed off?
