Crazy Reason Cop Sues Glock
There is no reason to hate the police. There are plenty, and I mean plenty, of awesome police officers serving our community nationwide.
They wake up every morning just like you and I do and hope the job they do makes a difference.
However…there are a number of police officers who wake up and the only thing that happens when they roll out of bed is their heart beats.
No gray matter activated, no conscious engaged, and no thought of the future is entertained.
It’s those cops you have to worry about…and it’s those cops who end up using a glock in a way that causes them to shoot themselves in the leg and end up suing the gun company rather than taking personal responsibility for their actions…

When you point a loaded gun at your leg and pull the trigger, you shouldn’t be the least bit surprised at hearing a “bang” and seeing a geyser of blood erupt from the damaged limb. The gun did precisely what it was supposed to do; you made a stupid decision.
That’s pretty much common sense to everyone, except, apparently for Officer Larry Jones.
A $75,000 personal injury case against Glock filed by an Arkansas policeman has been scheduled for trial in a federal court, according to the final scheduling order issued last week.
The jury trial will start Aug. 21, 2017, in a federal court in Helena, Arkansas, the order says. Final arguments and discovery exhibits are due in the beginning months of the year.
The plaintiff in the case, Larry Jones, of Cherry Valley, Arkansas, was injured when his Glock 19C pistol discharged unexpectedly at the shooting range in June 2013, the lawsuit says. At the time he was trying to attach a tactical light.
According to the complaint, the pistol had not been modified or changed since he bought it in December 2000. The lawsuit alleges Glock sold the pistol “in a defective condition which rendered (it) unreasonably dangerous.”
Say, aren’t there rules that should prevent this sort of incident from happening?
Officer Jones did not unload his weapon and verify that the chamber was empty before attempting to attach a tactical light.
Officer Jones then clearly pointed the loaded weapon at his body.
Officer Jones then put his finger on the trigger of the weapon, and pulled the trigger.
Officer Jones then shot himself in a negligent discharge that was 100% his fault, and would have occurred with nearly any handgun made.
Larry Jones of Cherry Valley, Arkansas apparently violated every single rule of gun safety, and wants $75,000 for the Glock 19C (ported G19) working specifically as it was designed to work?
That’s absurd, and I sincerely hope that the judge not only throws this case out with prejudice, but that he orders Jones to pay for Glock’s legal expenses in this case.
Is it any wonder people don’t trust police with guns?
They can barely manage to handle a firearm at the range…how can we expect them to use a firearm the correct way when they’re doing their jobs.
No one’s arguing that there aren’t great police officers out there…it’s just that so many of them don’t know what the heck they’re doing so why should we trust them…much less submit to their authority.
