Huffington Post- A police chief in Georgia told a 911 dispatcher he accidentally shot his wife while moving a handgun that was in their bed, according to a recording released Friday.Peachtree City police Chief William McCollom called for help at 4:17 a.m. New Year's Day and reported accidentally shooting his 58-year-old wife, Margaret. The Associated Press obtained a recording of the call Friday through an open records request. The Georgia Bureau of Investigation is looking into the shooting.
See, this is the reason. This is the reason I was skeptical about the happenings in Ferguson. I reason why I found the Eric Garner video so disturbing. You can tell me that cops are there to serve and protect all you want. I genuinely agree with that sentiment. I generally agree that the main motive behind becoming a police officer is to keep people safe. However, there is no IQ test necessary when becoming a police officer. There are cops out there that are just as goddamn stupid as the average American citizen, and that is scary as all hell. I'm not anti-cop, I'm anti-idiot. If being an officer of the law is such a prestigious job, then how did some guy that accidentally shot his wife twice, while in bed, get it? This is a guy that is in charge of an entire group of other police officers and he can't even go to sleep without nearly killing the person he is sworn by marriage to protect.
This guy has to face criminal charges right? Even if it was an accident, he has to be charged with borderline inability to exist in society. You can take the lives of a couple black guys with criminal records, but once you start endangering white women is where America draws the line. I've seen 'Gone Girl'. Can't let a white women out of your sight for 20 minutes without being labeled a murderer, never mind shooting her in the back while she's sleeping and readily admitting it. Ain't fooling' me, Officer McCollum. There's not a woman named Margaret in history that wasn't a nagging bitch. 100% of people that married someone named Margaret have thought about shooting her in the back. That doesn't make it right though. Whether it was a slip of the finger or a momentary lapse in judgment, I think we are better off with this guy behind bars.
P.S. "Having trouble breathing dear?". The rhetorical question to end all rhetorical questions. I have to imagine that if someone just shot me in the back while I was sleeping and had the gall to ask me that I would find the energy somewhere in my body to punch them directly in the face. May as well have hit her in the back of the head with a frying pan and asked if she would like some Advil.
