The sheriff is issuing guns to his deputies that fire without the officer pulling the trigger! I gotta call BS on this one.

Amazingly, the sheriff believes we are stupid enough to believe this crap.

I hope the child makes a quick and full recovery.

I don't think the deputy shot the boy on purpose. I understood that the dog hit the officer and caused him to accidently shoot his gun. Who the hell didn't know that a black man was wanted for shooting a deputy? Who didn't find it suspicious that a black man "wandered" into a trailer park and started chatting with people? The cops got a tip that the shooter was there, of course they would have went in with guns ready....the suspect was still considered armed and dangerous and didn't hesitate to shoot at cops before....

I think Mr. Wooten has given several different versions of this "story".

Ok, so there was a post this morning from the family that gave an entirely different story. One that does not involve a dog. The post has now been removed. Who didn't see that coming?

The law story changes, the family story changes. Bottom line is nothing will happen. A cop got shot so everything else is just collateral BS. Move on people.

I thought the same thing, the gun didn't fire itself. Since I wasn't there I don't know what ensued, but I' not stupid enough to think the gun fired itself without the officer being involved.

"Wandered up" yeah right! He wanted to blend in with the demographics of the trailer park. I carried my pistol everywhere with me (even to the bathroom) yesterday not knowing who I would encounter. I live close to where the shooter was found.

Just goes to show what chicken s**t deputies we got. They be all bad when four or five of them got somebody stopped, calling for the dog to search your vehicle for no reason and without probable cause. If they think someone may be equal to them(armed and dangerous) they shit all over themselves and shoot the first thing that moves.But just like all the unsolved murders in the county, nothing will be done about this either. Really, shooting a ten year old. SMH

The difference is that the deputy that shot the cat out of the tree intended to do so, and did so, with the gazer.

This sheriff wants us to believe the gun fired all by itself at the dog and missed, hitting the child. If this is true then the sheriff needs to purchase better guns for his troops!

Not sure what kind of gun it was, but a glock can accidentally fire. I had one fire while changing clips wo one in the chamber on a couple of occasions. Needless to say I don't have it anymore and it is possible.

Well the story I heard from the family is very hard to believe... who takes a stranger in that they just met? Glad the child is ok but I feel someone is responsible for placing him in a dangerous enviroment... Jmo

Maybe you should read tha article dumb ass. It does not say the gun went off by itself.and once again you prove yourself to be the idiot protagonist that you always are on any post concerning law enforcement

The article plainly said it was unclear as to what happened because until the official investigation takes place the people who weren't a part of what happened at the scene can't make definite statements. Unlike all of you who know so much from your living room chair.
