Police officers are LESS able to handle firearms as safely as citizen firearms aficionados. A gun is just a job tool to them and they learn the rudiments and that's about all. And with money so tight these days, it's not surprising they don't get much practice time...or even much training.
Based on little information, the arrest was over; there was no 'heat of the moment' involved. He probably had his trigger finger where it should not have been when holstering his weapon. A lesson learned the hard-way. He should get a couple days suspension for this. What-if he shot a bystander?
