Now , Now, lets not go getting our panties in an uproar. In my personal experience with a glock 9 .
is that it has no safety and if the officer just tapped it on the glass of the car window it could very likely accidently discharge. No matter what the
case may be everyone has their opinion and their
perspective of what happened. But all the facts aren't out. And we know how rumors fly in a small
town. Just like shubert when a druggy was shot by another druggy over a deal. now see that's rumor
without all the facts that aren't out yet either.
but when one druggy shoots another do we judge them
too. or do we say good riddens. one less to worry about. No i want to know the facts before i judge just as if anyone else would.. I want to know the facts!!! and until i do i will pray for the families of all of them and that God will lead them through this time in their life as he does me and everyone else in this world..

I agree. We don't need rumors, just facts so let's start with this..........
Basic Firearm Safety Rules
Handle all guns as if they were loaded.
Keep the firearm pointed in a safe direction, downrange.
Keep your finger off the trigger until you are ready to fire.
With a Glock, when your finger is on the trigger, all safeties are OFF. If your finger is off of the trigger, all three safeties are ON.
Don't be an idiot KEEP YOUR FINGER OFF THE TRIGGER until ready to fire..Be certain of your target and its surrounding area.
Law enforcement carring weapons with no safties that can go off it you tap a window.......come on....go back to the pasture with that BS.

Are u saying I'm a cow. Must of been a reason you left Falls City??? Hmmmm wonder why? With all the run ins with the law you've had. did you get scared straight or just moved to bigger and better drug ring?
I've been around alot of all this my whole life. And it usually starts with the little buyer that leads to the big dealer and the supplier. So you may have your
opinion but my Family member has been on the Omaha Laws Enforcement for over 25 years and that is where I
get my info.. So go check it out for yourself. I'm not condoling what Landis did or what Ann did my veiw is plain and simple "You do the crime, you pay the time " no matter how the situation turns out.. And he the has not sinned cast the first stone!!!!
I want the facts and that is all and in the end God will sort them all out.

A Glock cannot fire unless the trigger is pressed. The active safety mechanism is a small lever in the trigger itself that must be depressed into the trigger itself before the trigger can move.

Dropping, tapping, throwing, driving over, etc. will not make a Glock discharge. That's why so many law enforcement agencies use them.

I agree with you 100% this was no accident.I also use a Glock they WILL NOT fire unless you make it.There is a big drug (meth) problem in Falls City why do you supose Smith and Landis were picking on Ann? Maybe they knew she wouldnt fight back

The sad and horrible MURDER of Ann Marx happened 50 yards from my house. That moron's bullet could have came through my window or a neighbors window! These are the people we are supposed to rely on for safety, not death. He must pay for his CRIME!

Could we maybe agree on that people with addiction problems put themselves in more dangerous positions than people that don't. That they have a higher mortality rate due to drug seeking behaviors and risk taking? This does not mean they are deserving of it just that they take risks to get the drugs that put them in a dangerous position.

you can sugar coat this all you want,the bottom line is a woman is in her grave for trying to get some painkillers,and the cop that killed her is out every night drinking it up with his pals at the prop.

Smack...Pow...Bam....that was the OBVIOUS just slapping me around a bit. That had to be THE most inane, absurd, dunderheaded post I have ever read. Keep em' coming. This forum provides great fodder and only continues to strengthen my ever growing opinion that FC is a lost cause.
