Sorry about this guys, I know I don't usually post LiveLeak videos. They're usually pretty grubby, this one being no exception. Having said that, I think it's important to expose those who are incapable of correctly operating deadly firearms despite it being part of their job description. Plus there's not that much blood.
This hamfisted Kentucky policeman thought he'd pop to the local sporting goods store after work to check out a few handguns. Although he assumedly went through training to prevent this sort of thing from happening, he manages to shoot one of his own fingers off. Look at the three people to his left - the bullet could have hit any one of them in the face. Derp!
If it had, he probably would've been spared any punishment because it was a silly mistake. Thank goodness. As it is, he's suing the store for selling guns that fire bullets.
