OK, the criminal is a criminal which means he is breaking the law.  So you believe him that it was an accidental shooting?  Jurors, you screwed up on this one.  If he was pointing the gun and shooting at you (jurors) would it still be an accident?  If that officer hadn’t been wearing a vest, it would have been murder.  Would you then have ruled it an accidental shooting??

I can understand the Officer’s concern with the verdict.  It sounds like the jury must have slept through the trial.  Suspect points a gun at the Officer, pulls the trigger and what the hell do the jurors think his intent was?  God save us from such juries?
