Cop shot as child pulls his trigger at school (SACRAMENTO.CBSLOCAL) A Lodi Police SWAT officer had a Glock 35 with a flashlight in his thigh holster at a childrens reading event when a boy managed to pull the trigger and shoot the officer. It doesnt have an external safety or anything like that, said Lt. Sierra Brucia with the department. The gun functioned how it was supposed to. When the trigger was pulled, the gun went off. The officer was showing off the departments SWAT truck, vest and other gear at a childrens event called Reading Roundup on Aug. 24. A small child, witnesses tell us was 6 to 8 years old, was able to walk up to the officer and was able to pull the trigger. -------------- Don't get me wrong, they function well. I am just not fond of them. Too many stories like this out there involving them.
