I think they issue glocks. I would think if the gun was holstered, the holster was one that exposed the trigger. Not a good idea.

Kid is an idiot and the parents get their share of the blame as well.

Yes, I am a parent.

That's some grade "A" situational awareness by that officer

No one should be allowed to touch anything on your duty belt; even kids.

They issue Glock 22's & 23's. This was during a public event, and the officer was surrounded by children. He was helping a child try on a vest, and some kid came up behind him, wedged his finger into the holster and pulled the trigger. Department issued gun, department issued holster. He's a SWAT guy, and I believe the holster was a Safariland 6004/6005 thigh rig. This could happen to anyone.

Apparently the mom grabbed the kid, made a joke about the officer shooting himself, and walked off. No concern for the other children, the officer involved, and absolutely ZERO concern about what her 7/8 year old kid had just done. What kind of kid sneaks up behind a cop, sticks their finger in the holster & pulls the trigger? What kind of parent just cracks a joke & leaves after their child does that?

That could've been worse. Glad to hear everyone walked away. But how does a SWAT guy lose situational awareness to allow a kid to discharge his weapon from within his holster? Where was his team members or co-workers at with all those kids around him? That mom apparently isn't the sharpest tool in the shed from her reaction.

I think the local TV news stated it was a Glock 35...With a light installed!
