>A teacher accidentally fired a pistol inside a California classroom while lecturing about public safety and injured three students, according to police. >Dennis Alexander was pointing the gun at the ceiling when he inadvertently fired it Tuesday at Seaside High School, said Abdul Pridgen, the city's police chief. >Bullet fragments ricocheted off the ceiling and hit a 17-year-old student in the neck, Pridgen said. Shortly after the incident, class resumed as usual. Why on earth would you use a loaded gun in a classroom when talking about public safety? Giving them practical examples of what not to do?

>The teen’s father, Fermin Gonzales, said he rushed his son to the hospital after the 17-year-old returned from school with blood on his shirt and a neck injury. So the kid wasn't take to the hospital, wasn't even treated at the school. What kind of idiots do they have teaching there? >Alexander also serves as a reserve officer for Sand City police Ahh... >and is a Seaside city councilman. Ok, so what you're saying is this is the last we'll hear about this story.

"Shortly after the incident, class resumed as usual." This part was funny to me... not sure why.

There is clearly only one solution here: we need to get rid of schools.

omg....! I had no idea this could happen! No one saw this coming! It is about time we arm the students to protect them from the teachers!

>Bullet fragments ricocheted off the ceiling and hit a 17-year-old student in the neck Jesus, he could have been killed.

>Alexander also serves as a reserve officer for Sand City police A trained cop - A TRAINED COP - didn't think to keep his finger off the trigger when demonstrating GUN SAFETY TO KIDS, much less keep it on safety and not load it with live ammunition. What the fuck even is this article? **Edit:** I understand that his gun was most likely a glock, which means there would have been no external safety. Even so, there is no reason there should have been a chambered round.

That teacher must have been a violent video games fan.

It sounds like this teacher broke multiple laws and failed to follow all gun safety Protocols.

We need to take guns away from these dangerous police officers.

Well this happened much sooner than I anticipated

No school shooter would enter a classroom with armed teachers, as they'd be afraid they'd be mistaken for an innocent student and shot.

Not just a teacher. > Alexander also serves as a reserve officer for Sand City police and is a Seaside city councilman. Also a major fucking idiot.

Oh, the irony. Lecturing on public safety while waving around a loaded gun. Setting aside all arguments about guns, guns in schools, or arming teachers, basic gun safety rules are *keep it unloaded if you aren't actually about to use it.*
