    Default Dad Shoots Daughter He Mistook for Intruder

    Anyone questioning the anti-gun bias in the media is a moron. This story, listed on today's MSNBC's "Breaking News" section, is only the latest concrete proof.

    Every year, there are literally thousands of documented incidents where lawfully purchased weapons are used to protect the innocent. How often, if ever, are those stories reported ANYWHERE in the mainstream media?

    In contrast, some moronic off-duty donut eating cop shoots his own daughter and it is treated as a "Breaking News" story:

    MSNBC Reuters

    Updated: 1 hour, 9 minutes ago

    STRATFORD, Conn. - An off-duty New Haven police officer shot and critically wounded his 18-year-old daughter, apparently mistaking her for an intruder after she sneaked out of their Stratford home and re-entered through the basement.

    Eric Scott, 41, on the New Haven force for nine years, has not been charged in the Tuesday shooting.

    “Mr. Scott was under the impression his daughter had gone to bed for the night,” Stratford Capt. Thomas Rodia said. “He did not expect his daughter to be outside or down in the basement.”
    Story continues below ↓advertisement

    Investigators said Tasha Scott left her home late Monday to meet a boyfriend. She triggered a backyard motion sensor light as she tried to enter through a basement door.

    Awakened by the light, Eric Scott spotted someone moving in the basement bathroom, police said. He fired his department-issued pistol once, hitting the teen in the knee. The bullet traveled up her leg and lodged in her thigh area, police said.

    Her father called 911, authorities said.

    The teenager underwent surgery and was listed in critical but stable condition Wednesday morning.

    Scott has been on leave since being struck by a truck while on duty in November. A telephone listing for him had been disconnected Wednesday morning, and a message left for him at the New Haven department was not immediately returned.

    By the way, this fucking slob cop should have his badge taken away because he violated the absolutely most fundamental rule when using a firearm: Be certain of your target and what's behind it.

    Why is he a "slob cop". It's an honest mistake (though a terrible one), he had no idea the person he was about to fire at was his daughter, how could he? If you have an intruder in your home (he had many reasons to assume so) it's not like the movies, you don't jump in front of them and yell "freeze". Unless you want to get your head blown off.

    If anything, his ADULT daughter should have know better.

    If this were a real home intrusion we would all be applauding this guy for protecting his home.

    Let me set you straight, sparky:

    The person firing the weapon is responsible for the terminal resting place of every bullet that leaves his weapon. That's why the FIRST rule taught to any child--much less a professional LEO--is TO BE CERTAIN OF YOUR TARGET.

    In low-light or no-light conditions, police officers, like the SLOB in question, carry these gizmos called "flashlights" and are trained to use them to <get this> help them see in the dark. Amazing, I know.

    Yeah, and believe it or not, there are even three different techniques taught to LEOs on how to properly use their flashlights. And then LEOs practice these flashlight techniques while performing "discrimination drills" where they have to use their flashlights to identify good guys versus bad guys before they start spraying bullets down range. And they practice these drills using special facilities called "shoot houses" and use a special type of ammunition called "frangible rounds" that disintegrate on impact with solid surfaces.

    Are you getting the impression that I know a little bit about this subject, Willy?

    LEOs are trained in these methods to avoid exactly the kind of negligent discharge made by this moron. And make no mistake: Discharging your weapon at someone or something that you have not properly identified is considered NEGLIGENCE. it's not an "accident" or a "mistake." It may even be criminal negligence, depending upon the facts.

    And now this dipshit is going to have to appear before a Board of Inquiry and explain how it was that he failed to follow the most basic rule governing the use of his weapon and, in doing so, shot his own daughter.

    Hey, I'm going to go way out on a limb and say that his career as a LEO is coming to a rapid conclusion. Just a wild fucking guess.

    Knowledge. Yes. Common sense. Long way away. I think his point still stands: had it been a real burglar, we'd all be praising his bravery. Even you would.

    Be a litte less harsh. Just because he made a mistake, being that he is human, doesn't mean he's a slob. Guess you're perfect? "Let the person whom has no sin cast the first stone." Get my drift?

    Lighten up.

    The one point that people seem to forget in the right to bear arms argument is that if it was a intruder. He/She(intruder) does not care who or where they are firing at.

    I'm sorry doo doo but you are using rules that apply to a cop on duty, not in his home. He had every right to shoot at who ever it was that was in his home. He did not have to know where that bullet was going. All he has to do is try to protect himself and his family. That's what he did. Unfortunately his daughter was the intruder. This was her fault. But I'm sure he is the one that is going to take the blunt of it for the rest of his life. He's far from a slob cop because of this incident. His career maybe over because of his mental state in shooting his daughter. Try living with that. Be careful at who you start shaking you finger at. You just might get one in your direction one day.

    An average person may have. He thinks like a cop. The story even says he thought his daughter was in bed asleep. Why would he think a family member would have to climb though a window if he thought they were already home.

    "Suck a fat one, faggot."
    -MikeL, showing off that sharp wit of his.

    "You may recognize some of these chemicals. Let's start with cyanide...The one the Aum Shinrikyo cult attempted to use to commit mass murder in a Tokyo subway in May 1995...The same cyanide produced routinely--1.4 million tons per year--for use in the production of plastics, adhesives, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and so on. It seems that those who put small amounts of cyanide in subways are terrorists. But those who produce it in mass quantities and contaminate broad reaches of soil, water, and air, killing countless living beings, are not terrorists, but rather capitalists, and are counted among the finest and most powerful people on the planet."

    He's a tool because you say so. Right? Try and go up to a car every night not knowing if it's the last time you may see that same daughter.

    One of the things I got to do when I trained as a reserve police officer was do a couple ride alongs in a city called Lake Orion, Very middle class town 2-3 miles long. One of the cops I rode with had an incident where a real TOOL tried to start a problem then pulled a knife. A f'n knife (dumb fucking ass, bring a knife to a gun fight). Adrenalin kicks in and surviver mode starts. Live with that every day then you need to bring it home. That is fucked-up. But that's what the average cop does. The reason I never became one. I'm sick of people putting down every cop out there when it suits themselves. Not every cop will bust your head for saying the wrong thing.

    I do have a question for everyone though. How would you feel if people called you a f'n tool? Remember, they hear it everyday. You don't.
