Winning an Award for Stupidity!

The former officer alleged the gun and hip holster were negligently designed without a grip safety and that it required only minimal pressure to discharge.

In fact, the trigger energy on the Glock is so low that it was easier to pull the trigger on the Glock than on cheap, plastic toy guns ordered off the Internet, the plaintiffs attorneys stated in their court papers.

Defense attorneys countered that Chavez admitted he forgot the gun was in the back seat when he put his son in the truck, but not in a car seat as required by law. He also did not disassemble it so it would be inoperable, they said.

That cop was totally responsible for that ND. Like the article stated, sometimes it is cheaper to pay to have the problem disappear.
