Moorhead City Cop Loses Job but Keeps the Guns - No Criminal Charges

Posted on the 07 November 2013 by Mikeb302000
Local news reports further to our original post  A Morehead City police officer will not face criminal charges after he accidentally shot a fellow officer during training. During a training exercise on Oct. 2, Garrett Hardin, an officer in Morehead City was shot in the chest once by Marvin Willis. Willis, while he will not face criminal charges, has been terminated as a police officer and the negligent discharge of his weapon has been reported to the Criminal Justice Training and Standards Commission. Willis could face a negligence action in civil court. That's not good enough.  Losing the job but keeping the guns is completely ass-backwards.  What's your opinion?  Please leave a comment.
