    Default No charges for Officer who injured man while putting down deer

    Cop decides to use a slug to dispatch injured deer.

    Slug ricochets out and injures man. No charges.

    Doubt any layperson would be so lucky.

    Atleast having to spend time and money to "prove" themselves innocent.

    I wouldn't want to see any jail time for his actions but a careless use of firearm charge/conviction seems warranted...Maybe some more training too....

    I can't imagine a good Samaritan trying to do the right thing (same thing) being so lucky.

    I'm sorry but if this was anybody but a Police Officer they would have been charged.

    Different "laws" for "different" citizens. Cops/citizens, Gladue/everbody else, Libs/Cons, rich/poor.

    I think it depends on the circumstances if someone will be charged. There are hunting "accidents" every year that don't result in charges. I understand that this might have been ricochet and not a backdrop issue. No excuse but I don't believe it warrants charges.

    If the slug went back and hit the policeman,would you be as quick to point the finger? Just sayin"..............

    I can't see any charges either. That's probably the first, one and only deer he's ever dispatched or will have to dispatch so experience in these situations is the issue. Just the wrong choice of ammo.

    The difference between the public ( woman who was charged for shooting a bear in Sudbury recently). And Leo ( this incident), is that it's in the commission of his duty.

    Am guessing the victim will sue and that will be the end of it.
