What did this incident do to the credibility of the prosecution?

Yeah - “don’t point a weapon at anything you don’t want to shoot” seems to be such reasonable advice. But then, prosecutors (especially federal prosecutors) are often both arrogant and ignorant of things like firearms.

As the son of a USMC lifer, it has been drilled into my DNA that you do not ever for any reason point a weapon at someone unless you are prepared to shoot them.

Even watching old episodes of “The Rifleman,” one of my favorite old shows, I want to holler at Chuck Connors that he shouldn’t go swinging his rifle barrel around past people like he does.

Whoever did this should be taken behind the woodshed and taught some manners.

“unintentionally” my eye!

They knew what they were doing.

Lawyers are scum.

It’s a mistake to assume that ATF employees are gun experts.

My favorite JAG episode was when Harm fired the machine gun in the courtroom during the trial.

What’s the name of the reality show that’s based on the Red Jacket Fireams company? THAT show is insane, the way they point guns at eachother. Every one of those folks scare the crap out of me.
