Ignoble in Noble
I don't know much about police sidearm protocol, but I'm pretty sure they're taught to draw their weapons only in the most desperate cases of life or death.
Unfortunately, some real-life Barney Fifes down the road in Noble, Oklahoma decided it would be cool to shoot at a snake in a tree. Well, we all know that what comes up, must come down, and a bullet came down and struck a 5 year old boy fishing on a pier with his grandfather, turning a Norman Rockwell moment into a senseless tragedy.
The hyper-macho gun guy thing in America is really pathetic, and in this case, lethal.
