Brickbat: This Is My Gun


Pasco County, Florida, sheriff Chris Nocco has fired deputy Jonathan Cross for unbecoming conduct and mishandling his weapon. Cross, a school resource officer at a local middle school, was in the school cafeteria repeatedly taking his gun out of its holster and putting back in when he fired the weapon. Cross reportedly told investigators he had a habit of fidgeting with his gun. Prosecutors declined to pursue a criminal negligence charge against Cross.
