Derek Carlile

A Snohomish County judge on Wednesday dismissed a charge of second-degree manslaughter against Marysville police Officer Derek Carlile, who was facing a second trial in the death of his 7-year-old daughter.
Carlile's trial ended in a mistrial last month after a Superior Court jury couldn't reach a unanimous verdict on whether he was negligent when his 3-year-old son fatally shot his older sister with the officer's handgun in the family's parked van in March.

Jesus. Pretty big "mistake." We file charges and 51A's for leaving kids unattended in a car, let alone with a loaded gun in the cup holder.

In my opinion, the death of his child is punishment enough.

That being said, whenever I carry off-duty, my gun is ALWAYS secured in an IWB holster that remains on my person at ALL times. Additionally, if I'm going to a wedding or another social event where I'm going to have more than a beer or two, the guns stay at home in the gun safe/lockbox.
