The hell?

I’m going to give him benefit of the doubt and assume that he broke rule 2 along with the others.

San Francisco Sheriff’s Deputy Accidentally Discharges ‘Baby Glock’ Inside Hall of Justice
Sources told NBC Bay Area that Gaines brought the handgun, a 22-caliber “baby” Glock, to work and was apparently not familiar with how it operated. She handed it to Santos and asked him about its use, sources said. The second deputy pointed the weapon at the first deputy and – apparently unaware the weapon was loaded – pulled the trigger. The round missed the her, piercing an equipment storage cabinet, before lodging in the office wall.

Taking that at face value…

That wasn’t an “accidental” discharge. It wasn’t even negligent. He meant to point the gun at a person and pull the trigger. Thank Ghu he demonstrated standard NYPD-style LEO marksmanship.

A “22-caliber ‘baby’ Glock”? Aside from the missing decimal point, what the hell does that mean? I’m not a Glock guy, but isn’t the model 26 (9mm) the one that gets called a baby Glock? If it’s a Glock 22, they’ve got the caliber wrong (I once had a cop come in the store trying to buy “22 bullets” for his “law enforcement gun;” he had a Glock 22 and had no ideqa what ammo it ate, he just put in preloaded mags from the department armory). Huh. Maybe it had the .22 conversion kit.

Only freaking Ones.
