Lessons From a 1,200 fps Mistake, Paper360º March/April 2019
How does an errant shot from a cop’s gun relate to safety leadership in the pulp, paper, tissue, and converting industries? It’s as simple as CSMR.
The undercover narcotics officer approached the suspect’s vehicle in the dark at a rapid walk, gun drawn, shouting commands. He had just witnessed a meth-amphetamine deal and intended to make an arrest before the bad guy could draw a gun or drive away. The suspect locked the doors and tried to start the engine. To avoid a high-speed chase, the officer knew he’d need to break the car window.
Still covering the suspect with his pistol, he drew a collapsible baton with his other hand and struck the window. Nothing. He struck it again, but the baton just bounced off as the engine roared to life. Gripping the baton as hard as he could, the officer began to swing a third time when the window suddenly shattered. It took a moment for him to realize that the window broke because of the 9mm round he’d just accidently sent through it.
