Library Officer Is Killed During Safety Training

Retired police officer in DC was showing her and others how to use extendable batons

A retired police lieutenant enlisted to teach library officers how to use extendable batons shot and killed one of his pupils in Washington, DC, on Thursday, according to police. Jesse Porter, 58, is charged with involuntary manslaughter in the shooting death of Maurica Manyan, 25, of Indian Head, Md., a police rep tells the Washington Post. Metropolitan Police said Porter, a professional trainer who retired from the police department in November 2020, was contracted by the Anacostia Neighborhood Library in southeast Washington to provide training to officers on the use of extendable batons and it wasn't clear why a live firearm was involved, let alone used.

Police Chief Robert J. Contee III said Manyan was shot toward the end of the training session as she, Porter, and about four other library police officers were gathered in a meeting room. "The instructor discharged a single round from a firearm which struck the decedent," according to a police statement. "Not sure, in this situation, why the trainer had a live weapon in a training environment but it’s not good practice to do that," Contee added at a press conference. Manyan wasn't breathing when police responded to the scene shortly after 3:30pm and was later pronounced dead at a hospital, per WTTG. Police said Porter was arrested and charged later Thursday after "consultation with the United States Attorney's Office for the District of Columbia."

Trained by the government.

The left tells us daily how only ppl with such training should have guns.

Kamalla Harris the other week spoke about how dangerous guns were, while literally surrounded by 8+ armed (with guns) guards.

"Kamalla Harris the other week spoke about how dangerous guns were, while literally surrounded by 8+ armed (with guns) guards."

That's because there are millions of Republicans out there hoping to murder her.

Toddler injured after firing gun father left on restroom counter, police say

Father arrested after son is injured at home in Hialeah

Jansi Lopez told police officers she was in the kitchen preparing to spend her Saturday with her family at Amelia Earhart Park when she heard a gunshot, according to a police report released on Monday.

Lopez said that before she could run upstairs, Orlando Guzman, 26, had their 3-year-old son in his arms and they got into a pickup truck, police wrote in the report.

Lopez told police officers her child was “bleeding from the head,” according to the report.

Sgt. Jose Torres, a spokesman for the Hialeah Police Department, said Guzman was using the restroom when his 3-year-old son walked in, grabbed his loaded firearm, and discharged a round.

“The child, his 3-year-old son, walked in the bathroom using the unlocked door,” Torres wrote in an e-mail. “Luckily, the bullet only grazed the child’s face.”

Guzman drove his son to Nicklaus Children’s Hospital Hialeah Urgent Care Center, at 990 W. 49th St., police said. Doctors later sent the boy to Jackson Memorial Hospital’s Ryder Trauma Center.

Police officers decided to arrest Guzman. Miami-Dade corrections officers booked him early Sunday morning at the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center. Guzman appeared in court on Sunday afternoon.

“The alleged firearm was immediately adjacent to Mr. Guzman ... I believe that in closing the bathroom door, Mr. Guzman was not allowing anyone else to enter, and then the child, it could be said, illegally entered to obtain that firearm,” an assistant public defender said in court adding Guzman didn’t have any priors.

Guzman is facing a third-degree felony charge of culpable negligence for leaving a loaded firearm within the reach of a minor and a second-degree misdemeanor charge for not storing a loaded firearm safely. Circuit Judge Laura Shearon Cruz ordered Guzman to stay away from his son while the case is pending.

Since the boy suffered a graze bullet wound, he received a “complete check and treatment as a precaution,” according to Torres.
