If a civilian pulled that stunt ("Officer who shot husky acted in self defense, lawyer says," Aug. 6), he would be facing years in jail for reckless endangerment. For a cop, it is considered legal target shooting or just cop fun. Remember Mayor Cheye Calvo. The SWAT team probably received letters of commendation for terrorizing his family and murdering his dog. Cops are now Gestapo and out of control. Keith Mitchell

A city police instructor was sentenced Tuesday to two months in jail for shooting a trainee during exercises, an incident that left a man critically wounded and, in the words of a prosecutor, "brought dishonor onto the Baltimore Police Department. " William S. Kern was convicted of reckless endangerment in the Feb. 12 shooting at the Rosewood Center in Owings Mills, a shuttered state facility for people with developmental disabilities. The 19-year veteran testified that he accidentally grabbed a live weapon instead of a training gun. Though it's rare for an officer to serve jail time for an on-duty incident, Baltimore County prosecutors said the case was unique because of the level of carelessness displayed by Kern.
