[TX] OH SH*T! F*CK! KELLY! PLEASE DROP THE GUN KELLY! KELLY DROP THE GUN! KELLY DROP THE GUN! KELLY DROP THE GUN! KELLY DROP THE GUN! DROP THE GUN, KELLY. DROP THE GUN. KELLY DROP THE GUN.

When on-duty Dallas Police Officers Zachary Helm and Miguel Jamaica did not disarm Helm's ARMED drunk girlfriend - Dallas Police Officer Kelly Beemer - before putting her in the patrol car it seemed like another one of those friendly favors.

Officer Beemer could have easily killed fellow officers, bar patrons, herself, or any within-range multiple members of the public. I'm thankful all are okay but this is an opportunity to get things clear. POLICY MUST govern how officers address situations with other out-of-their-mind impaired and/or crime-committing officers.

Don't get it twisted. There was no "accidental" firing of a weapon here, despite the early news reports.

EXCERPTS FROM ARTICLES BELOW:

...[Dallas Police Officer Kelly] Beemer and other officers had been drinking... Police said the incident happened after Kelly Beemer, an off-duty officer who police said had a few [???] drinks... Prior to being picked up, Beemer was allegedly offered rides from other officers at the bar, and at one point ran and hid from officers... Two on-duty patrol officers, Miguel Jamaica and Zachary Helm, came to the bar to help get Beemer under control, police said. Helm had been dating Beemer... she fired a revolver in a squad car... [Dallas Police Department] Commanders were called to the scene, but did not arrest Beemer at the time, saying she was too drunk to be interviewed... Beemer was arrested Thursday and charged with firing a weapon inside the city limits...

TRANSCRIBED FROM PATROL CAR'S DASHCAM - OFFICER BEEMER IN THE BACK SEAT:

You need to f*ckin' stop now. I f*ckin' swear to God you need to stop now. Zach, no, you need to stop now. I f*ckin' could of sworn left and right that you need to stop this sh*t now.

[GUN FIRES.]

MALE OFFICER'S VOICE:

"OH SH*T! F*CK! KELLY! PLEASE DROP THE GUN KELLY! KELLY DROP THE GUN! KELLY DROP THE GUN! KELLY DROP THE GUN! KELLY DROP THE GUN! DROP THE GUN, KELLY. DROP THE GUN. KELLY DROP THE GUN...

Early reports to the media indicated that Dallas Police Officer Beemer's gun "accidentally went off." Nice try Dallas PD, and it would have been nice - but it's just not true.


DALLAS OFFICER FREE ON BOND AFTER FIRING PISTOL IN SQUAD CAR IN OFF-DUTY INCIDENT

[Excerpts] A Dallas police officer who faces a misdemeanor charge after she fired a revolver in a squad car during a drunken off-duty incident has been released on bond from the Dallas County Jail... Her friends decided she shouldn't drive herself home, police said. Two on-duty patrol officers came to the bar to help get an incoherent Beemer under control, police said. About 11:20 p.m., as the squad car approached the intersection of Gaston Avenue and Abrams Road, Beemer began demanding that the officer driving stop the vehicle. She pulled a revolver from her ankle holster and fired into the floorboard... [Full article here]

Every department needs a policy of EXACTLY what to do in instances that involve another officer. Beemer would have been arrested at least for public drunkeness and resisting arrest is she were not a cop. She would have been searched for weapons before she was put in the car. Cop favors are not usually favors by the time they hit the news. The preferential treatment that Officer Beemer was lethal. 

DALLAS POLICE INVESTIGATE GUN GOING OFF IN SQUAD CAR

[Excerpts] A Dallas police officer is on administrative leave after authorities said she fired off her gun while off-duty in a squad car... police rushed to the scene at Abrams Road and Gaston Avenue and found three officers at the scene. Police said the incident happened after Kelly Beemer, an off-duty officer who police said had a few drinks, had gotten into a squad car of an on-duty police officer. Beemer allegedly pulled out her service weapon from her holster and fired the gun into the floorboard. Sources said she was belligerent at the time. Part of the incident was captured on audio tape from a dash cam camera... Prior to the incident, video from the dash cam showed two officers holding a stumbling Beemer up by her arms as they walked her towards the squad car. Throughout the drive, authorities said Beemer cried and acted belligerent, believing she was under arrest. Sources said the on-duty officer driving the squad car was originally called to the bar where Beemer and other officers had been drinking. Prior to being picked up, Beemer was allegedly offered rides from other officers at the bar, and at one point ran and hid from officers... Commanders were called to the scene, but did not arrest Beemer at the time, saying she was too drunk to be interviewed. It wasn't until they viewed the tape that they decided to arrest and charge Beemer. "We are disappointed in her behavior there," said First Asst. Chief Charles Cato, Dallas Police Department. "I know I receive calls from friends, relatives who had a little too much to drink and needed a ride home, and all the people I've dealt with in that situation were just grateful that someone was willing to come out and pick them up. And so, in Officer Beemer's conduct, that was certainly a discredit to herself and to the people that were trying to help her. She put them in a really bad situation"... Beemer was arrested Thursday and charged with firing a weapon inside the city limits... Meanwhile, she has been stripped of her weapon and badge until the investigation is complete. Two other officers are on restrictive duty as police investigate their role in the incident... [Full article here]

And what about the cops that Officer Beemer was drinking with? Did they consider her weapon? How drunk were they? Did they have their weapons in the bar while they were drinking too? (And how did THEY get home?)

[Excerpts] ...[Dallas police] Officer Kelly Beemer, 27, has been placed on administrative leave, pending the outcome of a criminal investigation. "I am extremely disappointed by Officer Beemer's conduct and the actions she took during this incident," Police Chief David Brown said in a prepared statement.

Helm jumped out of the vehicle, demanding repeatedly that she drop the gun... Helm and another off-duty officer who had been following in his personal vehicle then disarmed her... Brown said Helm and Jamaica made a "good faith effort to assist a fellow officer" but should have arrested her for public intoxication once it became clear she was a danger to herself and others... Jamaica and Helm have been placed on restricted duty... [Full article here]
