Shooting justifiable?

A Las Vegas police officer accidentally shot himself in the knee early Friday during "training" at the department's gun range, a department spokesman said. Local oddsmakers have set their early line at 3-2 that the subsequent cornoner's inquest will find the shooting "justifiable," based on the officer's preliminary testimony that the knee "made a furtive movement toward his waistband."
