Please Note: The video quality is poor – this is not a professional recording. This was recorded live at the event – this is not staged –

*** IT IS REAL ***

  DEA Agent Lee Paige will not be remembered as one of our Nations Heroes of Law Enforcement - His true accomplishments will not be found on the internet nor his dedication of risking his life to defend us citizens from the criminal element; but we will find the 10 seconds of a human error that anyone of us can make. I salute you Agent Paige and I post this not to humiliate you but to seek out the blessing in disguise of this unfortunate incident - to take a most unfortunate event and to learn and to teach others; I guess what I am saying is even in this Agent's most difficult moment he continues to protect lives. Let us all learn from this - if a highly trained Law Enforcement Agent can make a deadly error what could happen to one who has not received training. As a Firearm Trainer watching this video it clearly appears to me that this Agent did exactly what he was trained to do; that muscle memory took over at the wrong time. After a Law Enforcement Agent clears their weapon they are trained to point it down, (in a safe direction - not at their foot) and on a Glock since there is no de-cocking lever, they are trained  to pull the trigger to prep the pistol for break down. 

   ISAQCA's ***CTU*** trains beyond the norm and anticipates the unexpected. If the DEA Agent was trained in a proper manor for presentations this 10 second incident never would of happened and this Agent would of went onto retirement with honors. Agent Paige my heart goes out to you for as a professional trainer I know this can happen to anyone; to fall victim to Fail to Train - I can clearly see you did exactly what your department trainer taught you to do! 

   Carrying a Firearm is serious business!!! Training is crucial to your and others safety. ISAQCA's ***CTU***  prides ourselves in preparing our students in total safety!!!
