Chino Police Injure Three With Unattended Rifle at Anti-Drug Event
 
Drug law reform advocates maintain that the war on drugs is directly harmful to kids, but not usually like this.
 
The Chino Police Department is investigating this week why three students were injured at an anti-drug event Wednesday after early reports indicated a police officer left an unattended, loaded AR-15 assault rifle attached to a police motorcycle in the schoolyard. 
 
"The cops were playing with the kids, handball. Four square, I mean,” 11 year-old Leo Castaneda told CBS2. “They were giving out stickers. And they weren't watching the armor.” 
 
Police left unattended a motorcycle with a gun latched to it, and a student reportedly went over to the rifle and fired it at the ground. Three students were transported to the hospital, two likely hit by metal debris.
