Boo hoo for the drug trafficker. Who said they shot him "by accident"? Didn't say that anywhere in the article. Seems like you're giving the meth lab owner the benefit of the doubt. I'd prefer to give it to the cop. Doesn't embarass me in the least.
His first mistake was running a meth lab. Bad stuff usually happens to those who do. Second mistake was doing something other than sitting there with his hands up and his mouth shut when the SWAT team came through the door. Nobody said the cop made a mistake yet. I'm sure glad I can afford to live somewhere other than next to a meth lab.
I'd say the gist of the article was "Black Eye for Drug Trafficker". Now all the people who rely on him for their drugs will have to find someone else to deal with and the next door neighbors will hope they get a better neighbor then a drug trafficker. All because he was stupid and got caught manufacturing and selling contraband narcotics.
