I do remember reading of some cases where an LEO was holding a perp at gunpoint while another LEO cuffed him and then the perp was shot when the LEO dropped the hammer with the decocker (while still pointing it at the perp). There were also a number of reports of officers unintentionly shooting perps when the Glock was first being adopted. There is a video on Youtube showing a female LEO holding a proned out perp at gunpoint and letting off a round right next to his head. The looks on everybody's faces is priceless. Poor training and high amounts of adrenaline has much more to do with this problem than gun design. I never quite understood the "advantage" of having a decocker on a pistol.
