Oh sure, if I disagree, it must be because i'm biased. Of course, there is no way someone like you, who loves glocks and constantly sings praises about their reliability, could have a viewpoint influenced by bias, now could you?

Because that could simply be a natural position to put his thumb in due to how he normally operates the weapon.
If I had seen the slide go forward without him racking it, I would agree he used that slide release. But I didn't. I didn't see the slide go forward until after he racked the weapon.

I didn't post this video to suggest that Glocks are crappy guns that no one should ever buy. I made to point out that Glocks can and sometimes do fail. This fact doesn't make Glocks bad guns. It makes them guns that can fail like all others.

Sadly I have not been able to find that information. however, I did find this article, which confirms there were other officers at the scene besides the one with the Camera (Brian Barnett). However, it also confirms that Barnett fired the fatal shots that ended the gunfight: He fired 4 times and made 3 center mass hits:http://sandspringsleader.com/sspd-ident ... 58c64.html
