Why would you not want to know what the vice president of the US ear to the most powerful man in the world, in line for the next presidency is doing?
He and his boss represent you, I and every other person in the US. Privacy for them is no right any longer.
Not that we need to know if he drinks milk strait from the bottle, or leaves the toilet seat up ...but shooting someone, even as an accident, is pertinant information.
Rule #1 for a hunter, soldier, anyone using a gun is to know what you are shooting at and what is behind it. Period no exceptions. this was plainly an accident. i have no doubt. he was careless, but it was an accident. so why not say so? why wait?
Now what if this fellow had died? or does die? what then? If were you or I, we would be charged with man slaughter or negligent homicide. He should be held accountable to the same standards. But i have the suspicions that nothing will ever happen except comedians will have plenty of material for a couple months.
