NYPD: "Those guns are unsafe, they practically shoot themselves!"

Yeah, that's what happens when you pull the trigger, dumbass.

Much easier to blame hardware than to spend the time and money to train the software properly.  But a lot less safe for everyone.

A "DAO" pistol with a trigger so light it "practically shoots itself"?

I've never shot on of 'them', but I'm reasonably certain that the trigger pull is heavier (eg: 8-12 lbs) than a single-action revolver. Or a single-action 911, for that.

The supposition that these yahoos were exerting pressure on the trigger under conditions where they had not yet determined they HAD to shoot ... is inescapable.

I watched the DVD of a 2009 NCIS story where one of the main characters asked: "Do you ever wonder why when the gun 'just goes off' it never hits the person with the gun?"

Hell, even television script writers know the right questions to ask!
