It’s pretty bad when a deputy leaves his gun in a public bathroom and it gets stolen. Then they ask for our help to find it. I seriously hope someone does not get robbed or shot with the gun that a cop left in the bathroom. Who then becomes liable ???
Mr Smigley says
What – a Sheriff’s deputy left the gun???? JoeJoe is that true? How come we are just now finding out about this now?
The KGB says
It was in the Aegis about a month ago. I don’t blame you for not reading it. 😉
Mr Smigley says
Thanks KGB! Maybe I should start reading it again. Never found much use for it though….

There not saying, it belonged to a deputy? I can imagine the embarrasment of his training officer. leaveing your weapon is the worst possible mistake.
Then haveing it stolen. compounds that.
I always thought that kind of thing was some sort of urban legend, That no Cop could be that dumb. But I see it more and more. I just dont understand. I have a gun with me at all times. When I don t put it on I get that “O shit!” feeling immediately. Gotta do the self patdown..Wallet, Cellphone, Car keys, knife, badge,…o yeah that that 4lb life saver I carry on my hip most of the day. Really no excuse for this, whether he was on or off duty. I pray it was off duty though, just for the embarrassment factor. Gun is long gone to NY by now.
