    This made me wonder if the force of stupidity is actually the solution to the darkmatter and dark energy problem. What if stupidity actually had mass and energy? What if the universe were born inherently stupid and this is why quantum physics is spelled with a Q signifying it's relationship with the Qtards?

    According to the right, health care isn't a right, nothing that isn't enumerated in the Constitition is a right ... but by God, having an All-Star game in your state is a right!

    For the record, they had no choice. When you're arrested for a crime with a domestic violence component, you must have a hearing before someone like me in which you must sign a conditional release waiver before you're allowed to bond out. That waiver includes conditions such as no contact with the victim, etc. One of those conditions is that you are prohibited from possessing a firearm UNLESS it's required as a part of your job as a Law Enforcement Officer.

    Unless the agency fires them when they are arrested for domestic violence, which violates the principle of innocent until proven guilt, and also opens up the agency to criminal and civil liability if the person isn't convicted, the police have no legal standing to refuse to return the Officer's duty weapon to them.

    He had resigned from the police force before they gave him his gun back, though. He was going to be employed as an armed rent-a-cop and wanted his gun.

    If they are only allowed a gun as a LEO, then that gun should be their service weapon alone. Are service weapons confiscated if an officer is suspended because they are under investigation? (and if not, why not?)

    Yeah, I just read the article. I was going off of the headline. I blame the courts. If everyone followed procedure, he still had to sign a conditions of release waiver. That SHOULD have been addressed in his arraignment. I am required to either continue, dismiss, or amend the conditions of release at the time of the arraignment. Since this was a felony charge, it was a real judge. I don't know the outcome of whether the conditions were continued, dismissed, amended. But, if they were dismissed or amended, ALEA had no choice but to give him his gun back.

    Most Police Departments in the United States don't issue sidearms. You have an approved list of weapons and you are responsible for buying your own. In the early 1990's, when we switched from revolvers to semi-automatic pistols, we had a list of five approved models. At that time, the only thing the PD provided was the uniform, badge, ballistic vest, and a car. Everything else the officer needed, he was responsible for buying himself on <$10 per hour.

    It's gotten better, but the local municipal PD still didn't start issuing weapons until 2010. Even then, officers can still use their own sidearms. For instance, if you want to have the grip of your Glock filed down to fit better in your hand, or if you want to put better sights on it, you can't do that to a City owned pistol. You have to buy one and have it done to your own. Then you can carry that pistol at work.

    So when they have to turn in their badge and their gun, it's only the badge?!

    Why the fuck have they not figured out they can buy their own badges too, then NO-ONE can stop them being a cop, bwahahahahaaaaaa!!!!!!!!
