ah, but it is not "one bad apple". It is also all those who did not arrest and book her.
I would try to keep anyone from staring at my tighty whiteys through the huge hole that just got made in my pants. Then check to see if anyone else was hurt, and finally render the malfunctioning weapon nonfunctional (unload it) in the bathroom. Going home for a new set of pants (and underwear) would follow shortly.
(assuming that like this story, that a malfunctioning firearm goes off in the holster)
How did you determine that the pistol was a Glock?
My bet is that it was a cheap rimfire pistol and dropping the bag caused a "Slam-fire" discharge.
Of course. A 9mm probably wouldn't have even gone through the purse
I'm pretty sure that each bullet looks for a toddler to drive itself into......
Not to be inflammatory, but
Someone in the Dept. hired her, someone trained her, someone supervised her. will anything happen to them?
As a person who was born, raised, and has spent 56 years in the St. Louis area, the answer to your question is NOTHING!. Not a thing. Nada.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch will probably have this now ex-cop up for an award within six months. Fits their profile.
Affirmative action has kept qualified firemen from becoming fire captains in the City of St. Louis for approximately five years. Burning babies don't effect these folks, why should a stupid b***h slinging lead in a fast food outlet?
I wonder what would have happened if a legal CCW carrier would have screwed up this bad. My bet is they still would be trying to make bail and the STL PD would have them on a pike by now. Safe bet.
The bright side is that at least they didn't have their AD with an MP5 pointed at someone.
Thanks, Tex. You just made my day!
I thought of this angle too...
If it was a crappy enough gun to fire when dropped, lets hope it was crappy enough to disintegrate when it hit the road.
"I Ain't Got No Gun!"
So they did Not find the firearm. And, they did Not release her name. Is this a case of "protecting one of your own", or "no gun, no crime" ??? Whatever it is, this is simply unbelieveable... and I'm betting we'll never know who it was, and that she won't face ANY repurcussions for it, aside from maybe jockying a desk for a month.
....NOT in black sequins. Maybe it wasn't the gun that went off; just an explosion of extraordinarily bad fashion taste.
she lied from the start,so I would be willing to bet the gun wasn't thrown from the car at all,but hidden or sold to someone else.
For more on cops being careless with guns,
From the Jan 11,2006 edition of the Atlanta Journal Constitution:
(any typos are probably mine)
"Law & Order
Police cleared in gun case
DeKalb County police Chief Louis Graham and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation said Thursday that they found no evidence that DeKalb police hampered a Henry County police case involving a DeKalb officer's stolen gun.
Graham said he asked for the GBI review because of a TV news report that he felt implied that DeKalb officials tried to stop a Henry investigation of the police service weapon stolen last fall from the Henry County home of DeKalb police Sgt. Alicia McIver.
McIver reported the theft to Henry police and she said she suspected that her son had taken the gun,said Sgt. Palmin Thomas,head of the Henry police internal affairs unit.Palmin said McIver later had learned her son had sold the gun to another man.The gun later was recovered by Atlanta police during an arrest.
Thomas said Henry police contacted McIver ,who said she did not want to prosecute and indicated her superiors had consented.Henry police then closed the case.
GBI spokesman John Bankhead confirmed Tuesday that GBI agents interviewed Henry police and concluded that no one from DeKlb County had tried to influence the investigation.
Graham had placed Mcver on administrative leave last Saturday but said he will return her to regular duty today.He said he ordered an internal investigation into the loss of her weapon which could lead to disiplinary action against her.
(My caps here):
Graham said the incident was THE FOURTH TIME McIver HAD REPORTED A MISSING WEAPON,TWICE IN CAR BREAK INS.He said the first three incidents took place before he took office in November 2004 and that McIver was disciplined."
So Chief Graham is more worried about being accused of hindering another county's investigation than four guns on the street and a cops son getting off with no punishment.I guess since it was recovered it was "okay"?
I would be very suspicious that the son stole the other three or gave info to his friends that the gun was there for the stealing.
Keep in mind,DKalb county is where the incoming sherrif was murdered by the outgoing one in the late 1990's.
More affirmivitave action in progress,and a good example of why I would never live in DeKalb county.
SHOULD anything happen to them? I mean, my momma taught me right from wrong, but that doesn't mean I always made the right choices when I was younger.
Besides, you can't blame a person for hiring someone when there are such huge problems with the hiring practices for public service these days (affirmative action, quotas, etc.). Obviously, the best person isn't going to get hired, but is it the hiring manager's fault that the system isn't worth crap?
