    Shocking...............It took the DA this long to decline charges.

      The chief will continue being chief and nothing of this will ever set her back because she's the chief. She will receive some training on the issue and that's it. Had it been one of the **** ant road guys that made the same mistake he'd be plowed over and hung out to dry so fast before they'd ever consider any kind of "training".

      A former university PD chief in my area was not once but twice had an accidental weapon discharge at not one but TWO university PDs where she was employed as the chief. Guess what she's now the director of public safety at a large university in the Columbus area. Happens all the time. Double standards.

          That's an ignorant comment.

        No. No it’s not. SHE is protected by being a female Chief.

        You, on the other hand, need to learn about life before you post The Stupid.

          Come on guys! You've been banging this around for almost five months now. Time to let it go.

          Take a deep breath, count to 10 and ask yourselves, what would be the normal administrative punishment for an officer who misplaces their gun in the john, discovers their error minutes later, takes immediate action in an attempt to correct the matter and then self reports the violation? It's food for a couple day media frenzy, but its far from termination time.

          And as far as ol' Skeeter is concerned, he found the gun, but instead of taking prompt action to see it is returned to its rightful owner, he conceald the firearm and took it home (Theft of lost property under California law and in this case, a felony). He only returned it 24 hours later after all the publicity as to who the gun belongs to made the gun too hot to keep. More than likely, the only reason he wasn't prosecuted was that doing so would have kept the fact that the Chief lost the gun in the headlines for weeks, needlessly embarassing her and the city.
          Going too far is half the pleasure of not getting anywhere

            It happens probably twice a year somewhere in the country. Do a google search and you find hundreds of responses. You rarely will be able to find a termination associated with the "crime"

            Just like you almost never find a conviction for someone leaving their kid in the back of a hot car........................once again you hear of it happening a lot but rarely is there a serious LEGAL consequence.
            Since some people need to be told by notes in crayon .......Don't PM me with without prior permission. If you can't discuss the situation in the open forum ----it must not be that important

            My new word for the day is FOCUS, when someone irritates you tell them to FOCUS

              for every general statement you can ALWAYS find an exception.

              STATISTICALLY and nationally those types of convictions are extremely rare

            That is why I was surprised the DA's office held off for so long in announcing that they would not proceed with charges. Everyone knew she was untouchable in this event. Maybe her punishment was to let it linger for a bit.

            But not so long as she felt threatened and mistreated due to her protected status and give her the excuse to sue for a gazillion dollars!!

              So, does everyone think she is the first cop in history to leave a firearm in a public restroom? In my 24 years LE experience I can remember at least 3 incidents.

              More recently, a cop in a nearby city left the rifle case containing his issued M4 full-auto carbine on top of his car and drove away, dropping the cased rifle onto the road. Couple of months later it turned up 40 miles away in the hands of the second or third person to possess it since the loss was known.

              Cops are people. People make mistakes. People do stupid things. Nothing new here.
