  • Officer could lose job over gun

    Sometimes truth is stranger than fiction.


    It's strange enough for an offier to marry a parolee but risk his job for allowing a parolee access to his firearm? Couldn't he even face criminal charges?

    she is cute......but a felon.

    Luke 3:14
    Then some soldiers asked him [Jesus], "And what should we do?" He replied, "Don't extort money and don't accuse people falsely–be content with your pay."

      Thats California for ya.

      I know of several cases where an ex con has weapons in the house. As long as he/she does not have one in immediate possesion, there is no problem.

      It is his right to have his gun in his home.This seems a bit extreme to me.

      It never ceases to amaze me that behaviour that is overlooked or not even considered in other states is played to the hilt in the anti-gun states.

      She was convicted of stabbing a person. Are all knives in her home illegal too ? If not, why not ?

      Whats the issue with guns? It appear to be just more heavy handed antigun tactics in the formerly great state.

        I wonder why so many people in California go along with all the bad "law" they have there?

          She will probably be freed. My sons ex-mother-in-law moves all over the ountry, probably violating laws. But her family "looks the other way" while she steals money from them. They feel so sorry for the b*tch and don't want to see her back in jail. They forgot the cardinal rule with her: Never leave you purse, wallet, checkbook or credit cards around her. Do not let her know where you bank. Warn other not to leave their valuables around her or the poor thing "can't help herself."*GAG* She is so disgusting.

            Because the majority of them want those kind of laws. It's California.

              There are a few things about this story that I don't understand.

              First, why would a pen pal relationship develop with someone who was in prison, especially considering why she was there?

              The bedroom floor seemed like a strange place to leave the gun, especially considering all the precautions he had taken. Why not at least put it on a shelf or in a drawer in the garage?

              I feel sorry for him. It sounds as though he was just lonely and still grieving for his first wife. People do strange things when they are lonely. I have seen examples of that by people I know, just nothing quite that extreme. She hasn't been out of prison long enough for me to decide if she has really changed her ways. It does happen sometimes.

              I am probably being more sentimental than practical, but I hope it works out for them.

                Good, he deserves it.

                  He said that it was the first time that he didn't secure it in his safe. Isn't it typical that when someone is arrested, "it was the first time that I did it, officer".

                  I don't have any sympathy for either of them.

                  MikeTx, when is a gun related law not a "bad" law? Answer, when it is repealed?

                    Buried deep somewhere in our SOP is a regulation that prohibits us from associating with felons or known criminals, unless they are immediate family.

                    This officer married her after she got out of prison, he knew she was a felon, I'm sure they have the same SOP regulation concerning felons my department has. Regardless of the gun laws in California, in my opinion he still did a Romper Room No No. Cops shouldn't be associating with felons while they are in or out of prison on anything but a professional level. The exception being immediate family or a wife you married prior to her becoming a felon. Of course if I was still married and my wife went to prison, she wouldn't have to worry about being married after she got out.

                      California has so many laws (it's a Statute Law state) that I suspect every Californian violates at least one every day and is unaware of it, as are most of the LEOs who are expected to enforce them. The situation is not much better in most of the other states.

                        why marry someone who's been convicted of attempted murder?
