Uniformed Thieves

It’s shit like this that makes the RCOB drop faster than a Kardashian’s panties:

According to one woman, the China Grove police improperly seized several firearms belonging to her and her husband almost four years ago, and despite the fact that no charges have ever been filed against the couple, they’ve been unable to get their property returned to them.

Read the whole thing to get the full flavor of the bureaucratic bastardy involved.  (Red Curtain Of Blood Alert.)

Here’s what I think.  Either those guns are part of the China Grove PD’s inventory, or they were just taken as personal property by one or more of the cops, or they were sold off at a gun show by the police and the proceeds pocketed.

At the very least, the couple involved should get full restitution for the guns, at today’s prices.  What I would like to see is the PD or its officers being charged with theft, with prison sentences very much in play.

When cops act like thieves and hide behind the badge, they should expect no mercy from the law that they allegedly swore to uphold.


  1. I’m sure far more of that type of crime goes on than is reported. I’m sure lots of cash goes missing too

  2. In 2002 I was attacked by a Rottweiler at night while walking my 2 spaniels on leashes. I inquired with the police dept and was told that if I have a license to carry (I did, and do) I should shoot the attacking dog. I asked about the illegality of discharging a firearm in the city limits and was told that I would have to surrender my forearm pending an investigation and it would be returned to me at a later date. During this period an investigation revealed 256 firearms were missing from the evidence room and had been sold and given away by the police officer that was in charge of the evidence room. My carry gun is a Beretta 92FS INOX and if it had been in that evidence room I would have lost it.

    The take away here is that anybody that possesses a gun for protection should have at least TWO because the law stipulates that you may have to surrender the gun that you use to protect yourself and must then rely on your 2nd gun for that purpose.

    FWIW, I was attacked by dogs (Rotts and GSD’s) 2 more times over the next few months and my wife was attacked once. We moved a few months later to our new home that had been under construction and we were never attacked again.
