At least it is a good time of year to get time on the beach...
I wonder if he had to wipe again?
Thank God for the dad of the child who found it. He taught his son the proper way to react when coming upon a weapon. Notice how the media hasn't latched onto this story because it didn't have a more tragic ending? Far be it for them to use it as an example of how we can all learn from our dads and how to be safe in this type of situation. Bad news for the detective, though.
Not the sort of letter I ever look forward to writing.....
Dear Chief / Sheriff, on date and time I..................
Anybody can have brain freeze at any given time.I smell a definate reprimand and possible suspension.
Same thing happened twice in the hotel I worked in back years ago. One was an officer I knew from my days in the USAF and was employed by a local PD in Dade County, Florida; he left his off-duty weapon in a dresser drawer and thought his wife had packed it up prior to checking out, and she thought he had done the same. The other was an undercover female federal agent who had left her Chief's Special under a pillow during an operation. Both were extremely relieved to get their property back !!!
He'll be getting some time on the beach for this. Thank God it didn't turn out ugly!
MIKIESPLACE, as we know this ALMOST happens all the time. A last minute check-around has saved many a career.
Police gun belts are heavy. Nobody wants to give away their position while they are on the hopper.
Somebody should work up the stats on this kind of narrow escape. I leave it to you.
Glad the weapon didn't fall into the wrong hands. It could have been ugly!
I found the same thing a few years ago at a ski area bathroom, i took the weapon and waited outside the restroom in the cafeteria, about 5 minutes later, here comes an off duty Massachusetts police officer running to the restroom with a harried look on his face, i approached him, and after he identified himself, i returned said weapon. The look on that poor guys face was pure panic.
