Not just guns, but grenade launchers?! Really?
Hundreds of Park Police guns unaccounted for, report says - CNNPolitics.com
"In a force of approximately 640 officers, the report says, hundreds of weapons were not properly accounted for. The auditors also allege that the agency has more than 1,400 extra weapons, including 477 military-style automatic and semiautomatic rifles.
The head of the Park Police officers' union, Ian Glick, said there are shortcomings in the "antiquated system of weapon tracking," but public safety was never put in jeopardy.
"None of these weapons were ever seized in a crime, or found on someone who shouldn't have one," he said. While the tracking system has its failings, he said, "all the weapons are accounted for. Every weapon, every stick of ammo, everything is accounted for. But it's not accounted for in the National Park Service weapons inventory computer system.'"
There are only 640 officers, but there are hundreds of weapons unaccounted for?! And why all the firepower? And what the hell is a "stick of ammo?" How can everything be accounted for but not properly accounted for?
Dude, I was born, but not yesterday.
If the Swedes are only losing the occasional car, they should feel good.
