    Is it Wrong for the Milwaukee Police to keep the Gun

    As some of you may have known back in early Feb a CCW holder stopped armed robbers at a Milwaukee Aldi's. the CCW holder was cleared of all charges and the robbers were caught and charged.
    Now the armed citizen would like his gun back. The Milwaukee police say that wont happen due to it still being evidence.
    I read that at first the police chief was against the CCW at first then changed his mind? I am not sure what his position is now.

    Do i need to carry my cheaper guns? ha ha..

    Whats your thoughts?

    Have the BGs been convicted. If not, then it could be evidence...

    Yes he should get the gun back. I don't understand how the GG's gun is evidence against the BG...

    "I call your attention to exhibit G, the weapon of the good guy that eventually stopped the accused of his robbery."

    or maybe

    "Ladies and Gentlemen of the Jury, I call your attention to exhibit G, the weapon used by the CCW holder that stopped my client in the act of his robbery of the Milwaukee Aldi's."

    Guess I just don't get it.

    Shouldn't have taken it in the first place.

    The excuse used by the DA is that they may need the "good guys" gun to help convict the good guy of something. That is, if they can think of something that will stick.
    Anti-gunners seem to believe that if we just pass enough laws, we can have utopia. Unfortunately, utopia is NOT one of our choices.

    It's only evidence of Milwaukee's liberal anti-gun attitude. When a LEO draws their weapon is it taken and placed in evidence? The weapon was not discharged from I see so give it back.

    Another reason to have another gun like your EDC in the safe and for heavy range use.

    Agree! They should not took the gun at all. It has nothing to do with the BG's case. That is why I don't carry my Kimber super ultra carry any more. I switched to a Glock that I got on sale for $450.00. I hope I never need to use it for SD. If I do I figure the "proper authorities" are going to hang on to it for a while. Rather them have my $450 than $1,295.00.
    While I got a whole lot of bs from my 1911 friends, they are aware of how well I can shoot my new Glock and its cost.

    It would be funny to see some "Denny Crane" type lawyer with the Gun as exhibit"A" in the court room.

    Until the court case is completed the guys gun is in fact evidence. Upon the completion of the case he can file paperwork and they will release it.

    Do they have a certain time period? What if the BG wants to appeal? Could be a long time before they return it.

    The GG's gun was not used in the robbery, and therefore is not evidence in the robbery case.
    The GG's testimony is evidence in the robbery case, but his weapon is not. It played no role in the robbery.

    Using that logic, wouldn't the whole Aldi's and all of its contents be evidence? They should close the store until the trial in case someone steps on the crime scene or moves something. The GG's gun is evidence of nothing in the BG's case. The only reason to keep it would be to charge the GG with something.

    This is my point exactly. From everything I read and heard it justs sound like they will string it out and not give him his gun back. I believe Wisconsin Carry has even started the legal court work to get it back. But I cant confrim this
