    Former Metro Nashville Police Officer Convicted of Making False Statements to a Firearms Dealer
    Nashville, Tenn. — Edwing Ronal Morales, a former Metropolitan Nashville police officer, was found guilty on December 15, 2010 by a jury, after a two day trial in U.S. District Court in Nashville, of two counts of making false statements to a firearms dealer during two attempted purchases of handguns in 2009, announced Jerry E. Martin, U.S. Attorney for the Middle District of Tennessee; Glenn N. Anderson, Special Agent in Charge of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), Nashville Field Division; Jon Ruttencutter, Resident Agent in Charge of the Department of Homeland Security, Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), Nashville Field Office; and Steve Anderson, Interim Chief of Police, Metropolitan Nashville Police Department.

    According to the trial testimony, Morales went to Guns and Leather, a federal firearms licensee, located in Greenbrier, Tennessee on two occasions in May and July of 2009. Morales attempted to purchase handguns for a friend and co-defendant in the case, Julio Rojas-Lopez. During the attempted purchases, Morales, a Nashville police officer since September 2007, falsely represented on a Firearms Transaction Record, commonly known as a 4473 Form, that he was the actual buyer of handguns that were actually intended for Rojas-Lopez, who was illegally transporting guns to Guatemala. Morales was terminated from the police department in September 2009.

    WOW I can't believe a LEO lied I am so shocked ROFL LOL

    Seriously this type of thing shows No LEO, Judge etc deserves to have their word taken over a civilians just because they are a LEO, Judge etc. It also shows when they cross the line of extreme trust & immunities afforded them they should be held to a much higher standard with appropriate punishment.

    Bad LEOs, Judges etc are bad for all the good ones.

    Given the BATF's history, I would like to know how they demonstrated that Morales "knew" Rojas-Lopez was going to transport the guns to Guatemala....

    Given the short article, was Rojas-Lopez a prohibited person? How do we know that Morales wasn't buying Rojas-Lopez a gift? There are a lot of questions unanswered in the article...but I wouldn't extrapolate the actions of one LEO on to all LEOs...

    Assuming this stories implications are true, I suppose we would be safe guessing why he is a former officer.

    Surely you are not implying that this former LEO's actions do not define all past, present and future LEOs wherever situated?

    My God, man, consider the implications of what you are suggesting here! Evaluating each LEO as an individual rather than making sweeping pronouncements? What kind of precedent will that set? It could be the beginning of the end of the interwebs!

    Blame it on Sixto - now that is a viable plan.

    As a former cop I know first hand that LEO’s are just r-e-g-u-l-a-r people like the rest of us. There are good folks and bad folks wearing those stinking’ badges. Based on my own experience, I worked with some really good guys who truly believed in community service, whereas some were no better than the criminals we arrested. As it is, I respect law enforcement personnel because it’s a thankless job and many quit after just a short period. The guy in the article most likely received some sort of favor in return for his efforts. It happens.

    You have bankers who embezzle, nurses who help themselves to patient meds, Doctors who use drugs, Clergy who are pedophiles, Contractors who take short cuts, and on and on. Cant go around hating and being paranoid about people who make bad decisions or you would never go outside your house.

    EXACTLY! In my experience 99% of ALL people are trustworthy. The rest usually get caught at some point.

    There is a major difference between Law Enforcement & all those other professions though. None of them can do what ever they want to at the time of an encounter & their word in court isn't given more weight than yours in your word against theirs.
