Shortly afterward, in a separate incident police think occurred sometime between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m., thieves broke into a vehicle in an officer’s garage and took a uniform shirt, nameplate, handcuffs and a stereo, police said. The vehicle was not a police squad car.

Daly won't like this. O'Sorry their his Cops, should be OK. If it was a regular Joe, I hate to think of what would happen at the hands of Mr. Daly.
A LEO has a responsibility to protect his weapons. You leave for work and return from work every day armed, so everyone who sees you knows there are at least one gun in the house! If your looking to steal a weapon, why not go where you actually know there is one? Should have been locked in a safe while not being worn, IMHO.

This is what we have been telling the anti-gun crowd for years. You ban guns and criminals will still get them. Through the black market or theft, and yes, theft from police and other agencies.
This is a perfect example of that. Yet, they still believe that making it hard to obtain and keep firearms in the hands of legal people will somehow thwart the use of them. The facts stare them right in the face and still they don't see it.

We should be seeing a case on the news one of these days of a home invasion by someone posing as a Police Officer :(
The anti's choose not to see, but there are no atheists in the foxholes. They will wait until it's too late.
