    Gun running in NYC

    If the Union is once severed, the line of separation will grow wider and wider, and the controversies which are now debated and settled in the halls of legislation will then be tried in fields of battle and determined by the sword.

    Just like Holder was behind Fast and Furious. Bloomie is probably behind this.

    And I’m sure his Lordship bloomburg will swear the guns came from down south; better check the property locker instead.

    Wait...You mean the guns weren't bought at evil VA gun stores and illegally transported to NY? Say it ain't so!

    From the article "Patrick Lynch, president of the police union, suggested the length and uncertainty of the probe were driving officers to "a breaking point."" This tells you a whole lot. Honest people with nothing to hide would not have a breaking point because of an investigation.

    Bad Cops tarnish the shield and make it difficult for people to trust and respect LEO's,I'm pretty sure that there were a lot more Cops that knew about the Illegal activity,but ignored it because they were fellow LEO's,The fact that LEO's would sell guns Illegally that would end up at crime scenes and even potentially be used to kill fellow LEO's just goes to show that they were more interested in making money and didn't care who got hurt

    Before we get too smug here in TX:

    " Texas DA Accused Of Offering Leniency For Cash
    Suspected drug runners and money launderers received light sentence or escaped criminal charges altogether by forfeiting cash to prosecutors in a Texas county through which a well-known drug trafficking route passes."

    "As a result, authorities collected more than $800,000 in less than a year using a practice that essentially let suspects buy their way out of allegations that, if proven, would probably have resulted in prison sentences."

    Actually, you would be surprised. If you've ever been part of an organization that's being investigated, being watched and questioned starts to wear on you after awhile. I worked for a place that had about $75,000 go missing. I wasn't involved. I wasn't even working the day it was stolen. But after several weeks with no answer as to who had done it, everybody in the organization was feeling the stress, myself included.
