    Public urged to use cellphone cameras vs errant gun owners

    A POLICE official on Saturday called on the public to put their mobile phones to good use by taking pictures of those firing their guns indiscriminately on New Year's Eve.

    Chief Supt. Roberto Rosales, director of the Southern Police District, said that the police have failed to go after errant gun owners for lack of evidence.

    "If the public would be able to provide us with photos or videos of cases of indiscriminate firing, we are confident that the cases filed against these erring civilians will hold water in court," he said.

    Rosales led police chiefs on Friday in taping shut the muzzles of guns owned by an estimated 2,700 policemen.

    "Policemen should not feel ashamed about this. This will help prove that incidents of indiscriminate firing don't come from us," the police official said.

    Officials of the Philippine National Police earlier warned policemen against firing their guns on New Year's Eve, saying that they face dismissal from the service as well as administrative charges.

    Do their officers ignore the law in such numbers as to tape their guns shut?!? If they have such issues, I think something other than putting tape over muzzles needs to be done? Every honest officer on that department should be greatly insulted. How safe does the public feel with officers running around that need their guns taped off?

    The only polite thing I can come up with to say is in tribute to Charlie Brown... "Oh, good grief."

    Maybe they can connect with the other department that is asking citizens to take cell phone pictures of errant shooters???

    Typical third world action.

    Bugs Bunny stuck his finger in the muzzle of Elmer Fudd's shotgun and that worked pretty well. I'm guessing tape would do the trick also.

    There was a story out of Houston of an off duty LEO shooting at a neighbor's house on New Year's eve. Arrested and suspended without pay.

    Who needs "cocked-and-locked"?
    Just use "cocked-and-taped."

    Apparently it keeps guns from firing!



    Is it not a bit irresponsible to ask civilians to photograph people who are so irresponsible and dangerous as to be willing to fire guns into the air indiscriminately? I mean, imagine . . . Some guy fires into the air, and looks over at someone else who is taking an incriminating photo of him! Do you think that's going to go well?! Following the police's advice could get you beaten or killed. I wonder if your family could sue the police department then.

    I'm with those who say that if a police department has officers who are willing to be so STUPID as to "celebrate" the new year by firing into the air, the solution is going to be a lot more elusive than a few strips of tape.

    Besides, are they talking about some sort of special tape that only the command has, so that the cops couldn't fire the guns and then re-tape them for the inspection. (There is going to be an inspection of the guns afterward, right? Otherwise what's the point?)

    A cop who does this should be jailed, and should never be allowed to work as a law enforcement officer again in his life.

    How did that one turn out?

    A judge on Wednesday reset the hearing for a Houston police officer accused of firing his weapon into the air on New Year's Eve.

    Officer Ricardo Alberto Pineda, 27, was arrested by the Harris County Sheriff’s Office and charged with deadly conduct by discharging a firearm in a habitat area.

    He’s been relieved of duty with pay pending an investigation. He must turn in his badge, but not his guns if they are his own.

    Harris County officials said a neighbor in the 8800 block of Rustling Leaves called police because a couple of rounds were in his garage, and one came close to hitting him.

    The deputy went to the car to get a clipboard to take notes when Officer Pineda approached him.

    Several people at the party where shots were fired were detained, and the deputy asked where the shots were from. Pineda did not answer the question, officials said.

    The homeowner of house where the party was had a permit to carry a concealed weapon, but that wasn’t the gun that was fired.

    Harris County said the homeowner reported that other partygoers told him that Officer Pineda had been firing a weapon at the house.

    Officer Pineda was then detained, and the deputy said he was not cooperative. His vehicle was towed, and in it they found a .40-caliber handgun and an AR-15 rifle.

    Several casings were recovered at the scene that could have been fired from the rifle, officials said.

    Based on witnesses’ statements, Pineda was charged with the third-degree felony. His bond was set at $30,000, and he is not in jail.

    According to HPD, Officer Pineda was sworn in May 2003 and assigned to the Southeast Patrol.
