I guess I have high standards for police chiefs. If they are properly trained, they should never misuse their guns, particularly in this way. In my opinion, cops should use their training wherever they are, whether it's the bedroom, the police station, or on the streets.
If you disagree, so be it.
Until otherwise shown, I'm going with the "doing something stupid (but not sexual) with the gun" theory.
"God is the name by which I designate all things which cross my path violently and recklessly, all things which alter my plans and intentions, and change the course of my life, for better or for worse."
