What is missed in all this puffery from Blunder about how this is somehow OK is the fact that the charges were completely dismissed and Lt Augustine was cleared. At that point the continuing hold that DC has on his guns is a violation of his 5th amendment rights as well as theft and should be considered as such. The police chief should be held liable for any damage to or missing items and if not returned prosecuted for said theft of firearms under DC's own laws. The irony of the position the chief finds himself in is classic.
They should have been returned in a timely manner and this would never have been an issue, but DC in their ever lasting hyper fear of guns in the hands of the law abiding brought this on them selves.

Every time I drove around the I-495 with a glock and about 50 bullets under the bunk in the sleeper I was like, "I wonder how many laws and company policies I am breaking? Oh well, sure beats being raped and/or robbed in one of these inner city hellholes, or a Louisiana rest area hahaha." It added a little excitement to an otherwise extremely boring job.
My bad for thinking you took this discussion seriously.
