Police: We're missing an automatic weapon

Quote:Police: We're missing an automatic weapon

Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey said that an audit of one of the department's main gun storage units has revealed that an M-16 rifle is missing.

The regularly-scheduled audit was conducted last week of 1,356 M-16s the department received from the federal government in 2009. Those weapons are held in crates in large vault at the department's training academy, Ramsey said. Only "a couple" of people have the access code to the vault, which is also locked with a deadbolt, he said.

"It was either taken or there was an inventory error to begin with," Ramsey said.

Ramsey said he has notified the FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms about the missing weapon. The last audit of the guns was conducted in December and everything was accounted for then.

Ramsey has ordered an audit of every weapon in the department and is changing the locks to the storage room in the wake of the incident. There were no surveillance cameras on the vault, but Ramsey said he is having cameras installed now, though he noted "that's a day late and a dollar short."

So does Commissioner Ramsey lose his right to carry a firearm since the police department lost a firearm? Like Commissioner Ramsey said in the past, it's only fair that officers follow the same laws they are entrusted to enforce.

WAIT... so we can get cameras on the gun vault... but putting cameras and audio recordings in interview rooms "needs study"?

Give me a fucking break?

What could would cameras do anyway? Last inventory was 2009, I doubt whatever surveillance system they're putting in place is going to have indefinite storage and retention.

I thought it said that the last audit was in December?

1,356 m16s? Cripes, I knew it was bad over there, didn't know it was that bad.

My buddy is a Philly police officer and used them for long gun training. He said the majority of them are from the Vietnam War era.

I missed that. If only a couple of people had access to the room, I'm assuming those people are currently sweating it out in an interrogation room, right?
