It got worse after Katrina. Cops, including the Captain, of an outside police force, supposedly there to "help" were caught red-handed with dozens of leather jackets that were taken, not from the robber in the street, but from the store that had them displayed. Now, is that today's police officer? In too many cases, the answer is yes. And, you wonder why people want guns to protect themselves? The guns taken away in New Orleans have still not been returned. Police say that anyone claiming a weapon has to have "proof" that it is his, and has to be fingerprinted, and the weapon registered before it will be returned. Sound familiar? Sen. Harry Reid?.
