Only One is 'Remorseful'

A former Clarendon Hills police officer charged with stealing four guns collected during a turn-in program was sentenced to two years probation Friday after pleading guilty to felony official misconduct.
Probation? Now what do you think would have happened had you stolen four firearms?

Let's take a look at the firearms that were collected in the 'buyback' that he stole:

Ithaca M1911 A1 World War II U.S. Army .45-caliber
.22-caliber Short Butler derringer
Smith & Wesson .38-caliber Airlight Special
Mossberg 590 12-gauge shotgun;
Connecticut Valley Bobcat .50-caliber blackpowder

So he picked out the collector pieces, novelties and carry/defense guns for himself.

Don't you feel safer?

I have mixed feelings about this one. I am very happy some nice pieces were not shredded into scrap. At the same time, I am disgusted that one of those who are charged with upholding the law would do such a thing. Then again, I also think that most weapons turned in like this should be sold to FFL dealers or to the public at large. Even firearms in poor condition can often times provide repair parts that can be in very short supply.

I wonder what condition that Ithica is in. I bet even "in the white" it would fetch a decent price at auction.
