    Purse goes bang, blows its secret
    By Heather Ratcliffe
    ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH
    01/23/2006

    Black sequins rained down in the Dairy Queen after the explosion.

    Some thought a car had backfired in the parking lot. But that wouldn't explain the sequins, or the smoke, or the smell of gunpowder in the south St. Louis County restaurant.

    Then everyone's attention turned to a woman in line - the one with a shredded sequined purse on the tile floor near her feet.

    "She picked up her purse like it was some kind of disease," explained Shelley White, the store manager on duty.
    "I ain't got no gun," was the only thing the stranger told the crowd in the restaurant before gathering her purse and teenage daughter from a nearby booth and running out of the place about 1 p.m. Friday.

    But she did have a gun, investigators said, apparently a low-quality one that discharged by accident when she dropped her purse.

    She had a secret too, one that she might have kept had White not rushed to the window and called out the license number for a customer to jot down. The fleeing woman was an off-duty St. Louis police officer.

    The bullet blew a hole in a window and came to a safe landing in front of a doorway. A fragment struck a van outside. But no one was injured.

    "I don't know how that bullet didn't kill anyone," said White, whose family owns the franchise. "I looked at the people outside, and they were just standing there with their mouths hanging open."

    St. Louis County police tracked down the city officer, who they said first denied even being at the restaurant, in the 4300 block of Telegraph Road. Then she told police that she had fled because she thought she was under fire. Finally she confessed to the accident, police said.

    The officer, whose name was not released pending consideration of charges against her, eventually told police that she had thrown the weapon out her car window along Interstate 255 because she was afraid she was going to be in trouble.

    County officers spent hours scouring the area along the westbound lanes in the dark and rain Friday, looking for the weapon; they never found it.

    The woman resigned from the force Friday after the St. Louis police internal affairs unit opened an investigation. She had been on the department for three years.

    Said White, "I just can't believe she's a police officer."

    Thank Christ is was a cop. STL (and KC) fought tooth and nail against MO concealed carry and this would be all over the place if it was a CCW permit holder who did this.

    Student Finds Assault Rifle In School Parking Lot
    Rifle Left By Police Officer After Training

    POSTED: 7:24 am EST January 24, 2006
    UPDATED: 7:36 am EST January 24, 2006


    FAIRFIELD TOWNSHIP, Ohio -- Officials said students at Edgewood High School in Butler County did the right thing Monday when one of them found an assault rifle.

    Students were out of school Monday, so the Fairfield Township Police Department used the school's parking lot for training.

    But when police packed up, an officer left an AR-15 rifle behind.

    A student arriving on campus for baseball practice found the gun and turned it over to his coach.


    The Fairfield Township police chief said the officer who left the rifle has an excellent record.

    There is no word on any possible disciplinary action.

    that's just the excuse they give you. The real reason is because LEO's are tools of the state, therefore, the fact that LEO's are human too, and therefore occasionally make mistakes...

    Well, let's just leave it that private citizens owning firearms doesn't really serve the aims of the state, and occasionally it can be downright inconvenient.

    Anything else is merely a smokescreen.

    Anyone got the vid of that stupid woman cop where there was s suspect laying on the ground with another officer cuffing the suspect when the stupid bitch had an ND right next to the guy'd head.

    Why do these things only happen to female cops?

    I'm surprised they didn't suspend the kid for simply looking at that AR, much less GIVING it to the coach. If I were that kid, I'd have cleared it, broken it down into parts, and hidden it until I could come back for it later. Then I would've killed some illegal immigrants with it, wiped my prints, and left it at the scene.

    I'm making all that up. I hate guns, and would probably cry if I ever saw one in real life.
