There's a special place in Hell for these guys

"Four D.C. police officers are suspected of stealing toys donated to the Marine Corps’ Toys for Tots program, police said Wednesday."

Yet these class acts are examples of the people whom the D.C. government fervently claimed were the "only ones professional enough" to own and carry legally owned firearms for personal protection in the District. The ordinary peasants would probably just turn out to be some common thieves or something.

"The Metropolitan Police Department has come under fire from community leaders in the crime-ridden sixth district for closing a substation on Pennsylvania Avenue, even as violent crimes are on the rise in the district."

Meaning Mayor Adrian Fenty, Police Chief Cathy Lanier and their cronies on the D.C. City Council were perfectly willing to cruelly deny their constituents their natural right of self-protection, even as they reduced the already-not-enough police presence in the area. Fortunately for the residents, the Supreme Court put the local martinets back in their place.

That's some quality police work they've got going on over there.
