The Daily News of Washington Parish LA reports
For at least the third time in three years, a Rayburn Correctional Center street cleaning crew found a gun on the side of the road and instead of using it to make a quick getaway, the men who spend most of their time locked behind bars left the weapon alone and reported it to the officer in charge.
The gun, a Titan .25 caliber pistol, was loaded.
The six-man RCC crew found the weapon Tuesday morning at Sullivan Drive and E. 9th Street in Bogalusa.
“They turned it over to a public works employee who turned it over to us,” said Police Chief Joe Culpepper. “I can’t think of any guns we’re looking for, but it’s normal procedure to send it to the St. Tammany crime lab where they have a gun database.”
Wait a minute, what was that about a database? Does the NRA know about this? They should be able to get the St. Tammany crime lab to tow the line, don't you think?
About those prisoners in Louisiana, I guess they just don't make 'em like they used to.
What do you think? Please leave a comment.
