The disgracefully lax Indiana gun laws allow for something like this. More than the laws, it's the attitude towards guns. That cop should be publicly flogged with a bamboo cane and then forfeit his gun rights for life.Indiana prosecutors often recuse themselves from cases involving local police officers with whom they work on a regular basis, but Wilhelm told the state police the circumstances surrounding the incident did not meet the elements of a crime under Indiana code.
What kind of message does it send to all the other gun owners in Indiana, many of whom are even less trained and less safety conscious than police officers? I'll tell you what kind. It sends a message that guns and gun rights are sacred. Nothing should interfere with them, not even the safety and protection of 4-year-old children.
