  1. The Guy threw the Firearm in the Nearby Bushes this Weapon Should be Recovered because the Culprit must Return to Search for his Weapon .Thats very lazy on the police part .They should Search from the Bottom coming up to the Direction where the Guy threw the weapon in an extended line .Thats a.poor excuse .The Supervisor should have them Retufn to the Scene to Recover the Firearm.

  2. Wow so many people walking around with unlicensed firearms, sounds like the wild wild west. Helen of the wild wild west need to do more stop and search???
