Police Patrol Rifle Left Unattended in Dayton/Bellevue Area
This is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things | 2018 #1
A patrol rifle was left leaning against a tire, unattended, during a multiple agency response in the Cincinnati area. Law enforcement officers were responding to what at least one report described as a domestic disturbance — with at least one shot fired — in progress. The primary officer apparently worked to establish a rapport with a suspect, convincing him to step out onto the porch of the his residence, but setting aside his rifle to do so. We’re unsure how many cover officers there were, or how they are armed.
The primary officer handed the patrol rifle off to another officer before moving to talk to the suspect. That officer leaned against the tire of a parked vehicle while the call progressed.
And there it remained.
A citizen recording the event called out to officers to notify them of the unattended weapon and it was eventually secured.
Mistakes happen, and they happen even to the best of us, but some sure look a lot worse than others (and however true that is, there’s no excuse).
