Paulette Sidi wrote, "So unprofessional and disrespectful of his gives such a bad name to the rest of our Police Force.where lots of guys are working under huge amounts of stress and harmful conditions and dont drink on the job."
Albert Lammers commented, "to all those that are trying to condone this i would like to know what chance he has of avoiding someone taking his gun! many crimes committed with stolen guns are with guns taken off cops through neglect. that's ok! your mother, brother, father son etc may be the next one killed with an illegal gun."
