Your government at work.
The U.S. Park Police has lost track of a huge supply of handguns, rifles and shotguns, according to a report released Thursday on the law enforcement agency responsible for safeguarding the National Mall and critical American landmarks.
In the scathing report, the inspector general’s office of the Department of Interior faults staff at the agency for having no idea how many weapons they control and says the department has no clear policies or procedures for investigating missing weapons. The office said top managers, including the police chief, have shown a "lackadaisical attitude toward firearms management."
I’ve got about 24 years with the military and it’s often hard to grasp just how out of control our civilian side is. Is no one, anywhere in government accountable for anything? It seems not.
I’m not talking about conspiracies here just plain incompetence.
Weapons accountability isn’t difficult, just like financial accountability. However, if you never make any leaders pay for mistakes who will care? It’s a top down thing.
