Today's "Law-Abiding" Gun Owner

Wouldn't you think a brave & noble police officer (or oinky pig) would be the very definition of "law-abiding." (Where else in contemporary usage do we find "abiding," by the way? No usage I can think of.)

And yet ...
A Prince George's County jury found a D.C. police officer guilty of two counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of his mistress and their infant child, News4's Jackie Bensen reported.

[...]

Phillips was arrested in June 2011 after police located the bodies of 20-year-old Wright and her daughter, Jaylin, in a park outside Washington. Prosecutors said Phillips shot Wright and then drove the child - still strapped in the car seat of her mother's car with the doors closed and the windows up - a short distance away, where he left her to die.

A heat advisory was in effect, and temperatures inside the car reached 125 degrees, Prince George’s County State’s Attorney Angela Alsobrooks said.
Do the D.C. police even do background checks for employment? And if background checks done by the police dep't. in our nation's capital can't determine they're about to hire a murderer, what good are any other such checks going to do?

This is not a call to forget background checks, but a demonstration that any one can flip at any time, background check or not, so just maybe no one should have guns. Especially not the fucking police, most of whom are thuggish compensating criminals to begin w/. Fuck them!
