Australia: Cops Notice 4 Training Rounds Missing, Issue APB. Seriously.
BRISBANE, AUSTRALIA — An Australian police department lost a measly four rounds of ammunition on the trip from the police headquarters to a location where officers trained, according to The Courier Mail reports.
Four rounds missing? Not a big deal to lose four cartridges, shells, etc., unless they’re Stinger missile sets or the like, right?
So wrong. So wrong. The police appear to have lost their minds.
The Courier Mail reports that the Brisbane police have released an APB for the four rounds.
I really, truly wish I was kidding.
As The Courier Mail reports:
The ammunition went missing at Coorparoo on September 20 while police were travelling to Belmont to conduct firearms training about 7am.
“The training ammunition is described as being approximately 3cm in length and a bronze and copper colour (see pictured),” a police statement said. “The training ammunition is to be treated as a dangerous item if found and members of the public are urged not pick up or handle the training ammunition. “Police are encouraging anyone who locates the training ammunition to call Policelink on 131 444.”
Don’t touch the ammunition! It might… do something!
Well, we can’t have that.
This sounds like something from The Onion. It’s not.
Instead, it’s just an object lesson in what happens when folks who don’t know jack about proper armed citizenry make Second Amendment-sized calls.
It’s completely insane. May God prevent us to ever sinking to this level of ignorance and incompetence, not to mention disarmament.
