A potential maximum of a $1000.00 fine for failure to properly secure his service revolver sounds like a pretty light slap on the wrist to me.

I am not so sure that a plain old ordinary citizen would be facing such a light consequence if they too carelessly and foolishly left a loaded firearm lying around their house and a 15 year old boy used it to end his life. My guess is that the plain old ordinary citizen would be facing far worse charges.

Besides, Parson's apparent sloppiness and forgetfullness when it comes to the safe handling of deadly weapons does not instill a great deal of confidence to the Taxpayer, as far as his ability to effectively lead a police force......
