    Upper Darby Police Using Recycled Guns To Generate Electricity


    http://philadelphia.cbslocal.com/201...e-electricity/
    UPPER DARBY, Pa. (CBS) — Upper Darby Superintendent of Police Mike Chitwood was as blunt as ever about a cache of weapons taking up space inside the police department.

    “Certainly gives me great pleasure to burn them and destroy them, so they’re not used anywhere else,” Chitwood said.

    Police: Man Posing As Verizon Worker Sexually Assaults Woman Inside Home

    Officers have confiscated 43 long guns and 82 handguns, over the course of a few years, connected to felony crimes in the township.

    The guns now have a date with a blast furnace at the Covanta plant in Chester, where the steam generates electricity.

    Police showed off a 9-millimeter gun that was used by Daquan Brooks on February 1, when he allegedly robbed and tried to sexually assault a female worker at a Garrett Road laundromat.

    He ended up getting shot when the victim turned the table.

    “She not only expected to get done in with the gun, she expected to get sexually assaulted that’s why she fought back,” Chitwood said. “And she won, fortunately she won, and the bad guy got shot.”

    Investigators say two high-powered weapons were recovered in 2014, during a drug bust in the 2200 block of Windsor Avenue.

    Ironically, there’s a gun show sign right down from the police station.

    These guns could have made for a quick buck for the department but police tell Eyewitness News after a story like this airs, they’ll get calls from people trying to claim their guns.

    Only, it will be too late for that.

    Wouldnt it benefit the local tax payers more if the Police department sold off the firearms to local law abiding gun owners and used the profit for equipment?
    Im not impressed.

    Not as much as it will benefit the local politicians at the polls next week.

    For the past few days Ive been working with a retired UD cop. Long story short:
    UD police are corrupt to the core, including chitwood. You'd better have eyes in the back of your head
    if you're not in the click. He said the department is divided in two, the good and the bad. The bad steal
    guns , drugs and money from citizens, and sell them.

    How are they going to generate electricity from melting them down?

    Pretty sure that's not how melting something down works.
    Rules are written in the stone,
    Break the rules and you get no bones,
    all you get is ridicule, laughter,
    and a trip to the house of pain.

    You lost me here, did I miss something? I saw this on the news too. With all the budgetary problems all of our gubment entities are having I just can't believe that they can't see the forest for the trees on this one either.
    I see stupid people, they're everywhere, they don't even know they're stupid

    The glory is in getting guns off the streets....not putting them into the hands of the law abiding.
