    StLPD auctioning “the deadliest weapon, pound for pound, ever devised by man.”

    St. Louis police took them out of service perhaps 60 years ago, but 29 are still stored in a basement bunker at the Police Academy downtown, with a 30th in the crime lab. Chief Sam Dotson and some collectors think it may be the biggest police-owned stock of Thompsons in the United States.

    And it is about to go on sale.

    How'd they decide to not melt them? Force the issue, particularly for being so deadly.

    That's what you get if you turn the other one over, a push-me-pull-you of UGLY.

    That is not ugly. That is what we here in the South call "ruint"; which is about four levels below "ugly". Meeting either one of those face-to-face on a dark night would cause you to need new britches.

    LOL!!! Been a while since I heard someone referred to as 'ruint'! I don't disagree!!


    When money talks, the BS walks! Hence, they would rather have the dough than the scrap! Typical governmental hypocrisy!
