    What goes around comes around - Bloomber's finest charged with gunrunning
    8 Officers Charged With Gun Trafficking in U.S. Corruption Case

    By WILLIAM K. RASHBAUMEight current and former New York Police Department officers were arrested early Tuesday on federal charges including gun trafficking and conspiracy to smuggle cigarettes, according to people briefed on the case.
    The charges allege that the officers — five are still on the force and three are retired — were involved in illegally transporting more than a dozen handguns as well as M-16 assault rifles and shotguns and a variety of stolen property, the people briefed on the case said. The officers, along with a former New Jersey correction officer and three civilians, were arrested at their homes before sunrise by agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and investigators from the Police Department’s Internal Affairs Bureau, the people said.
    I wonder if Bloomber is having a stroke yet.

    Couldn't happen to a nicer guy.

    Let the irony begin.

    stay safe.

    Well, if he's convicted, Bloomber will have to change his moniker to Boomberg to fit with prison protocol.

    I no longer have any confidence in the moderation or administration of this forum. Nonetheless, the First STILL protects the Second, and the Second protects the First! Together, they protect the rest of our Bill of Rights and other founding documents. If you're going to do anything at all, do it right!
