Maryland Cop Resells Weapons

Jan 21, 2013

A detective in Prince George’s County, Maryland outside Washington, D.C. was convicted of reselling guns seized from criminals–29 machine guns, shotguns, and handguns.

Corporal Juan Carter was assigned to a task force created to take firearms from repeat gun offenders and gun traffickers. So how could he go 13 months without turning in a gun or a report? At the very least, others in the system were complicit with his actions.

Carter was apprehended after a fellow P.G. police officer was shot by a car-jacker using one of the resold guns. An investigation resulted in a guilty verdict for this one dirty cop–three years later!

Gun control? The situation is already so out of control!
