“So its appropriate for police officers to let waitresses handle their automatic weapons? Seems irresponsible to me.”
If they are unloaded and just done for a pose, whats the big deal? I’ve seen similar poses of guys in Iraq who got visits from some nice-looking women who went to ‘lift spirits’ in Iraq. Any guy in uniform would love to tell a woman “Wanna handle my weapon?”
“Heck they should all be fired for wasting taxpayer money. They went to New Orleans to work, not flirt with the bimbos at hooters.”
So they work 24/7 with no break, or do they get some ‘guy time’ off like most humans do? If there was junket expense involved, maybe an issue for city of hoboken, but otherwise not. Unless the SWAT team contract forbids them to enjoy flirtations with waitresses and/or they doing this on duty time, this is just city hall posturing and preening.

Because they were in a fricken restaurant and not in Iraq. If you or I did this they would call these guys to respond where we would be lucky not to be shot.

They were in uniform and representing law enforcement. When I was in the military we were expected to have a higher standard of behavior when in uniform.
