    A guy in the news found a snubnose revolver while mowing grass in Detroit yesterday and gave-it to police and the Department of What-Ever fired him for-it and gave his foreman that knew about it a 30 day leave....Only in America...I think his union is fighting-it...He hit it with the lawnmore and was just happy it didn't go-off....:confused:....?????......Not sure what Link it would be on....

    Thanks for the thread. I hadn't seen the other one either.

    That's just incredible that poor bastard got the boot for turning in a gun he damn near ran over. I wonder what the official reason given for his termination was.

    *found* on the other thread " employees aren't allowed to possess a weapon on work property " WTH?!@? Unbelievable and he was just about to retire too.

    The crime that caused his firing was "Handling a dirty, weapon of mass destruction." He was so contaminated as to never be a useful employee again.

    Company policies usually require that you don't stumble upon firearms. In fact, even thinking about firearms can be a violation.
