Since 2004 over a dozen police officers in Los Angeles County have been accused of pulling out their guns or shooting them in public after they’ve been drinking. In fact, just this year 60 SoCal cops have been arrested on alcohol related charges. Almost every single one of them was carrying a gun at the time of the arrest.

Sheriff Lee Baca is proposing a policy that would prohibit LA cops from carrying a gun after they’ve been drinking. The police union opposes the policy.
