    This is no firing offense. This guy needs a lawyer after he runs through the course of his union and then file charges against the department he’s working for.
    The EEOC would love this one, I think.

    The groundskeeper made a primary mistake in touching that gun in the first place. He should have called the Police to come and get it. he may have destroyed evidence that could have been used to put away a bad guy or otherwise solve a case in progress. For the rest of this story this is clearly an excuse employed by the County to fire him.
