Description of incident: Just another couple of those "fine public servants" you have there. I guess they are just more of your "good ones". Nice!

"Two police officers have been indicted by a federal grand jury after they were caught illegally selling more than 100 firearms that the department deemed unsafe for the public, all while using their badges in an attempt to cover up their crimes.

The firearms sales took place between 2015 and 2017, and several of the buyers were convicted felons. Detective Carlos Miguel Fernandez, 42, and Officer Edward Yasushiro Arao, 47, were charged with a combined five felony counts that included “engaging in the business of dealing in firearms without a license and lying about it.”
