Me thinks the police officer in the video below, has protested too much about the weapon being secured properly.
If it had been would it have been taken from the car?
Also of note, why was the policeman involved not instructed not to leave his weapon in his car in a high theft area?
Wouldn’t that be standard operating procedure to put the rifle in it’s carrying case and take it to the hotel?
It likely will be now.

You are right Ms. Brea you can’t make this stuff up.
Well, maybe one can ! What if someone heard the officer involved had planned to take Obama out making himself infamous, like, John Wilkes Booth and JFK’s wrongly accused and murdered Lee Harvey Oswald?
Of course this is said in jest, the only way Obama must leave office is by legal means.
An FBI agent’s sniper rifle (similar to the one pictured) was ripped out of his car’s window and stolen from a Salt Lake City hotel parking lot
An FBI agent’s sniper rifle was ripped out of his car’s window and stolen from a Salt Lake City hotel parking lot just days before President Obama visited Utah earlier this month.
The gun was inside a hard rifle case and was ‘secured properly’ to a truck safe with padlocks and chains while the car was parked at the Marriott Springhill Suites, according to police.
Police believe the thief stole the rifle by breaking the rear right passenger-side window, tying a rope around the rifle case’s handle or a cable lock, and using the momentum from another vehicle to then break the case’s handle free from the lock.
The window frame of the agent’s car was pulled from the door, which police believe could indicate the large case was ripped through the shattered window.
‘The rifle had been secured properly,’ Salt Lake City Police Detective Dennis McGowan told Fox 13 Salt Lake City.
‘There are all kinds of ways the weapon was secure. Yet someone was able to forcefully take the weapon.’
The FBI agent also reported that his gear bag, backpack, and some clothing and tools were also stolen during the March 27 theft, which the police report states happened overnight.
