These California police officers were charged with brutalizing loved ones.

So why are so many still carrying a gun?

He shoved her to the ground, kneed her in the back and handcuffed her so she couldn’t take their baby and leave, she told police. When she tried to get away, she said, he grabbed her hair and pushed her face into the door frame.

Police photographed her swollen right eye for evidence.

But his actions that summer night in 2007 — and the domestic abuse, false imprisonment and battery charges that followed — didn’t cost Vidal “Dustin” Contreras his job.

The Kern County Sheriff’s Deputy was allowed to plead no contest to a single, far less serious charge: disturbing another person “by loud and unreasonable noise.” Not only did Contreras keep his badge, he went on to be a human-trafficking detective with a troubling record of investigating cases involving vulnerable women.

That’s not so unusual, when it comes to domestic violence and law enforcement officers in California.

2. Think about it: the gov't spends a lot of it's financial resources to train a PO, only to have that

all that money go down the drain if/when that PO loses it's right to carry a gun if convicted of felony domestic abuse? This kind of financial law enforcement is not limited to California. Trust me, I know.
