The gun owner had reported the gun as stolen, exactly what he should've done. Nobody ever said the weapon was ever "unsecured" and nobody has the right to steal other peoples property! So instead of asking a stupid question like, "Why does this Deputy still have a job?", attempt to be somewhat productive by asking, "What will the judges and DA's do to this criminal for stealing this officers weapon from his home?"
In case you weren't perceptive enough to notice, the thief already has a criminal record and will have a bigger one now provided the judges do their job. It is people like Reaves here that are the basis for gun-related violence, but they continue to walk freely among us.
