Why Does The NY Homeland Security Chief Still Have A Job There?

Holy shit, I can believe this because these people think they are minor gods but dayum, what a stupid bastard! There are so many instances of fail in this article that it is hard to believe.

Report: New York homeland security chief used handgun as laser pointer during speech

Visiting foreign dignitaries were alarmed when New York’s director of homeland security pulled out a handgun and used its laser sighting device as a pointer during a presentation late last year.

The incident happened Oct. 24 but was only reported Monday by the Albany Times Union.

Public officials told the newspaper that Jerome Hauer used the improvised laser pointer during a presentation on the state’s response to Superstorm Sandy at the highly secure state emergency operations center beneath state police headquarters.

He even tracked the laser across a visiting Swedish emergency manager’s forehead before finding the New York map he wanted, the officials said.

The newspaper reported that Hauer was disabled several years ago by a stroke and can be unsteady at times.

The state commissioner of the Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Services also carries the loaded 9-millimeter Glock handgun in a holster into state buildings, witnesses told the paper, in apparent violation of the law prohibiting state employees from bringing weapons to work.

Hauer is not a law enforcement officer, although he is licensed to carry a gun in Albany and New York City, but his spokesman wasn’t sure if he was authorized to carry a firearm into state offices.

An aide for Gov. Andrew Cuomo said the matter would be investigated but declined further comment.

Hauer’s spokesman said he’d heard rumors about the incident and promised to look into it.

The paper reported that no one, including Hauer, had denied the incident.


  1. Nothing to see here, move along - this is simply a case of 'the rules don't apply to me 'cuz I'm important and you aren't' - now if he happened to be a disabled vet.......................nah that wouldn't happen either since he is of the 'correct' political affiliation.

  2. Good thing NY doesn't have strict gun laws . . . right?

    . . . or laws against stupidity.


Opinions are like assholes, everyone has one, some peoples stink more than others too. Remember, I can make your opinion disappear, you keep the stink.
