    Again? In 30+ years of using public restrooms while on duty, i NEVER left a gun in the bathroom. Just how does one not know their holster is empty when they go to leave? And I know “most” if not all “security officers” in PA schools are retired state police. (That’s another story-for another time.) So they are qualified-i think.
    This is a gross embarrassment for any of us that ever wore the badge.
