(CNN) -- A federal law enforcement officer mistakenly left a loaded gun magazine that was found Tuesday on a Southwest Airlines plane, officials said.
"The passengers who were remaining on that flight were rescreened and the plane was thoroughly inspected before returning to service."

Exactly what I was thinking. I think it's kind of ridiculous to bash on the officer for forgetting the mag. Now if it were a gun+loaded mag, that's a whole other story. We are humans, I mean look at the world we live in...edit on 23-11-2010 by -midnite- because: (no reason given)

The fact that it was a federal agent should require we hold them to higher standards.

Cops are humans too and prone to mistakes like the rest of us. What bothers me is when they knowingly and willingly choose to do evil. Even if it would've been a fully loaded gun the same still applies. Human imperfection.

The faith I have in cops to properly control their firearms is just slightly lower than the faith I have in crackheads to perform the same task.

They're idiots. They routinely turn away would-be cops for being "too smart." These people running red lights with weapons all around them and licenses to kill are raging morons pushing IQ's of 70. It's this way by design.
