If he can't carry because he is unfit he shouldn't be a cop at all for the people's safety.
In the appeal, filed a month ago, attorneys for the state police argue the decision should be overturned because the arbitrator ruled Keyes should not have access to firearms and the state police do not have any work sites where he wouldn't be able to get his hands on a firearm.
Sounds like a Judge needs to be helped into finding another line of work. His judgement or corruption issues have overwhelmed the point of public safety in my view.
If a man cannot have a gun as a private citizen? He has no business in any line of work where handling them has any part of it...from Cop to Security Guard. None of the above... Sheesh.
On July 10, 2009, the court entered an order restoring appellant’s rights to possess a firearm. However, the court did not expunge appellant’s involuntary commitment record, ostensibly because such relief was not requested. Because these commitments remained on appellant’s record, although he could again possess a firearm under Pennsylvania law, he was
still barred from possessing a firearm under the federal Gun Control Act
The provisions of this chapter, except
for sections 922(d)(9) and 922(g)(9)
and provisions relating to firearms
subject to the prohibitions of section
922(p), shall not apply with respect to
the transportation, shipment, receipt,
possession, or importation of any
firearm or ammunition imported for,
sold or shipped to, or issued for the
use of, the United States or any
department or agency thereof or any
State or any department, agency, or
political subdivision thereof.
His past commitment to a mental facility is quite moot to the State of Pennsylvania; they feel he has the capacity since then to fulfill his duties [and] carry off duty.

The federal code exempts people that work for government agencies... doesn't matter if they are insane, if they have been convicted of murder or other violent crimes.
So in this case, what I said stands, he can't carry as a civilian...anywhere, due to mental health issues as determined by federal law. He can carry in the performance of his duties as a policeman, again... because of federal law.
It is all federal laws involved.
The Pennsylvania State Police did not want him back as a cop.
A labor arbitrator ruled that they had to take him back.
The state judge can not overturn federal law.
He, in the eyes of federal law isn't to be trusted carrying a weapon.
They fought against him being allowed back on the force. Why is that?
Chenot (the DA) said Frey (Trooper) met Hoover (Killer) at the district court at the end of Frey’s final shift. Chenot said Frey “filed the citation without the approval, authorization, or knowledge of the Perry County District Attorney, the Perry County Coroner, his state police supervisors, or apparently his fellow state police officers.” Now, the citation written by Frey and Hoover’s immediate guilty plea will “most likely preclude any further criminal prosecution of Hoover under double jeopardy laws of Pennsylvania,”
I at a loss of words on this one. The insanity and stupidity in this ruling leaves me speechless.
