This will make you weep

Back in 1981 the DOJ did all Department change from revolver to semi-automatic. These were cut up. If you look close you can see a Colt Officer's Model Match .38 that was my Instructor gun, Talk about a tack driver! In the distance, Taps was played....

Sad & stupid. They do the same crap now with ammo cans - instead of making money on them by selling them as surplus, they pay someone to destroy them.

Because wanting to kill somebody over the scrapping of an inanimate object isn't the reflexive response of sane people.

No, they shouldn't have destroyed them. They should have sold or auctioned or re-purposed (reassigned) them. But they didn't. Do you go into a "killing rage" when you see govt waste in other areas?

Sure I was P.O.'d, but who I was going to be in a "killing rage" at? I was the Officer assigned to oversee the destruction.
