According to an AGG report, William Stewart Boyd traded his father’s old .38 caliber Smith & Wesson snub nose for less than $100 in a gun buyback in 2004. It was supposed to be destroyed, but somehow the same handgun with serial number J515268 was found next to a dead body involved in a police shooting eight years later.
Boyd, a judge in Cook County, had taken the handgun to a South Side church in Chicago, Illinois where he handed it over to a pair of plainclothes officers with badges on their belts.
So many potential problems !!
The officer involved “ALLEGEDLY” had some other issues.
The fact that a gun that should have NEVER been back on the street ended up there and was last in the hands of police officers lends one to believe either the cops used that gun as a plant, or it was sold back to a gang banger.
