Arizona - -(Ammoland.com)-  I have to admit being taken aback by this  reward poster at the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation website.

I can see the utility in grabbing a graphic from  the Internet that is unlikely to draw a complaint from the owner.  It may even be in the public domain.  But I find the juxtaposition of Glock Perfection with a double child murder case to be a little disturbing.

The pistol may be useful in the trial of Kevin Sweat, who has given a confession of sorts.   A hearing has been scheduled to determine if the video of the confession will be allowed at the trial.  The trial also includes the murder of Sweat’s fiancée, Ashley Taylor.  Perhaps a reader will have knowledge of this pistol and will be able to assist in this case.

    1. First it a copyright infringement to use a companies logo without permission. So, the implication is Glock gave OK the permission.

      Second it was intended to be provocative. It implies this gun manufacture approves of the use its product was used for. And implies all gun owners strive to use their guns in such a manner.

      So, are they saying the gun committed the murders? That’s pretty stupid. People aren’t killed by guns, they’re killed with them. Along with fists, knives, automobiles, smoking…

    3. I do not think they are saying the gun committed the murders. I think they believe that the gun might be used as additional evidence in the case.

      My suspicion is that they just grabbed the image of the Glock 22 off of the net,and it contained the logo with it. It was just easier to put the whole thing on the reward poster rather than find or take a separate picture of a Glock.

      It just seems very weird to have a company logo on a wanted poster.

      I am a certified Glock Armorer. Although I am permitted to put the Glock logo on my business cards in association with advertising that that specialty, I cannot use it without the reference and I may NOT post it on my web site. This is a clear case of copyright infringement.

      Thank you.
