*The SFPD turned down some surplus M-16′s when offered by our armed forces. I guess converting them to AR-15′s would have been a hassle or SFGov was disorganized or something…

    That’s the full complement that’s kept in the squad cars, which can’t stay when the car goes out of service. There’s probably a “non-lethal” toy of some sort in the bag.

    The orange shotgun is the less lethal option. The bag is probably his paperwork and the dozen brochures SFPD officers are required to pass out at calls.
