    This love triangle has four corners — and four police badges!

    An NYPD sergeant cheated on his cop girlfriend with a fellow officer, whose husband is also on the job — and the bosses took away everyone’s guns so they wouldn’t kill each other, sources told The Post on Monday.



    The NYPD report says a total of nine handguns were seized from all four cops under a section of the Patrol Guide that permits impounding firearms in “non-disciplinary cases,” including those involving “stress as a result of family or other situations.”

    A law-enforcement source said the circumstances raised “the potential for violent outcomes due to the sensitive nature of infidelity and everyone having access to guns.”

    Ain't that more of a love square?
    Put em all in a room with 1 gun and 3 bullets. See how it plays out.

    Now, I’m not saying that taking the guns was the right thing to do.

    What I am going to point out to those who claim that we can and should trust the police explicitly with our protection is that police are people. They’re not better; they’re not worse. They’re a representation of the society they come from, and in our case, that’s a good thing for the most part. But that also means that sometimes, they get wrapped up in other bad situations. They get stressed. They get worked up, just like everyone else.

    Yet we’re supposed to outsource our personal protection to them.
