A police officer with more than year or so of training would NEVER give his sole weapon, unloaded or not, to another person, especially a known gang member. This is such a clear violation of department guidelines, as well basic personal safety standards that it's presence in the film is almost laughable. Jake had no reason to trust the gang members and no other means of protection had they drawn weapons on him. Giving away or even showing off his firearm was a decision so poor that it was an indication of his lack of ability to be a police officer, much less an undercover detective,
