You can now show them that even trained cops can miss at point blank range.
many/most cops are terrible shots.
jeez. i cant tell, did he drop the taser when he drew his handgun?
looks like he places it on the trunk of the car, and grabs for it when the dude moves around like he's going to try to run again... then places it on the trunk again.
when he turned around with the gun in hand at what looks to be 0:44, he would have gotten lead
wow at that range,,,,,eek
Hopefully they sent him to some training after that.
For anybody that missed it the point is that at 43 second mark the cop misses or ND's into the ground. Really can't tell which. I'm inclined to think he missed but he was backpedalling at the same time. They don't give cops enough training on shooting while moving.
yea, is stuff like this really a suprise when ya see that most cops are fat and out of shape.. if they cant their body trained, i doubt their keeping their shooting skills trained.
The two are not completely related.
wonder if he had one in the chamber...
yea i know its kinda a stretch, but the way i see it is if they are willing to let themselves go in other areas important to their jobs, like their fitness level, then they are probably more likely to let themselves go in other areas, like shooting.
I didnt mean that being a fatty in general effecting shooting.. i meant it in the context of being a police officer
He does let a round off as the guy is rolling over after being tazed. You can clearly see the perp's gun after the cop lets the round off.
Other than slow firing a magazine or two into a target every once in a while (stationary target, stationary cop) to qualify, most cops are as bad at shooting as any member of the general public who doesn't care about guns.
I was shooting with some of my cop buddies and I asked the San Diego guys jokingly why they are such lard asses when these LA Sheriffs are all fit and athletic (had both SD and LA sheffifs in my squad that day. The answer surprized me. I was joking around and thought I would get a smart ass answer.
We it seems the SD Sheriffs has this program where they wanted to promote a better fitness level so to encourage officers to work out they said that any legitimate injury that happened while excercising could be used as injury leave. Before this was an excuse not to work out. Well it seems there were enough injuries during the program that they decided to can it. So since if they ijury themselves excercising they do not get injury leave they don't excercise.
Injury leave = unpaid?
Guessing it would be paid
injury leave is paid
Bleh, didn't read that they canned it. I see now.
