Graphic but just one out of thousands of examples why we are NEVER trained to “just shoot them in the leg”
Movies and TV have conditioned people to believe one shot will blow people away. Almost never the case unless it’s to the noggin and in high stress situations that is next to impossible.
We have been trained and will always be trained to aim center mass until the threat to your life or the lives of others is gone….period.[fvplayer id=”4″]
Couldnt they just call a social worker? Throwing the social worker between himself and his partner or using the poor soul as a human shield. Train them as matadors no guns just red tablecloths. Guns simply dont work He Has Sustained Multiple Gun Shot Wounds Michael Myers has been shot a countless amount of times in the Halloween franchise. He was first shot six times in the original movie by Doctor Loomis, but even after falling from a balcony, he still somehow survives. They never tried a social worker.
The problem with sending in social workers is that the idea is sexist.
You just know that the only social workers that will be tasked to respond will be the biggest, most muscular men.
And the poor police officers will be distracted by the need to protect a third party who shouldn’t be involved in the first place.
No. Not a social worker.
A crisis counselor is needed. A person who will be able to work with the parties involved, identify the particular crisis, and deal with the resulting psychic pain. A diplomat, in other words. Someone who will help the two parties get along.
Anything can be resolved with the right sort of counseling.
Do not we hear this daily?
German police are trained differently and consequently kill far fewer humans as are police in the UK most of whom are unarmed
Curt aren’t most police who are shot killed with their own gun by suicide ?
Can’t police simply apologize to the criminal for being part of the system that drove them to crime and beg forgiveness, asking them to be nice?
@John: So, in the situation above, how would German or UK police handle the situation? How do they handle the numerous cases of people attacking victims with manchettes? The morticians have arrived before someone that can stop the assailant.
Sorry, but just saying something doesn’t make it true.
even with a center mass shot with a low powered 9 mm the criminal will still live 90+ seconds. police and federal agents do not carry high performance ammunition for fear of secondary hit-bullet passing through the body into another.
underwood ammo. buffalo bore, crossfire make excellent defense ammunition. only a few calibers will stop a criminal dead- 45 ACP, Sig .357, .357 mag and a super 40.
But a unprotected, liberal social worker will replace all of these. have a few hundred under the age of 30 killed on the job and see what the grieving parents and families will do.
The time tested double tap- two to the chest, center, mass and one to the head has always worked for me.
No. From 2009 to 2018 510 officers were killed. 22 from their own weapon being stolen.
As far as suicide. Yes, our profession has more suicides then most.
What does these two facts have to do with the topic of the post?
Are you suggesting that the German police are trained to shoot someone attempting to kill them or someone else in the leg? Please provide evidence.
Doesn’t matter the caliber, if the round doesn’t hit the heart or the brain it will not instantly kill them. The adrenaline, or drugs, will keep them going.
In my 29 years I’ve seen many people shot, by many different calipers, some more then a dozen times and they survived.
It was a running joke that POS gangsters can get shot a dozen times but a LEO gets shot in the pinky toe and dies.
Yeah, we do get a sick sense of humor over the years.
@Curt: maybe if police did not have easy access to guns 24/7 fewer would die com being shot with their own guns
Curt you failed to actually say if what I said was true
Does the total of shooting deaths of police who die from their own guns exceede those that are shot and killed with guns Not their own ?
44 police were shot and killed in 2019 by other people
5 times that number killed tgemselves
Police are more in danger from themselves than from criminals
Would less police die if they had less time and access to firearms??@MOS#8541:
510 to 22…do the friggin math.
So should miners and construction workers not have access to guns as well?
Its the guns fault argument right?
Typical liberal bullshit
@Nathan Blue: first look for yourself if you dispute this after I will be happy to reply
But try yourself first
@Deplorable Me: you seem to think that all criminals deserve to be shot and killed by police
If a criminal is attempting to kill you or someone else then what should happen to him other then being shot? Given some cotton candy perhaps?
@John: You seem to believe that is an answer to a question. It isn’t and don’t try to claim later that you “answered in #12”. What is it with you liberals that you can NEVER answer a question, no matter how simple and straightforward, yet you always demand an answer to yours (see #10)?
If a criminal is running towards a person with a weapon, aside from defending themselves or running away, how is the “highly trained” German officer going to stop the assailant?
And, where did I say or imply ” all criminals deserve to be shot and killed by police”? Explain that. As in, provide an answer.
We understand you do not favor the second amendment and are welcome to move anywhere the citizens dont have that right.
You seem to think our peace officers dont have the right to defend themselves or the public against violent criminals.
Add to your statistics of officers killed with those shot but survive.
From 2014 to 2019 according to a study done by Nix and Sierra-Arévalo officers were shot in 1,185 incidents, 249 of which were fatal The study excluded federal officers and corrections officers.
A perp shot in the leg can still return fire, Biden is a moron beyond an epic level.
I understand you also do not like the fact that abortion is available here in the USA
You also are free to move elsewhere
Most Muslim countries do not allow that
Of course it IS legal in Israel as hydro belief is that a fetus is not a human with a soul
In fact only worth 2 shekels!!
Well what if a suspected criminal is running away
Shoot to kill?
American police lull themselves with their own guns much more often than criminals kill police officers
Are you 10 years old? Your mentality suggests so.
If the suspect is no longer a threat to myself or others then no, you don’t shoot to nullify the threat since the immediate threat is no longer there. Now, if the suspect had just shot someone and a reasonable person would believe that this person will continue to shoot people then yes deadly force is justified.
If a mass shooter is running away from you shooting people then you bet your ass you shoot them in the back until the threat is neutralized.
What a childish argument you make.
Im assuming you meant kill instead of lull… Proofreading can be your friend, something taught to us in elementary school.
Anyways, please cite the evidence that cops kill themselves with their own gun then get killed by suspects.
I provided links so are you just too lazy?
Kids, this is why just shooting someone in the legs is an incredibly stupid idea. I know that John in his rather simple view wont get it, but there are some bad people out there.
@John: No. Prove your statement yourself. Otherwise, it’s dismissed.
Yes, in the moment the life of volunteer law-enforcement officer, trying to enforce the law, is more valuable than one breaking the law and trying to kill the officer to get away with it.
They myth of “Europe has less crime” is hilarious. When cops can enforce, they just pull out and their borders effectively shrink.
@John: French Teacher Beheaded
Any comments? Or are the Germans just so much better? (well, the d*ckless beta-males left to breed after WWII, that is).
So many idiots complain when an officer unloads his magazine at a dangerous criminal. I guess they think in a split-second moment of life or death, the officer has the opportunity to bring the violent criminal closer to see where his shot landed, like at a range. No, folks, it is the officer or the criminal in a split second. The officer is doing a job and the criminal has brought this tragedy upon himself by his choices and his actions. But, liberals are not known for their ability to view situations with an open mind.
@John: Well? Ever going to answer?
@Deplorable Me: Look, I’m all for non-lethal means. Tasers don’t work as well as I’d like…at all, really, with the most dangerous criminals.
Halt! Or I shall say “Halt!” more forcefully!!
@John: Hello? Are you OK? Do you need us to call 911? Where are my answers?
@kitt: Trump says that the SEALs did not kill Bin Laden
They captured him by shooting him in the leg
His death was”fake news”
@John: Did he say that? OMG you must have a link, I have watched many rallies, news conferences and white house meetings by streaming and never saw that. Do post this new revelation where it comes right from his mouth and not just some weird conspiracy of a biased town hall broad that wont accept Trumps 1000th denouncement of KKK and neo-nazi types.
She had horrible taste in shoes not matching her pink suit at all looks like she got advice from the Vogue bag lady Abby Aguirre.
I made up the part about shooting bin laden in the leg
But yes Trump did day that the SEALs did not kill Bin Laden it was all over the web
Check Drudge or The Babylon Bee
SEALs are pissed about being called liars this can’t help Trump with the military vote
Kitt how do you feel about him calling the killing “fake news”
Link to video or audio of him saying this please.
Link to video or audio of him saying this please.
@John: You havent provided the link so I think its a figment of your delusional conspiracy laden psyche.
I bet they are more pissed about Bides big mouth outing the team.
On May 3, Biden applauded the SEALs’ work in a speech at the 2011 Atlantic Council Awards Dinner.
It didnt take much journalism to find out the admiral was commander of team 6.
Not long after Seals were warning their families of possible reprisals.
Petty Officer 1st Class Aaron Vaughn was one of the SEAL Team 6 operators who died in the crash. His father Billy Vaughn recounted Thursday a phone call from his son following the White House decision to credit the highly secretive military unit for the bin Laden raid.
“He said, ‘Mom, there’s chatter. My life is in danger. Your life is in danger. Get everything off your social media. Our families are in danger,’ ” Vaughn recalled.
Funny name for an operation were seals get killed Extortion 17 just weird.
But in the words of a Harpy ‘What difference does it make’? … Now, honestly
@kitt: so ? You agree with Trump that Bin Laden was not killed ?
That the killing was fake news from Obama ?
Link to video or audio of him saying this please.
@John: Of course, you won’t answer my questions. However, based on what I’ve seen in the past, I suggest you either provide Curt the link you refer to or admit you have no such link and are just repeating the lies you hear. Otherwise, you may find yourself blocked.
@John: I guess like the democrat inquisition of Amy I have to repeat again maybe again and some more.
You havent provided the link so I think its a figment of your delusional conspiracy laden psyche.
@kitt: Liberals believe their fantasies are true. Sometimes, that belief gets them in trouble.
@Deplorable Me: Right now he is googling Abby Aguirre he will find her his fantasy girl and she will end up with a stalker.
Liberal 14 year olds are into that gothic clown look.
@John: I have some more fake news for you:
Biden puts a lid on his campaign until after the debate.
Oh wait, that’s true.
BIDEN FOR RESIDENT!!!!
@Nathan Blue: His handlers that sweat bullets every time he opens his mouth put a lid on him.
@Deplorable Me: Look, a fair and free election is all anyone deserves. The Dems got so good at propaganda and straight up disinformation, they projected whenever Trump/Reps start to dig up dirt on them.
Now they are so twisted they don’t even understand how far past what is morally and ethically sound they’ve gone.
Steele Dossier, even with the proof is was paid for by Hillary and the Fisa warrants weren’t obtained in the right manner (with any real reason, really) is completely true.
Hunter’s laptop is “made up”.
Well, the Democrats kicked that to the curb, didn’t they?
Yeah, liberals are more than happy to believe any lie that reinforces their hatred for this country and can’t run from the truth fast enough.
