Rounding up my police being trained with guns posts for the week:
An axe wielding man was shot several times by an off duty deputy when he broke into her home. He was treated for gun shot wounds to his extremities.
Now some might take this post as criticism of the police. That would be far from the truth. This post is evidence that the police do not train often enough or for long enough to be any better at marksmanship than the average citizen, nothing more. For some reason, people tend to think of cops as firearms experts, or even self defense legal experts. That is not the case. Police are experts in police procedure.
