Was it poor judgment to use only pictures of black men? Yeah, I think they should have mixed it up. It was also bad judgment to leave the targets up.

Now I have to ask myself if I'd get all bent outta shape if I walked into a range and found a picture of myself or loved one riddled with bullet holes. I think I may have a question or two about their intent but really no harm was done.

Yeah, that was the comment I'm referring to. It's out of line. Whether you used the word guilty or not, your implication was obvious, and still is.

The point made in the article that these police officers may be seeing those pictured on their targets when they're armed on duty should be enough to give a person second thoughts about the idea.
