Mug shots used as targets
 
Family Outraged After North Miami Beach Police Use Mug Shots as Shooting Targets | NBC 6 South Florida

Maybe they should use pictures out of the sears catalog. Take the damn targets down when you are done. The use of ethnic targets is necessary for shoot no shoot night drills.

Only criminals get mug shots? Kind of a slam dunk for the prosecution then.

Judge: How do you know he's guilty?
Prosecutor: Here's his mug shot.
Judge: Guilty.

Fortunately, nobody who has ever been arrested for a crime has been acquitted. That would just be messy.

As long as they were not practicing voodoo .

Frankly, if the mugshots were of a bunch of white dudes this would not even be a story.
The sad state of the media is that racism is always assumed. It's in the first sentence of the article and mentioned in the first line of the video.

A South Florida family is outraged at North Miami Beach Police after mug shots of African American men were used at a shooting range for police training.
Anything that generates outrage and increases internet hits.

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.

You're reading more into my comments than was inferred.

OK, if you want to discuss it further, I'll be here.
