...and the headline is probably meant to lead us to think DHS is buying these, and that the targets are specifically meant to be "American Gun Owners," when they probably aren't, but this is still infuriating to me - this company is trying to sell stuff which would make an already militarized law enforcement community even less reluctant to pull the trigger:

 

 

 

 

 

DHS Supplier Provides Shooting Targets of American Gun Owners

  •      

Company produces cardboard cut-outs of “non-traditional threats”: Pregnant women, elderly & children

Paul Joseph Watson
Infowars.com
February 19, 2013

A provider of “realistic” shooting targets to the Department of Homeland Security and other federal agencies has created a line of “non-traditional threat” targets that include pregnant women, mothers in playgrounds and elderly American gun owners.

190213target1.jpg

Law Enforcement Targets, Inc. is a 21-year designer and full service provider of training targets for the DHS, the Justice Department and thousands of law enforcement agencies throughout the country.

The company’s website offers a line of “No More Hesitation” targets ”designed to give officers the experience of dealing with deadly force shooting scenarios with subjects that are not the norm during training.” The targets are, “meant to help the transition for officers who are faced with these highly unusual targets for the first time.”

The targets include “pregnant woman threat,” “older man with shotgun,” “older man in home with shotgun,” “older woman with gun,” “young school aged girl,” “young mother on playground,” and “little boy with real gun.”

Why are top training target suppliers for the government supplying the likes of the DHS with “non-traditional threat” targets of children, pregnant women, mothers in playgrounds, and elderly American gun owners unless there is a demand for such items?

This is particularly alarming given the fact that the Department of Homeland Security has purchased roughly 2 billion rounds of ammunition over the course of the last year, enough to wage a near 30 year war.

In comparison, during the height of active battle operations in Iraq, US soldiers used 5.5 million rounds of ammunition a month.

The DHS also purchased no less than 7,000 fully automatic assault rifles last September, labeling them “Personal Defense Weapons.”

The fact that targets of armed pregnant women, children, mothers in playgrounds, and American gun owners in general are being represented as “non traditional threats” “for the first time” is deeply concerning given the admittedpreparations for civil unrest undertaken by Homeland Security as well as other federal agencies.

A leaked US Army Military Police training manual for “Civil Disturbance Operations” also outlines how military assets are to be used domestically to quell riots, confiscate firearms and even kill Americans on U.S. soil during mass civil unrest.

This also doevetails with the contuning characterization of Americans who are “suspicious of centralized federal authority,” and “reverent of individual liberty” as “extreme right-wing” terrorists by DHS-funded studies.

See the other “non-traditional threats” that are being provided in the form of shooting targets to the DHS and thousands of law enforcement agencies below.

I'm assuming these are used for identifying and reflex training exercises. Cops might think twice when confronted with these types of individuals and that hesitation could get them killed. I think it's better to be somewhat "prepared" to take the needed shot should the situation arise.

So you would prefer a cop to gun down an innocent civilian than have an armed civilian gun down a cop who hesitates?

Not at all. These targets aren't "innocent civilians" they are armed and aiming at the officers. I'm assuming they have similar targets that are unarmed and both are mixed in to the training course so the officers have to decide quickly whether or not the pop-up "target" is friend or foe before firing.

Cops might want to think twice before signing up if they're not willing to think twice about shooting, well, anyone. My opinion. Yours may differ. That's cool...

I hear what you're saying but thinking twice can get you killed when you're a LEO and someone is pointing a gun at you.

Then I saw little Tiffany. I'm thinking, y'know, eight-year-old white girl, middle of the ghetto, bunch of monsters, this time of night with quantum physics books? She about to start some shit, Zed. She's about eight years old, those books are WAY too advanced for her. If you ask me, I'd say she's up to something.

Yeah, because confronting an immobile, inanimate, cardboard-backed picture totally prepares you for the real thing.
Grandpa looks particularly scary.

I don't think anyone believes this would totally prepare them for the real thing.

 

However, is there really any doubt that any additional training in various reaction type scenarios is be a good thing?
