Most of the time in these parts we hear horror stories of the results of 12 pound pistol triggers on officer-involved shootings, with cops spraying bullets because of a combination of adrenaline rush, sympathetic / contagious fire and forced mandatory equipment (those gawd-awful triggers) that hinders accuracy. It's not due to a lack of training, as most sworn officers train more than a recommended department minimum and pass their pistol qualifications with ease. It's due to physics---overcoming those gawd-awful "safe" triggers bureaucrats love. So what happens if you're one of the best shots in the department, practice regularly, enjoy shooting competitively on your days "off the job", and post about all the fun you're having SHOOTING FAST & accurately? That's right, you've become a TARGET that needs dealt with because over-zealous lawyers prostitute themselves to the families of the Bad Guy Meth-Head that attempted to KILL YOU!
From the L.A. Times:
"Hernandez’s (the Perp's) family has said they think Officer McBride could have done more to de-escalate the situation before firing her weapon and said that she behaved like the competitive shooter she was in the videos, the Los Angeles Times reported.
From one of the Perp's family attorneys looking for a payday:
“She loves to shoot all these things as fast as she can,” Arnoldo Casillas, one of the attorneys for the Hernandez (aka the Perp) family, said. “That certainly is in stark contrast to the measured, cautious police officer, exhibiting a reverence for life. This isn’t a movie.”
So what's it supposed to be, eh? Do we want our Cops trained to shoot accurately & only when they have to, using as few rounds as necessary and superior judgement to stop the threat OR do we want the mediocre status-quo? The public can't have it both ways. Thankfully LAPD is sticking to its guns and backing 2017 Academy Top Shot Toni McBride! Full story in the link.
Competitive Action Shooting is safe & fun and we know this from being involved in it for decades. We have police friends that thought they were good---until they started shooting action. They honed their skills with us and taught us what it's like to be "on the street". We wish every Cop shot Action
