Jeez officer, just THROW your gun at the target!
Welcome back to another installment of our regular feature, “Stuff Maybe we Should have Explained in the Caption, but Didn’t.” We are told these officers are holding targets during a demonstration to demand “more resources to combat violence…”
Resources? What kind of resources?
Better training? It looks like not a single one of them seems to be able to hit a target. I say fire ‘em all and hire cops who can hit something!
Do they need bullets? Is this some kind of a Barney Fife force, where nobody is allowed to load their weapon?
WAIT! Maybe they’re pissed-off because their targets are made of a new space-age polymer, so their bullets just glance off and they can never qualify as marksmen?
Oh, I’m sorry. I’ve just been informed they are holding photos of their new uniforms, and they fear a trigger-happy citizenry. Fine, why didn’t we just say that in the first place?
