Re: “Controversial 'Bulletproof' Police Firearms Training Canceled by Santa Clara Sheriff

Not to beat a dead horse, but for those of you interested in looking at a deadly force video (less than 3 mins long) and seeing how good you are at determining whether or not it's a good shoot, here's a link to the one we just put together:

Re: “Controversial 'Bulletproof' Police Firearms Training Canceled by Santa Clara Sheriff

Well, it didn't take long before people like Hobart Johnson threw the race card and Miles Monroe demonstrated he is clueless about the war inside our borders. I know Miles Monroe is not a LEO and I hope to God Hobart Johnson isn't either.

One thing cops like about each other is telling it like it is. There is no sugar coating and no facade. So, let me take a stab at it:

Hobart Johnson, you are either ineptly unaware of the factual data surround OISs or are intentionally misrepresenting the facts. If bad guys didn't try to kill LEOs and obeyed law enforcement's commands, they wouldn't get shot! Did you know that The Washington Post compiled data shows that:
1. Cops killed nearly twice as many whites as blacks in 2015
2. More whites and Hispanics die from police homicides than blacks
3. Black and Hispanic officers are more likely to shoot blacks than white cops
4. Blacks are more likely to kill cops than be killed by cops

Also, when interpreting stats to say that cops are more likely to kill an unarmed black man than an unarmed white man, what is not being revealed is that they are giving the label of being "unarmed" to bad guys trying to get the officer's gun, beating the cop with his own equipment, etc..

Don't stop reading, it gets better...a new study by Harvard Professor Roland G. Fryer Jr. (a black man) found NO RACIAL BIAS in how law enforcement used lethal force against blacks. Sorry to take the wind out of your sail!

We actually talked about racism in law enforcement on Episode 64 of the LEO Round Table law enforcement talk show in case you want to check it out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yeX_yUq2DQ8

Miles Monroe, I still can't believe you have your head in the sand when it comes to war in the United States. So kindly get your notepad because SCHOOL IS IN SESSION. You can start by doing the following:

1. Drafting a letter to the families of the 49 people killed and to the 53 people injured in the June 12th Pulse nightclub mass shooting by domestic terrorist Omar Mateen. Oh, BTW, the shooter was killed by Orlando police.
2. Drafting a letter to the families of the 5 police officers killed, the 7 police officers injured and the 2 civilians injured on July 7th by Dallas sniper Micah Xavier Johnson. The sniper was killed by police.
3. Drafting a letter to the families of the 3 police officers killed and the 3 police officers wounded on July 17th by Baton Rouge gunman Gavin Long.

Of course I said "draft" because you would be crucified by the public if you were insensitive enough to actually send it. It's bad enough that there's a real war out there and law enforcement is having to fight it, but it's INFURIATING that you refuse to acknowledge the actual presence of this war and law enforcement's role in fighting it FOR YOU!

Re: “Controversial 'Bulletproof' Police Firearms Training Canceled by Santa Clara Sheriff

It's disappointing to read that people like Linda Arnold pressured the Santa Clara County Sheriff's Office into dropping a class that could save deputies' lives, all without having seen the Bulletproof class in the first place. Then there is someone like Rashida Grinage praising her for doing so. People, ignorance is nothing to be proud of.

Miles Monroe, you are correct in that law enforcement is a dangerous job and not for everyone. With people like Linda Arnold and Rashida Grinage, it likely just got a little more dangerous for them. As Law Enforcement Officers (LEOs) we know what we signed up for and what we're getting ourselves into. We don't complain about risking our lives in order to ensure the safety of yours. However, there is a war out there if you haven't noticed and LEOs need all the tools available to them to win the fight. It may not be pretty, but no one wants to fight a war they cannot win. And, if we don't win, you don't go safely home at night either...

I plan on bringing this article up this week on our LEO Round Table law enforcement talk show. I'll post a link when it's published.
