The darn orange shotguns have been available for police departments for years now. So I clicked on the link and it was worse.
Miami Beach Police are one of several law enforcement agencies in South Florida making the change to the non-lethal shotguns. “Sometime in November, this weapon will be made available on the street, and at the same time, we are going to take out lethal shotguns off the street,” said Oates. “We’re going to retire that weapon.”
they are substituting the real shotguns for less-lethal ones? Who was the effing genius that came up with that train of thought?
Less-Lethal does have a place in the police usage dealing with EDPs, but they kinda fall short against bad guys who are throwing real lead on their direction.
Let us not forget Border Patrol agent Brian Terry who was ordered to intercept illegals crossing the border with that type of weaponry/munitions and lost his life because the bad guys were using rifles.
This is gonna get people killed, both cops and bystanders. Or the cops will suddenly have car troubles when a dangerous call comes in.
