Because people don’t have the same  firearms training as police…

…thank God.

In about 30 minutes, from approximately 75 feet away, deputies and troopers fired 55 rounds at Johnson’s car from AR-15 rifles, .40 caliber pistols, and a shotgun. Not a single round hit her.“I am surprised,” said Walcher.

Hell, I am amazed they managed to hit the car at all. There is video of the shooting in the link.
Oh, I almost forgot: one of the officers managed to shoot a police car.

  1. Different strokes, and all that. Cops are like regular shooters- some gots skills and train to use them, some do the bare minimum.

    Take any random number of guys at any range at any particular time, and have them shoot a similar IDPA stage with what they have right there and then. (If you did that, you’re a braver man than I, Gunga Din!).
    Chances are they wouldn’t do much better- as the fact that they shoot a 1 yard group at 3 yards will attest.
