His mind is no longer based on reality.
Let’s start with the obvious.
Last year, officers shot 256 bullets in 26 incidents with suspects. But cops’ missed their target in half of those incidents, according to NYPD data. When cops don’t hit their target, they are likely to fire more shots, police said.
Now, after field tests at the NYPD firing range at Rodman’s Neck in the Bronx, police believe that officers fire more accurately with a 9mm handgun that has a trigger pull — meaning the pressure required to fire a bullet — of five pounds.
For more than 100 years, the NYPD has used firearms with 12-pound trigger pulls.
The 457 recruits who were tested, most of whom never fired a weapon before, had an average score of 93.7 with the lesser pull and 88.7 with the 12-pound pull, police said.
Accuracy tests showed that 129 officers already working the streets also scored better with the lighter pull.

Institutional inertia is an amazingly stupid characteristic to have, but one that is firmly embedded. NYPD has known for a long time that a heavier trigger results in less accurate shooting, hell, anybody six months shooting any kind of pistols or revolver knows it, the companies know this which is they on average go for a 7-pound trigger pull.
This is from the NYPD’s Annual Firearms Discharge report of 2010.
But the fact that NYPD is finally figuring out and implementing a change that the average civilian shooter has known since JMB was sitting in his workshop is a sign of improvement.
Now back to Ladd. What is with this “white world” shit? Is he suddenly identifying himself as Black? Is he trying to pull a Dolezal or a Talcum X? Somehow, I don’t see him on the streets, marching with his left fist high up and shouting “BLACK POWER!” or “BLACK LIVES MATTER!” convincingly. Maybe he got by accident on the mail a Race card, and it is trying to use it before it gets cancelled.
As for the second part, I believe Bruen will be blamed for pretty much everything. From new COVID variants to climate change, Ladd will manage to insert somehow that the Bruen decision is to blame.

So in his mind NYPD is going to issue more accurate firearms so officers can shoot more black people a)to keep them from voting and b)since abortion restrictions will reduce the number of black babies killed?
You can’t make this shit up.
Well, they practice shooting at Rodman’s neck. Jump to your own conclusions.
Yawn…. Liberals twist everything to suit the crisis of the day… nyc in liberals mind is a utopia of epic quality while in reality is way beyond just circling the drain..
The Cody firearms museum, amongst its other wonderful exhibits, has a hands-on section demonstrating different trigger pulls. Ranging from a literal feather-touch trigger from an Age of Sail percussion cap pistol (I literally could not touch the trigger without it releasing) to a Glock with a New York trigger.
When I tried it the muzzle was bouncing all over the place. Some patrons could not do it with one hand and needed two. (Sounds crazy, but, I saw one woman put her left index finger over her right so she could apply enough force.)
“…’radical’ peaceful steps…” Is tha anyting like “mostly peaceful protests”?
