This is what I saw first in Facebook and went “Bulls**t!”:

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.

  1. Is the MEDIA or the COPS the source of this “nonlethal” nonsense?

    It isn’t “nonlethal”, and it isn’t “less than lethal”, you ignorant chumps.
    The term is “less lethal”, which means the weapons, in cases of preexisting conditions in the person you use the weapon on, misuse, or simple bad luck … can still cause death. If this particular “nonlethal” claim came from the cops, they don’t understand use of force laws OR tools, and should take a round from these “”nonlethal”” shotguns to the face at 1 yard (0.9144 meters) immediately as a demonstration.

    Anyone who’s actually informed & plans to use “less than lethal” weapons damn well has a backup weapon or person on standby with lethal force.

  2. Something something Bank of America shootout something West Hollywood something 44 minutes something had to borrow ARs from a local gun store something something.

  3. This won’t save a single life.

    All those police shootings that the #BLM crowd is outraged about, and which no doubt contributed to the decision to adopt these “less lethal” shotguns, happened with police sidearms. That’s right: pistols. NOT SHOTGUNS.

    But suggest that cops go out with “less lethal” bullets in their Glocks and see how far you get.

    1. I looked everywhere and I could not find that MBPD has issued ARs to its officers or allows officers to use personal rifles.
      For heavy stuff, they call Miami-Dade PD.
