The New York City Police for preventing a dangerous criminal
from fleeing has apparently legitimately shot up some of the
surrounding citizenry. These kinds of problems can be addressed
very often in the month of October in 2015. At that incident, one
female bystander was wounded badly by one of the bullets that
were shot by the cops.
A careful study of reality which is also hardly exhaustive reveals
that there is wrong in the common knowledge where different
firearms are involved. The police of USA are not properly trained
professionals regarding firearms. People belong to this
misconception which can be understandable. USA dwellers
some movies in which the heroes end up shooting all the bad
guys and usually by dropping them with just a single, perfectly
placed bullet or shot, or even shooting the bad guy to a wound,
virtually in every episode and in most of the cases virtually the
bullet always immediately drops and the same bullet
incapacitates the bad guy.
The truth is that most of the police officers are not competent
shooters which are really overwhelming as well as frightening.
They practice shooting very rarely in their own and only a small
portion of the cops spend their own money and time in tactical
schools for firearms training. There are many police officers
those who have only one single handgun which is their issued
duty firearm. Some of the cops own a handgun while others won
a shotgun or some kind of 0.22LR rifle with them. It is a very
serious problem in USA.
There are many Law Enforcement Organizations (LEOs) those
are inherently anti-gun. These organizations don’t able to trust
their officers. They fear about the accidental discharges by the
cops much more than about the consequences of accidently
shooting the innocent citizens. These organizations focus on
some other matters like they try to prevent accidental discharges
that happen through mechanical means rather than spending
their money and time which is necessary to increase the
accurate and effective shootings.Some of the LEOs provide some
professional firearms and also give competent training but most
of these organizations don’t give such firearms and training. The
full-agency qualifications are really very expensive. It is
problematic not only in ammunition but also in manpower. It
takes too many days to take qualifications because the police
officers need to be taken off the street and that requires the cop’s
usually means a lot of overtime costs.
At some point, most of the officers are introduced to their duty
handguns or shotguns during either their basic state academy or
during their basic agency academy. There are many states those
require a common basic academy of firearms trainingfor all certified
officers and most of these agencies virtually require their field-
training program and own in-house academy. The public of USA
does not realize that in most places the officers will not be
patrolling solo from their date of hiring for nearly a year.
There are few things like basic knowledge about the handgun
safety, marksmanship and the rudimentary maintenance which
are required for a basic training experience. The cops need to be
exposed to both shoot and do not shoot sort of training. It is
unusual if one shoot more than 200 rounds in a basic training.
These are some light-loaded practice session that recruits only
fire having characteristics that are a lot different from the
regular duty ammo.
The qualifications of the cops are generally composed of only
shooting standard and stationary silhouette targets which are
having suitable ranges and are never-changing and known. The
outer limit is usually twenty five yards. The passing score is
quite generous which is very low as 70% that is one need to hit
only 35 targets out of 50 rounds and this qualified firing is done
in not more than 50 rounds. Most of the caps are allowed to
reshoot as many times as required for qualify. Some of the
training agencies are set up with more skillful and advanced
tactical training. These trainings are having a variety of
scenarios and target those the officers can encounter but always
this does not happen because such trainings require different
There are some training agencies that require gun cleaning after
using it during qualification and those agencies also provide the
means of gun cleaning. This process is good as there are many
police officers those who do not have idea about how to clean
their guns properly after use and they also do not have their own
gun cleaning equipment. Shotgun qualifications occur in more or
less once in a single year. This consists of shooting a few slugs, a
few skeet and a few rounds of buckshot. They do not have any
rifles. There are some other trainings that are occurred
infrequently which includes some low light shooting and some
multiple target shooting, and an experience of shoot or do not
shoot along with a laser system and a video every five or six
years which records different hits or misses of the target.
The firing training should be such that lessons for both the
police and the public alike should follow:
•Shooting with a handgun accurately from any distance should
have a correct training, regular and practice.
•Most of the police officers should have hitting probabilities are
mediocre at his or her best even at a very near place of inside a
•The office hit probability increases with a correct and
professional training which cannot be replaced by mere
• trainingThe more the distance of a place, the less will be the police
hitting probability. The less the ambient lighting, the less will be
the hitting probability.
•In most of the cases, the police officers have much more chances
to miss the target than to hit it.
•It is the Hollywood nonsense that the idea of police officers has
the capabilities to shoot the criminals by hitting at the wound
but actually at any ridiculously close ranges, the cops are barely
able to hit the target.
The truth is that the cops do not have any legal duty to protect
the citizen. They only protect the society from any kind of crime
in their presence and to investigate it after the crime takes
place. Most of the police officers cannot able to protect the
citizens or common people reliably by using their firearms and
other weapons even if they want to perform their duties
sincerely. Therefore some serious firearms training are very
necessary for the USA cops for performing their duties properly.
