He bought the targets to use as “no shoot” targets. Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiight….
I’d like to believe this guy, but I think he’s full of shit. Is he seriously that dense that he couldn’t grab any other random no shoot target with a hobo or a kid with a toy gun on them? It’s not like these targets would have been that easy for him to get either.
When Matt sent me the link I immediately had to double check that I wasn’t on the Onion or watching an SNL skit. Three things struck me as odd… first off that Amanda Ober lady is a real character, and secondly what a sloppy way to show the target. I’m glad they showed my site and all, but really… they couldn’t have clicked through or at least cropped the google images part out? Last of all, I know you don’t need a PHD from an ivy league university to be a police officer, but I figured it was a no-brainier that a public servant shooting at a target depicting a dead teenager from one of the most controversial self defense shootings in a long time, would be a little more than simply frowned upon.
The Trayvon Martin Shooting Target post was really quiet lately, up until earlier today when some racist troll started up on it briefly. I figured it was a random occurrence at the time, but I guess not.
Note to self – Never live anywhere near, or spend any time in the hood:
I had the video on in the background over the last hour. Wow… just wow..
To summarize what you’ll see:
Total disrespect/hate for law enforcement. I’m sure some of them have valid reasons, but it really seems to be rampant across the board.
Terribly unsafe firearm handling. 4 rules? What 4 rules?
Witty rhymes put together to diss their enemies and the police.
Fighting, yelling, swearing you name it… these people are hostile.
I couldn’t imagine growing up in that kind of environment. You’d have to be so careful, and watch your back 24/7… concealed carry and sleeping next to a gun would be a requirement there. Even then you’d probably still not even have a fighting chance in the long run…
I wonder how many of those guys in the video are either dead or in jail? Threatening the police, doing illegal things, and flashing weapons (if you’re a felon) on camera rank up there with the all time stupidest things you could possibly do.
TAMPA, FL – A Tampa Police officer was caught on tape walking his horse through a crowded Ybor City bar, and the police chief said she approves of it.
The 37 second video was posted on YouTube and shows a mounted police officer walking his horse through Habibi’s Hookah Bar on 7th Avenue. A woman is heard screaming in surprise as the horse rounds a corner into her path.
Tampa Police Chief Jane Castor said, “It’s good public relations.” However, one business owner complained about the practice.
