Let’s see, how could moonbat bureauweenies make the job of police officers even more difficult and deadly, guaranteeing that anyone sensible bails out of the profession at the first opportunity? Here’s an idea:
City cops are livid over a legislative proposal that could handcuff the brave officers involved in life-and-death confrontations every day — requiring them to shoot gun-wielding suspects in the arm or leg rather than shoot to kill, The Post has learned.
The “minimum force” bill, which surfaced in the Assembly last week, seeks to amend the state penal codes’ “justification” clause that allows an officer the right to kill a thug if he feels his life or someone else’s is in imminent danger.
The bill — drafted in the wake of Sean Bell’s controversial police shooting death — would force officers to use their weapons “with the intent to stop, rather than kill” a suspect. They would be mandated to “shoot a suspect in the arm or the leg.”
Under present NYPD training, cops are taught to shoot at the center of their target and fire their weapon until the threat has been stopped.
But in the Westerns, the good guy will just shoot the gun out of the bad guy’s hand without even producing a wound. How about a law mandating that?
Dead cops won’t be the only price if this insane pro-criminal law is passed. Every time a member of Comrade Obama’s base loses a gunfight with police, expect the multi-$zillion lawsuits to fly, as lawyers scuttle out of their crevices screeching that police failed to shoot for limbs. As always, the taxpayer will take it in the teeth.
