Thought there was a range proficiency requirement


LA sheriff: Trainee mistook store clerk for robber


Associated Press

Posted: 10/04/2010 02:07:38 PM PDT

WEST HOLLYWOOD -- Authorities say a deputy trainee mistook a liquor store manager's finger for a gun and fired eight rounds at him after the manager pointed toward the fleeing robbers.

Los Angeles sheriff's Capt. Mike Parker told the Los Angeles Times that all the shots missed early Sunday.

Parker says the manager called 911 from the West Hollywood liquor store then ran outside as deputies arrived and started pointing. The shooting is being investigated by internal affairs and detectives.

Parker says good guys and bad guys are not always obvious when police arrive at a crime scene. As is customary, the deputy won't immediately go back on patrol.

Eight shots and no hits, thats pitiful.

I AM NOT SAYING THERE SHOULD BE CAPITAL PUNISHMENT FOR STUPIDITY,
BUT, WHY DON'T WE JUST TAKE THE SAFETY LABELS OFF OF EVERYTHING
AND LET THE PROBLEM SOLVE ITSELF?"

You're right. Even if the officer were 100% proficient at the range, there is an old axiom that says under combat conditions, proficiency suffers up to 50%. Therefore, the store keeper should have reasonably have been hit 4x......unless the trainee was just some idget firing willy-nilly.

(Personally, I'm a 100% kinda guy - been there, done that.)

I'm glad the 8 rounds failed to leave a mark. It'll cost the county enough with the trainee missing - imagine if he'd a hit 'im! emoticon

Of course there's probably plenty that the paper ain't printing.... emoticon

(Never tried it with the beer - that would be irresponsible plus an unnecessary risk of my proficiency record. emoticon)

Oh, I'm sure there is.They always have to make it sound worse than it really is.I feel sorry for the trainee.

Different but the same... I was talking to a buddy at work today and we got on the subject of fighting. He use to work at the local jail dealing with the inmates and he was saying that he would get into a fight 4 out of 6 nights.He had no mace or weapon of any kind just one set of cuffs.He said all he was allow to do was detain. I would have a hard time doing that job because when it comes to fighting and it gets to the punch point some body is going to be laying still on there own without aid of cuffs. Me or them but somebody is going to be still.There ain't going to be no detainment. emoticon

Where but LA could one shoot at the clerk and miss all 8 times,still have a job and if he had shot at the bad guys would have missed 8 times there as well.
Bad mistake shooting wrongfully, second one the clerk is most likly fond of he cant hit squat.he needs a riot gun with rubber bullets.
Everyone else needs a shield.
Bet the bad guys were laughing their a$$es off.
Switch him to border patrol that way hes shooting towards mexico.
