Skip to comments.Is Your Local Police Department Using Pictures of Pregnant Women and Children for Target Practice?
Posted on 02/21/2013 5:24:15 PM PST by Politicalmom
What if I told you police in your town could desensitize themselves to the idea of shooting a (armed) child, pregnant woman, or young mother, for just a couple of bucks? The "No More Hesitation" series from Law Enforcement Targets Inc. offers exactly that. For less than 99 cents per target, police can shoot at real-life images "designed to give officers the experience of dealing with deadly force shooting scenarios with subjects that are not the norm during training."
Update: The marketing team at Law Enforcement Targets, Inc. sends along this helpful explanation for the "No More Hesitation" series:
"The subjects in NMH targets were chosen in order to give officers the experience of dealing with deadly force shooting scenarios with subjects that are not the norm during training. I found while speaking with officers and trainers in the law enforcement community that there is a hesitation on the part of cops when deadly force is required on subjects with atypical age, frailty or condition (one officer explaining that he enlarged photos of his own kids to use as targets so that he would not be caught off guard with such a drastically new experience while on duty). This hesitation time may be only seconds but that is not acceptable when officers are losing their lives in these same situations. The goal of NMH is to break that stereotype on the range, regardless of how slim the chances are of encountering a real life scenario that involves a child, pregnant woman, etc. If that initial hesitation time can be cut down due to range experience, the officer and community are better served."

Yes, those images do appear to be of Jewish people.
There doesn’t seem to be any of Eric Holder’s people in the lineup.
Or cops or any sort, like undercover. No other-than-whites, no nothings.
These pictures are going to have cops seeing guns in the hands of people who almost certainly don’t have guns.
They already see guns that aren’t there in the hands of men - oops, so sorry, or oops, where’s the drop gun.
Now they will see guns that aren’t there in the hands of little children and old women and mothers with babies.
Well, the cops in CA saw Christopher Dorner in that pickup truck with the two women in it that were shot up.
Indeed. A girl holding a hair dryer?
A boy holding a nerf gun?
A pregnant mother keeping an elder child behind her?
Gun behind her back! Fire!
Everything is going according to plan. Obama needs his national civilian security force to be able to act against all threats!
Re #27; Yup; I noticed it.
It might be a flower, but it sure looks like a yellow Mogen David to me. It might be a coincidence... but I don’t think so, really.
All of the young women, including the pregnant Mother, look potentially “Jewish” too. I didn’t see any of them wearing a burqua or hijab, did you?
I guess there are some enclaves where the DHS is not expected to be operating, eh?
Can anyone read the lettering on the old guy’s cap? Somehow I don’t think it says Allawi Achbar or anything like that.
I wonder if the number on the protective Mother’s blouse has any significance?
There is something deeply sinister about these “targets”.
It may even be demonic.
Original page for No More Hesitation targets at Law Enforcement Targets website (found it with the Bing search engine, saved it, but I don’t know how to do a screen shot for this thread) ...
Can anybody do a screen shot of the link above and post it on this thread?
Thanks for capturing that... I see that the company has now removed the page.
“This Page No Longer Exists”
So they say.
Does anyone have a graphic of a pump spray bottle of US Government “SCRUB-A-PAGE(r)” to share with us?
Looks like the cleaning crew were a little late with it this time. Let’s just hope they don’t use a bucket of “Scrub-a-Site” on FR any time soon.
By now I expect that some FReeper has all this evidence on a thumb drive, encased in lead, and locked in a bunker hidden deep under a pile of junk cars in a remote area some place.
How many of us have our names engraved on to one of those .40 S&W JHPs, do you suppose?
Stuff like this gets saved and archived so fast and frequent that it would pointless for them to even bother.
Many millions of people have computers and 99% of them know how to right click and save.
Bottom line is don’t manufacture, advertise and sell anything you’re gonna be embarrassed by later.
If some entrepreneur really wanted to send the libs into hysterical convulsions, they’d market targets with cat heads on them.
Has hesitation been a big problem?
Seems like I read a lead where LAPD might have had some input on this project. Anyone else see that?
If they had a “Newspaper Delivery Lady” target, back to, then I might suspect some connection.
I wonder who got the no bid contract for the gallons of steroids to pump the jackboots up on before they get loosed on the dissident, non compliant bitter-clinging Krackkaz?
Just a hunch, but I suspect that Dorner, as muscular as he was, was pretty well juiced, which may have contributed to his homicidal rage.
How many LEOs are currently pumped up on performance enhancing steroids I wonder? What does that stuff typically do for a man’s attitude?
Note to mom... Hide the kids, get a restraining order, be armed yourself for when the day comes....
No, they’d love that. Did you ever hear about the “female” cop who stomped a kitten to death while serving a warrant? I read the story on FR several years ago, but never found it again. That one was hushed up pretty well.
