Florida police shot images of black men in training.

'US police officers have been criticised for using mug shots of black suspects for target practice in Florida.
The images used by North Miami Beach Police were discovered by a female soldier who used the firing range after a police training session.'

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-30860057


'Sgt Valerie Deant recognised her brother as one of the target images, according to NBC Miami.......
.........The six targets left behind by police were found last month by Sgt Deant, a band member of the Florida Army National Guard.

"I was like, why is my brother being used for target practice?" she told NBC Miami on Friday.

The photo of her brother Woody Deant had been taken after his arrest as a teenager for drag racing. It had been shot several times.'

Mr Deant said he was "speechless" when he heard the news.

"Now I'm being used as a target? I'm not even living that life according to how they portrayed me as. I'm a father. I'm a husband. I'm a career man. I work nine to five."

Quote;

Not for long, me thinks. :devil:

    Goes well with using armed homeowner targets as well. It seems anyone without a badge is a legitimate target anywhere anytime and it will always be "justified".

    I remember the standard thug targets, all white guys, not a single minorority in the bunch, then they went to a simple silhouette, and the PC crowd had problems with those too, why not go back to the original thug targets ?

    They can use Me for a model, why would I freaking care if they shoot at targets of Me ?

    As long as they don't shoot me in real life and give me a 10 cent royalty from each target sold !
    LoL !

    Like CPJ said, horrible idea. Ain't nothin' good going to come of this mess.

    On a lighter note, they could use the Zombie silhouette targets. Nobody would be offended since Zombies don't exist....................yet. :tooth:

    Heck, on the weekend in my area it's full of zombies. Slack-jawed, drooling, shuffling creatures that bump into things, have minimal brain activity, and are driven solely by their hunger.

    Breamfisher, CPJ, both of you have made an incorrect identification of species. What you are observing is the Liberal Democrat voter in their natural habitat. Further proof of this is the dearth of Conservatives in the store at the time; they can't be Zombies because there are no brains present! :roll2:
