After the death of George Floyd, Joe Biden began to talk about what he would do about policing as president, and he mentioned training as a big part of his plan. Ideally, cops would be trained to shoot criminals rushing at them in the leg and not the heart. It came up again during his town hall on ABC, and again he said police should shoot criminals in the leg.

WTF? Shooting someone in the leg IS NOT DE-ESCALATION. NO ONE TEACHES THIS. LITERALLY NO ONE. https://t.co/7Avmkmu88f

Seriously? Spoken like a man who’s never had a criminal running at him with a deadly weapon. https://t.co/BwZ9Huslju

Yep and hit the main artery and then they bleed out before paramedics can arrive

He's been watching too many cop shows on TV in his basement during pudding time.

Nor can it be done. It’s not even possible. Legs are not a big enough target to easily hit.

First thing in class I was taught, if you have to pull it, shoot to kill…never shoot to injure. He should take a class!

Great way to cause someone to bleed out, especially if they hit an artery.

So as President Biden will solve police shootings by signing the "Shoot The Legs" Bill. ?

Go for the ankle!

I suggest having Joe try that before he tries to tell the police how to do their job. Ask him if he has ever seen a demonstration or better yet tried the 25 foot rule himself.

He’s right. Police are lazy. They should be able to shoot the gun out of the criminals hand without causing a flesh wound. Sheriffs always did it in westerns.

Logic from someone who's never fired a gun.
