It looks like this is going to be a thing under a Joe Biden administration. This summer, the Democratic candidate who as vice president urged every American to buy a shotgun, spoke on Black Lives Matter and suggested that police officers be trained to shoot in the leg an “unarmed person with a knife” who happened to be charging them.

Biden must have thought it was good advice — maybe it will be part of national training he rolls out for police departments — because again this month he suggested that police should deal with an armed attacker by shooting him in the leg.

Wolf Blitzer weighed in on the shooting in Philadelphia Monday night that led to rioting by asking why the cops didn’t “shoot to injure” the man approaching them with a knife and refusing to drop it despite several commands from officers.
