Law Enforcement "Requested" Shooting Targets of Pregnant Women

DHS supplier responds to outrage over “no hesitation” targets which include children
Paul Joseph Watson



Law Enforcement Targets, Inc., a provider of shooting targets to the Department of Homeland Security, has admitted that targets depicting pregnant women were “requested” by law enforcement agencies.

As you can hear in the YouTube clip above, Blaine Cooper enquired about the company’s “no hesitation” targets, which also feature children, elderly gun owners and mothers in playgrounds, and was told that the target showing a pregnant woman was a “requested law enforcement target for training.”

The representative refused to answer why police would be interested in training to shoot pregnant women, but went on to explain, “unfortunately our world is made up of people, pregnant or otherwise, that are gun owners not for the right reasons,” adding that the targets were to “train police officers”.

The woman refused to give her name, accusing Cooper of being “angry.” “Could you understand why I’m upset if the government is trying to make targets to kill citizens – I don’t feel that’s right,” he responded.

Cooper also makes reference to the DHS’ purchase of 2 billion bullets, “enough rounds to kill every citizen of the United States five times over.”

The representative also claims that the targets could be used for “don’t shoot” training, which is somewhat dubious given that they are called “no hesitation” targets and every single one of them is described as a “threat” target in the product description.

The shooting targets, intended to “help the transition for officers who are faced with these highly unusual targets for the first time,” include “pregnant woman threat,” “older man with shotgun,” “older man in home with shotgun,” “older woman with gun,” “young school aged girl,” “young mother on playground,” and “little boy with real gun.”

Our story yesterday about the targets caused outrage, crashing Law Enforcement Targets, Inc.’s website and leading the company to release a statement on Facebook inviting comment and criticism about the products.

LET Inc brags on its website that it is a full service provider of training targets for the DHS, the Justice Department and thousands of law enforcement agencies throughout the country. The company has has racked up $5.5 million worth of contracts with the federal government, with almost $2 million dollars coming from Homeland Security.

Another customer who called the company claims he was told that the targets were, “strictly for Department of Homeland Security and other law enforcement agencies.”

Asked by Mike Riggs at Reason about the targets, the company responded, “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.”

The targets are still available for sale on the company’s website via this link (screenshot here).

206223 LOL! Man in HIS home and who is classified the threat? We are a messed up nation. If I were to walk into a bear's den, would it be the bear or I who is the aggressor? If we were to confront a mama bear and her cubs, IN THE DEN, who is the hostile aggressor?

Seems we are training our police and officials to be predators of those they "protect." Why are the police not speaking out against such training?

These cops better wake up.
While they are shooting up our families, other cops will be shooting up theirs. This is nothing more than turning all human beings against each other for a mass killing while a few hide like cowards, and step out when its over TO TAKE OVER and control the few that remain.

"the officer and community are better served.”.... REALLY???
Read the daily news, cops are killing innocent people everyday and being protected after doing so. It doesn't matter what oath they take,
they have repeatedly stated their job is NOT to serve and protect the citizens (who pay them), but the state (who trains them to kill).

How stupid these people are that they cannot see how they are being played.

So many of us, so few of them.....and yet, look what we are doing to each other...blindly...ignorantly...destroying ourselves.

Humans....the race with the least amount of brains.
