It is just amazing…. when cops are not shooting dogs (their own and others),cows, veterans just off a midnight job shift, other cops and law enforcement or threatening teenagers, Concealed Carry Citizens, pedestrians, physically or mentally impaired individuals…. they walk into volatile situations as a complete menace to themselves and others before a single shot has been fired!

Today’s example, a SWAT Cop (those guys…. the highly trained, highly practiced special Super Cops who regular Cops call to do the heavy lifting) with a visibly non-functional rifle deployed in real time!
How is it possible to know the rifle is not ready for use? Because a very distinctive easily identified sight is mounted backwards. If anyone had bothered just once to look through the sight for a moment they would have known something was wrong. Immediately. We can only hope when that moment finally comes, presumably in the heat of a firefight, the officer will have the wisdom to hold his fire.
Nobody up or down the chain of command told him to get lost before he hurt someone, or questioned his preparation in the days, weeks or months leading up to the crisis, or even thought to tell anyone up or down the chain of command!
How many hunt clubs or target ranges would summarily remove an ordinary citizen who had a loaded rifle with a sight installed backwards demonstrating to one and all it had never even been dry fired?
This was NOT a simple mistake. It was, in fact, a very complicated one. Besides the reversed sight installation, the rifle was never inspected at a muster, it was never fired at a range, it was never adjusted for maximum performance by ANYONE, let alone the officer who carried it as his issue weapon.
Sigh. Coming soon to a Police Department near you….
