    I really don't care. I have. and that is why police officers are trained.

    its from Reuters..

    When will these terror attacks by common Americans stop?
    People have been hurting other people since the beginning of time. It's very Pollyanna to think they'll ever stop.

    The post maggie quoted made absolutely no indication that the poster believed what she decided it believed.

    So I went and did the same for her.
    He touched her over her bra and underpants, she says, and guided her hand to touch him over his underwear

    Is that why they miss their targets so often?

    obviously they aren't trained enough

    but they are far better trained than 99% of the scumbags they get in gun fights with


    most of whom "learn" how to shoot watching TV

    (trust me turning a handgun sideways is not conducive to accurately hitting targets quickly)

    Are you sure about that?

    I don't think they care about accuracy.
