    No, it wasn't. While the optics of using mug shots was embarrassing for the department in terms of the optics of insensitivity toward the people involved, the exercise was to place the grouping of shots within the box, NOT practicing for a head shot...That is a silly narrative for those like you to paint the police as some kind of murderous cowboys...

    If you cannot see the inherent problems, that's your shortcoming and I see no need to explain it to those capable of understanding.
    Oh, I understand alright...And, I'd put my firearms experience up against yours any day of the week...So, to premise that the use of mug shots was anything other than insensitivity, which toward criminals, I could really care less about, is somehow an exercise to do anything else other than place a grouping of shots in a 2" square from 50 meters is just plain stupid.

    So, tell us why you really support it.
    I see, so since I am arguing that is really nothing to see here, I must support it eh? Is that how your mind works? That explains much...You might try actually having a conversation rather than trying so hard to fit others into your own false mischaracterizations....Just a little advice.

    If a shooter doesn't care about accuracy there is no need for targets.

    tl;dr

    Translation: I like the idea of practicing head shots on black people.

    True. So, why use black peoples' heads as targets...

    They are pieces of paper. They are not "peoples heads".

    If they were to pay me royalties I'd pose for photos for this purpose. Shoot (no pun intended, ok a little), I'd even make different faces.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    No, the people in the boxes have nothing to do with it...But, I understand that is your go to when you've been shown to be wrong.

    I was shown correct at every turn, including the lack of boxes to indicate accuracy on the head-shots.
