no more hesitation targets of women, children, elderly
Debate Rounds (3)
The FBI has a database on LEOKAs (law enforcement officers killed in action) which also provides specifics about the assailants, including gender. However, it does not include stats for offenders under 12 years of age, perhaps because of a lack of. Of 77 deaths to officers by gun, 2 of the assailants were women. None were elderly.
If your'e not familiar with the targets and the controversy, review the provided links to the facebook page and the archived web page of LETargets before the content was removed (from view, not sale to law enforcement agencies).
Should these targets be banned from use because they might desentize officers into shooting innocent civilians that they imagine have gun, simply by the suggestion that these people are a threat?
My opponent's number, 77 crimes nationally, is ludicrously incorrect.
Aggravated Assault is the real problem. There were 258,765 arrests made for this crime in 2011
One in four women own a gun.
The issue is beyond gun ownership. Knife ownership combined with felonious intent is enough for an officer to shoot. It would probably be safe to say 100% of the above own a meat cleaver. As for Aggravated Assault offenders, the numbers support my position.
Also, the position you are taking supports discrimination. It's true that most Aggravated Assault cases are men who have not entered middle age. However, it is profiling to practice only on men.
