Firearms And Policing Expert Joe Biden Says We Should Train Cops To Shoot Armed Criminals In The Leg
Former Vice President Joe Biden said during an ABC News Town Hall on Thursday, October 15, 2020, that police officers should shoot people in the leg instead of shooting to kill.
Police rip Biden’s repeated advice to shoot suspects ‘in the leg’
John Evans, president of the Buffalo Police Benevolent Association, told Fox News that Biden’s suggestion is “absolutely ridiculous” and “incredibly ignorant.”
“The guy’s clueless,” Evans said. “And I know he’s just trying to appease his left-wing base but it’s a really foolish statement.”
Thursday’s town hall wasn’t the first time Biden made the leg suggestion. In June, Biden said that — if facing a threat from a person with “a knife or something” — police should be trained to “shoot ‘em in the leg instead of the heart.”
Police officers called out Biden at the time for the unrealistic suggestion, so they are unsure why he is still campaigning on it just days before the election.
