Let me rephrase my earlier question, or exercise: if you (plural you, I'm not singling anyone out) believe that it's OK for police to train with targets showing realistic photos of people, what are acceptable
characteristics (age, gender, race, clothing, grooming, attractiveness..) for the people depicted to have? How would police know that they're not
"regular gun owners" who shouldn't be shot?
And for the sake of argument, let's assume that one of the purposes of this is to train for "rare occurrences."
C'mon... I dare you all to answer.
Or do you think that training with realistic targets is never OK?
