The Dumbest Man in DC Wants to Retrain Cops to Shoot Armed and Dangeous Felons in the Leg or Shoulder

Joe Biden says that when cops are confronted with a violent criminal using deadly force against them, they should just go for winging shots or just shoot the guns out of the Bad Guys' hands.

Just like in those Tom Mix movies Ol' Joe enjoyed so much when he was an All American Flankerback in nineteen naughty-naught!

Our commander-in-chief, President Joe Biden, is apparently one such person. While giving a speech at the National Action Network's Martin Luther King Jr. Day breakfast in Washington, the "leader" of the free world decided to weigh in on your local police force should be handling situations where a firearm is necessary.

"We have to retrain cops," said Biden. "Why should you always shoot with deadly force? The fact is if you need to use your weapon, you don't have to do that."

In the world inhabited by the non-mentally-demented, 2022 was a year in which law enforcement saw an increase in fatalities inflicted on them by criminals, thanks to the wave of chaos and murder unleashed on the country by the Democrat Party.

Fraternal Order of Police National Vice President Joe Gamaldi sounded the alarm on a growing number of law enforcement fatalities in 2022 Sunday on "Fox News Live."

Firearms-related fatalities claimed the lives of 64 police officers in 2022, contributing to a roughly 21% increase from the average of 53 per year from 2010-2020, according to data from the National Law Enforcement Memorial Fund (NLEOMF).

"It's absolutely horrible. Unfortunately, the war on cops in 2022 just continued to march on. We had 331 police officers shot. That's a 13% increase since 2019. We had nearly 90 ambush attacks and 64 of those officers lost their lives," Gamaldi said.
Firearms-related fatalities have claimed the lives of 64 officers in 2022.

"And that comes on the heels of 2021, which was the deadliest year for law enforcement and intentional homicides in over two decades. Now, you combine that with what we're seeing nationwide, where we've had over 20,000 homicides for two years in a row. We haven't seen that since the 1990s."

Gamaldi told host Bill Melugin he believes there are five reasons why more police officers have been killed in the past year, saying a "culture of lawlessness" has gripped the country.

He argued more deaths were caused by "an open border, rogue DAs, activist judges, a revolving door criminal justice system, and generally a society that tells people you're no longer accountable for your own actions."

"So the leaders in this country, from the White House on down, need to understand that we're fighting for the very soul of our nation right now and we're losing. And that's why we see chaos and disorder everywhere we look. And we just can't go on like this," Gamaldi continued.

Melugin asked what other reasons could be behind the increase in fatalities besides a growing anti-police movement.

"We in law enforcement have been treated like crap for the better part of a decade. We've been demonized, we've been denigrated, and people just have less and less respect for law enforcement. But they also know that they're not going to be held accountable for their actions," Gamaldi responded.

Both Democratic lawmakers and members of the media have pushed the movement to defund police.
