When you are done at the range, always clean up your paper targets

    The thing that makes me upset is the article emphasizing race.. That is pure BS.
    Knock that shot off. Had it been a bunch of white criminal mugshots would there be as much outrage? Odds are, no.

    However it is in very bad taste to shoot at pictures of people unless dedicated training targets
    (armed people, hostage scenarios..etc)

    I know the need to condition the mind to fire at a person.. But there are plenty of existing targets out there. Seems like they just grabbed a few sheets of mug shots for practical target placement and headed out..
    I do the same with cardboard that has markings to where I can call targets.

    I don't care if you leave your targets as long as there are no holes in them.:D

    Victimizers crying racism about their mugshots being used at the range by cops. The main complainer in the story killed people by his selfish use of public streets as his own personal drag strip. God knows what the others did.
    I say a good source of recycling/repurposing trash!

    I have my own range, and it can be seen from the road, it you look quick enough. For that reason, the last target is usually left up, with the center mass carefully holed. It is always the standard human cutout on card board I make myself.

    I post mine on the fridge next to my daughter's finger painting.

    These cops used poor judgement, but I don't see what the big deal is.
    Didn't some cops in florida do this with trayvon photos after his shooting?

    Oddly convenient that she just so happened to be at this range after the LEO were done, and they just so happened to not pick up after themselves.
