You really shouldn’t need training to do that.

I guess this just goes to show you how much Quanell X knows about gun handling…

Quanell X, a well-known community activist, arranged the news conference and stood with Joaquin (the brother of the would-be car thief mentioned here — ed.) as he faced reporters. He called on the Humble Police Department to better train their officers to not use their guns to break out car windows.

Seriously, if you’re hiring people who need to be trained not to use projectile weaponry to break car windows, your agency has problems that all the training in the world isn’t going to help — especially when police experts are going on record as saying that such an action should only be taken as a very last resort. What would people be saying if a civilian did something like that? And why are they giving the cop a pass on it? I tend to agree the guy breaking into the car got what he deserved, but I don’t think that should exempt the cop’s actions from the scrutiny they deserve.

    Indeed! Where were their “Asps”, those collapsible batons?

    I would have used the butt of my M-4 or 870/1100…just saying. Be effective, more effective than a baton, and odds of a ND would be LOW.

    Under stress, people do things they would never do. And sometimes don’t believe they did until shown the film. ASP’s were probably on their belts, a long way from action in that split second.
