Spray and Pray

A friend of mine retired from the Milwaukee Police Department after 30 years of honorable service, some of which was spent in Internal Affairs Division.

He's not enchanted with the Modern Police Department Training.

These days, by his testimony, the rookies are taught the "spray and pray" method of using a handgun. Actually hitting a target is no longer emphasized. In his words, "they can't shoot straight." Worse, they are not required to do so in order to win and maintain their badge.

Keep that in mind as the stories roll off the presses at the Journal-Sentinel.

Obviously after posting this you won't be tailgating any Milwaukee police car.
