Excitement is mounting in the United States ahead of the launch of the National Police Shooting League.
20,000 law enforcement agencies will be competing for the coveted title of Most Lethal after the Federal Government finally made it mandatory for individual law enforcement agencies to write down how many people they each murder every year.
The league, which will be the largest competitive shooting competition in world history but only include incidents of Police shooting deaths as apparently the federal government doesn’t consider wounding or incidents of common garden Police brutality important enough statistics to record in a national database.
The 2016 league features categories such as;
Moving Targets – where police officers are expected to shoot a fleeing unarmed fugitive in the back.
The Traffic Stop – where members of the public are shot in the head for a minor road traffic infringement.
Executions – close range double taps with extra-points awarded for compliant, unarmed or handcuffed targets.
It may come as a surprise to many people to learn that no such league currently exists but it’s true. There is currently no effective mandatory centralised national database documenting just how many people the police shoot every year in the United States of America.
The sponsors of the 2016 Reebok Crossfit Games, Glock, are thought to be in discussions about sponsorship alongside insidious private equity giant Cerberus and Walmart.
