A Miami-area police department responded on Friday to public outrage over its snipers using photos of black suspects the agency had previously arrested for target practice, saying that photos of real people were often used for training.

The use of the mugshots was revealed to police leaders in late December after members of the Florida Army National Guard discovered the photos at a shooting range during their annual weapons qualifications training, according to the North Miami Beach Police Department and a Miami NBC affiliate.

"This is not a race issue. There was no mal-intent or prejudice involved," a police statement said.

The department said the mugshots were those of suspects arrested more than a decade ago, and that photos of real people were often used during sniper training to simulate real life.

Woody Deant, whose mugshot from 15 years ago was among those used, was shocked to learn that police were using a picture of his face for target practice, according to broadcaster NBC 6.

"The picture actually has like bullet holes,” Deant told NBC 6. "One in my forehead and one in my eye."

"I was speechless," he said.

Meh... I don't think I care. They need a real picture to use as a target, why not use mugshots?
Link Posted: 1/17/2015 1:44:17 PM EST
Hell, if it helps them terminate the bad guys I'll send them my picture so they can train.

Because it's in incredibly poor taste.

If you don't like it then don't put yourself in the position where the police take your mugshot.

I couldn't care less if they do stuff like this but I do care that they were careless and got caught. Shows a lot about them.

I agree might even put some fear into the arrestees with multiple arrests for violent crimes

Had they just used white boy pictures the racists would have claimed the police were racist for not using a black or two for diversity.
Link Posted: 1/17/2015 2:21:27 PM EST
Hell, were there active warrants on them? if so what was wrong?

Wasn't the classic silhouette target patterned off of John Dillinger?

My department had to switch from black silhouettes to purple rectangles because a diversity-hire LT from Austin bitched about the systematic targeting of "innocent black folk" by law enforcement.

I'm sure they'll have my back if I ever have to shoot someone that happens to be black

Does active warrant mean shoot them on sight?

The department is just being green. They are just putting the printouts through a second use before discarding them.

Seriously. I'm sure there were multiple garbage cans on the range, their use would have avoided this fake butt hurt.

No, it's just paper. I give zero fucks. I'll care if they shoot an actual cop though.

Not so much outrage. Sorry.
