Biden Wants Police to Shoot Dangerous Criminals 'In the Leg'

Another day, another embarrassing Biden moment. On Thursday while speaking at a townhall hosted by ABC News, Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden said in dangerous situations police officers should shoot dangerous criminals "in the leg."

Biden stated, “We can do this; you can ban chokeholds. But beyond that you have to teach people how to de-escalate circumstances, de-escalate. So instead of anybody coming at you, and the first thing you do is shoot to kill, you shoot them in the leg.”

So you are going to ban chokeholds, but you are giving the green light to shooting people in the leg. This is when pandering goes wrong.

Biden has suggested shooting people in the leg in the past. This past June Joe Biden suggested shooting suspects in the leg. He said, “Instead of standing there and teaching a cop when there’s an unarmed person coming at them with a knife or something, shoot them in the leg instead of in the heart.”

Robby Soave of Reason explained the problem with aiming for a leg:

Contrary to the former veep’s repeated assertions, neither the cops nor anyone else — except perhaps James Bond — could plan to shoot people in the leg as a matter of routine practice. It would take an expert marksman to accomplish that feat consistently. Unless a target is at close range, standing perfectly still, it’s very difficult to hit a specific location on the body. In reality, people are often moving during shootouts, which means that legs and arms can be the hardest part of the body to hit.

Could Joe Biden be any more out of touch? Of course, he can, he goes further and further off the reservation by the day.

PA Principal Banned from Saying "God Bless America" After Pledge

"I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."

Most Americans, like myself, learned the pledge of allegiance in kindergarten or younger. We recited it every morning before class began, with a hand over our heart. There was no kneeling, no crying about being a "nation under God," and certainly no disrespect.
