Company selling targets with images of Americans to DHS for firearms training
examiner.com ^ | Feb 19, 2013 | BY: RYAN KELLER

Posted on 02/21/2013 10:12:36 PM PST by Jet Jaguar

Law Enforcement Targets, Inc., a company that sells law enforcement and federal agencies “realistic” paper targets for firearms training, is providing the Department of Homeland Security with images of “non-traditional threats.”

The people in these images are most likely Americans, with such images as “’pregnant woman threat,’ ‘older man with shotgun,’ ‘older man in home with shotgun,’ ‘older woman with gun,’ ‘young school aged girl,’ ‘young mother on playground,’ and ‘little boy with real gun,’” writes Paul Joseph Watson on Tuesday.

View slideshow: Law Enforcement Target's Non-Traditional Threat targets It would appear as if this company is trying to help police and law enforcement prepare for fighting Americans. As Watson points out, there would have to be a demand among the agencies to which the company sells in order to put these products on the market.

Law Enforcement Target’s Web site declares that these targets are “designed to give officers the experience of dealing with deadly force shooting scenarios with subjects that are not the norm during training,” and are “meant to help the transition for officers who are faced with these highly unusual targets for the first time.”

The line of images is called "No More Hesitation," implying that law enforcement shouldn't hesitate to kill these people just because they're Americans.

Speculation that the DHS is preparing for fighting within the United States has abounded for some time. Over the last year, the department has purchased nearly 2 billion rounds of hollow point ammunition of various calibers, enough to fight a 30 year war and shoot every American man, woman and child four times.

I took a look at their site. No targets depicting any non-whites, as far as I could find.

I first saw an article about them yesterday. I thereupon went to their site, and saw all those targets there. They were in the “scenario targets” category:

http://www.letargets.com/estylez_ps.aspx?searchmode=category&searchcatcontext=~010000~010100

They have since been taken down, but I saw them there yesterday.

The “Wayback Machine” internet archives site also has the targets in question. Look quickly before they get scrubbed, because Wayback complies with site owner requests to take stuff down.

“shoot/don’t shoot” targets have been around forever.
“no hesitation” could be also mean just being able to make a decision quickly. (kinda important to be able to do in some situations) not sure this is the big deal some are making it to be.

now if they all had Tea Party shirts or “Palin 2016” on or were waving Gadsen flags...I’d be worried.

I wonder if LAPD asks for ones that look like newspaper gals?
Or if they have any SWAT ones featuring black labs?

My first call was and is, this is a hoax. Just the kind of thing Leftists would create to launch, then sit back and watch the howls of non-fact-checking outrage just as we’ve seen.

Ping to posts 104 and 105. They are real, and I saw them myself on their site yesterday before they took them down.

These days, no old pages can truly be “disappeared.” There are many “wayback machine” apps to find them.

It only indicates shame and guilt when a company or agency tries to hide something like these “shoot the todder without hesitation!” targets.

The “scrubbed” web pages can be pulled out of the ether at will.

Are any of you aware of any PR attempt by these agencies to dispel such “Right wing conspiracy rumors” and assure we the little people / subjects that they have no intention of violating our Constitution, forcibly disarming us, rounding us up, torturing and/or selectively mowing us down by the bloody dump-truck loads?

By the agencies? No, our "betters" feel no need to apologize, ever.

The company did, and further identified agency requests as the genesis of the idea in the first place.

See, for example, post #88.

Old Sarge, you are indeed an old guy like me, in that you still expect the art of proofreading to be applied today. My wife and I roll our eyes several times a day at glaring mispellings and typos both on the internet and in printed material. We see them in veterans’ group newsletters, magazines, and company websites. Kids today just don’t learn how to spell, or care, and nobody checks. It’s amazing. We even have seen them on brochures and websites from “brand name” universities trying to recruit our high school senior daughter! So no, they don’t surprise me one bit. Nobody cares. Nobody checks. Nobody gives a damn...but us old relics of a bygone day.

If they wanted more realistic targets, they would create them depicting women in aprons clutching a toddler slumped on the floor in their kitchen with a look of terror on her face.

Yeah, Boss, you and I are of that same breed. I don’t tolerate it in my own writing, and check myself constantly. Part of the problem is, MS Word has made too many lazy people. Autocorrect is NOT your friend.

I’m not nearly as published as YOU are, but we both take pride in our works. Our writing is a reflection of ourselves.

But then, sometimes insisting on propur speling and gramer is a loosing battle...

Yes, which is why the use of "law enforcement" armed drones on U.S. soil will occur with regularity in the very near future.

Sadly, no. Even more sad is the simple fact that the very people who made the revolution possible are ALWAYS on the hit list.

They have proven that they:

• have a traitorous mindset.
• are willing to act to overthrow their own government.
• have the organizational skills needed for a successful revolution.
• have the military skills to wreak havoc.

Still, they are invariably surprised when it is their own back against the pockmarked wall, every single time, every single revolution, without exception.

I didn’t listen to all of Beck, but didn’t hear him mention this. Listening to Rush now and not a peep.
Nothing of FOX news or any other off-line media that I’m aware of.
Are they all oblivious or have they been ordered to give it a good looking away and shuttin’ up?

If anyone sees this appear on “big media” - conservative or otherwise - drop us a link, won’t ya?

I have a feeling that the goombahs are in major damage control / denial mode over it, and very few “normal” American sheeple are going to know this ever happened.

I haven’t checked but assume that all of the major “SNOPES” like sites are trying to debunk it as a hoax as hard as they can in an attempt to head the viral e mails off at the pass.

Has anyone put up a You Tube about it yet? (Maine Prepper has but it’s audio only)
