In the recent shooting at the Empire State Building, we discovered that all the wounded were shot by the police. That reminded me about just how often the police need to throw dozens of rounds at people before bringing them down. If any of us took that many shots to bring down a deer or grouse, we'd never live it down from our buddies. So why do we allow the police to be such miserable shots? After all, isn't it a worker's duty to be proficient with their tools even under stress?
