Democrat presidential hopeful Joe Biden suggested that police training would change for the better if it included teaching officers to shoot unarmed people in the leg rather than firing a fatal shot.
Biden’s comments were reported by CBS News’ Bo Erickson, who quoted Biden saying, “There are a lot of things that can change” regarding police training.
One of those things is how police react when being charged by an “unarmed” person, although Biden reportedly described the hypothetical “unarmed” person as having “a knife or something.”
Erickson quoted Biden saying, “Shoot them in the leg instead of the heart is a very different thing.”
