This reminds me of the picture of the female police officer who had a 30 round magazine backwards in her AR 15. I think the pic was in a thread somewhere on this site. here it is. I hope

More likely a PR flack slapped one together for the photo.

I think he has his BUIS raised. That means he probably won't shoot too many innocent people.:twisted:
:confused: He didn't notice there was no red dot & circle while he was at the range?

I know many policemen are not "gun people," but OTOH if you're going to be issued a weapon to use and lives may depend on what you do, you better know the weapon and how to use it -- CORRECTLY.
IMHO....

Chances are it’s an issue rifle and he didn’t know any better. I see his BUIS is raised, maybe he got frustrated when the electronic sight didn’t work. He should still be able to make a shot with his BUIS. Still, a bit sad. The photo is a quick moment in time…that could have been seconds after someone handed the rifle to him, he may not have had the opportunity to address the problem yet. Still, a weapon meant for serious duty should be ready to go.

No wonder the-powers-that-be in NY only want law enforcement to have magazines with more than 7 rounds. They need the extra rounds to actually hit something.

Well even the "pros" can have a facepalm moment or two....

It gets more attention when it is a pro who makes a goof, see the infamous DEA agent youtube video where the guy making a speech shoots himself in the leg. (Poor guy, luckily no one else was hurt as he was in a packed room.) Still all can learn from these goofs, to cut the odds of similar ones in the future.

I hope all PDs take it to heed with their armorers at the very least.

These pics are funny in a way but they could really get someone killed.
