A company which received $2 million dollars from the DHS has apologized and taken offline “no more hesitation” shooting targets which depicted pregnant women, children, and elderly gun owners in residential settings as “non-traditional threats,” following an online uproar.

Law Enforcement Targets Inc.(LET), a Minneapolis based company that has received almost $2 million dollars in contracts from the Department of Homeland Security over the last three years, recently began selling cardboard cut-out targets designed to desensitize police to “non-traditional threats,” including pregnant women, mothers in school playgrounds, and little boys, as well as elderly gun owners in their homes.

It's not so much my concern what others want to print and sell. Rather, I'm concerned with the fact that there is a demand for these type of targets from our law enforcement agencies. Now go sit back in front of the television and watch another sit-com you degenerate.

lesse, target practice yes having a child target in a simulation helps officers practice to NOT shoot these targets this helps avoid severe casualties on the field. children can POP into such activities in real life.

also I do not watch tv...at all
I am also anti government and in springfield in especially anti law enforcement
however I know these targets are used for simulation to avoid hitting these targets, they are not designed to SHOOT purposely

No, you are mistaken... They are pointing guns and being depicted as "non-traditional THREATS". They are also advertised as "NO MORE HESITATION" targets. I'm not anti-government or anti-police. I am anti-death and believe me I know what smelly, rotten, filth and death looks like when I see it. Just throw a dead possom somewhere and go back a week later. Smelly, rotten, filth and death. There is nothing glamorous about killing, death or war and if you talk to someone who has had the experiance of trench warfare they will likely agree. Yes, hostage situation targets that are used in the type of training you speak of do exist and I am well aware but these are entirely different. They have been removed from the companies website due to public outrage. The company appologized for them. Please brush up on your reading comprehension skills.

Just because they took the targets off-line doesn't mean they're not selling anymore.

I used to think I'd never see the day...

Everything is starting to speed up and gain momentum. A quickening if you will. It could explain the level of arrogance being displayed by some of our elected officials lately. The DHS was intended to be used on americans from the begining. During operation desert storm an average of 70,000 rounds of ammo were used per year during battle and the DHS has now ordered around 2 billion rounds of ammo. Also, armoured pill boxes used for conducting checkpoints and armoured military vehicles are being purchased in large quanities. You have to keep in mind the DHS only operates on U.S. soil. In lawrence county the sheriff's department has facial recognition and iris scanning technology the same kind used on the taliban and alquaeda. People are being brought in and booked in some instances for simple infractions such as failure to wear a seatbelt. The funny thing is that sheriff wrote a letter to the president about the second amendment and here he is greasing the skids for this tyranny helping create a biometric control grid. In a few years there are going to be facial recognition cameras and drones everywhere just spying on us like opressive governments do.

Free child identification program coming to Monett
Friday, February 22, 2013

Lisa Craft
Registration for the Missouri Child Identification and Protection Program (MOCHIP) will be hosted by the Monett Masonic Lodge #129 AF&AM from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, March 9. The lodge is located at 501 13th St. in Monett.

MOCHIP is comprehensive child identification and protection program designed to provide families a proactive means of preparation should their child or teen become missing. Services are offered free of charge and are supported by Missouri Freemasons and other sponsors.

This will be the fifth year that the Monett Lodge has sponsored the program.

Last year approximately 106 children attended to participate in the program. Over 100,000 children have gone through the program. Over 300,000 parents have the information needed to help locate their children if they go missing.

Parents who choose to participate will receive digital photographs and fingerprints of their child on a mini compact disc, all of which will be compatible for the Amber Alert system. A dental bite impression will be taken, which will provide DNA component and a sample that can be sent for a trained canine search. Families will also receive two laminated ID cards

Registration will be held at the Monett Lodge on the day of the MOCHIP event. Forms can be downloaded prior to the event by visiting www.mochip.org and clicking on "about."

I noticed the Copyright after I already posted this Monett times article. It was an honest mistake. Google provides a snapshot of every post on the Monett times website (website has a membership fee) so as far as redistribution goes it was redistributed to me from google.

Just like oppressive governments do. Which government controls their people in a totalitarian state like you described? Only the ones in science fiction. No other government even has the tech you describe so what are you babbling about other than your dystopian fantasies?

Tech Helped Nab and Identify Osama bin Laden
May 3, 2011 06:46 PM ET // by Marianne English

As more details bubble up about the mission to find Osama bin Laden, one thing's for certain: Technology played a role in mapping out the offensive and helped identify America's public enemy no. 1.

In addition to satellite surveillance and the conspicuous lack of Internet and phone connections inside the Al Qaeda leader's compound, other tools were used to sense and identify bin Laden.

NEWS: Cybercriminals Exploit bin Laden's Death
For instance, it's suggested that Navy Seals and other Joint Special Operations Command personnel used Forward Looking Infrared (FLIR) devices to gain a glimpse into activity within the premises. Even though these devices can't sense specifics through walls, they can give soldiers vague ideas of where a person might be in a room given the heat his body gives off.

Specialists also used biometric technology to identify bin Laden after the firefight ceased. These handheld devices, called Secure Electronic Enrollment Kits (SEEKs), can scan fingers, faces and irises and quickly transmit data to FBI databases. A newer version of the platform was probably used during bin Laden's mission and holds up to 40,000 individual data profiles.(The government began filling a biometric database of caught terrorists in the last few years.)

It's unclear what type of information the government had on file for bin Laden, but it could have easily created a comparative profile with existing facial information.

The gadget employs similar 3G technology and wireless networks to transmit data between soldiers on the ground and DATABASES in the United States.

While biometrics isn't new, their increased use in security and identification of the deceased certainly is. And their popularity is likely to grow, according to a Forbes blog post. Iris scanning, for example, can scan more reference points than traditional fingerprint techniques, beefing up ID certainty.

NEWS: Fear of Tech Helped Betray bin Laden
An insider told Spencer Ackerman of Wired.com that special units are taking on a more forensic feel, often injecting tech specialists in the groups.

Although biometrics aren't held to as high of regard as DNA testing, they're gaining consideration at security checkpoints and even political events such as voting. This way, officials argue, flagged individuals can be entered into the database and stopped when scanned again.

Technology was also used as the unit practiced the mission within a replica compound in the United States earlier in April, according to National Journal.
