Florida’s police was caught using mug shots of African American men for target practice

A South Florida family is furious at North Miami Beach law enforcement after mug shots of African American men were utilized as targets at a shooting range for law enforcement education.

It absolutely was a typical Saturday morning last month when Sgt. Valerie Deant arrived at the shooting range in Medley, or so she thought.

Deant, who plays clarinet aided by the Florida Army National Guard’s 13th Army Band, along with her fellow soldiers were during the shooting range for his or her annual weapons qualifications training.

What the soldiers discovered once they entered the range made them angry: mug shots of African American men apparently used as targets by North Miami Beach law enforcement snipers, that has used the number ahead of the Guardsmen.

A lot more startling for Deant, among the images was her brother. It had been Woody Deant’s mug shot that taken fifteen years ago, after he had been arrested in connection to a drag race in 2000 that left two different people dead. His mug shot was one of the pictures of five minorities used as targets by North Miami Beach law enforcement, them all riddled by bullets.
