Heart-pounding shootout simulator will elevate police violence - Nooganomics. Local economy & free markets
print By David Tulis A police cheerleader group in Chattanooga is trying to raise up to F$65,000 to buy a simulator for six police departments and the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Department. The simulator received heavy media coverage during the annual fundraising luncheon Oct. 20 of the Aegis Law Enforcement Foundation of Greater Chattanooga. Print and TV reporters gushed about its realism and the nerve-wracking anxiety they felt as they simulated potentially violent encounters like those occasionally faced by police. Roy Exum, for example, says there is a “critical need” for law enforcement agencies to have the simulator available full time.
