  1. Only one Black guy? Hmm, program needs work on inclusivity.

  2. πŸ˜ΆπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸ»β€Wow that's nice πŸ™‚

  3. OK I'LL SAY IT …SINCE NO ONE ELSE HAS THE BALLS …

    MORE RETARDED PEOPLE WITH GUNS …..

  4. Great, vulnerable minds being indoctrinated into the Blue Gang. ACAB.

  5. I wonder who thought of this wonderful plan!

  6. Instead of training the interaction between Police and mentally challenge person they try to train the mentally challenged. This is going to go great. Now they going to arrest them for impersonation of police when someone with mental challenges believes they may do this even if not hired. Tell me if this happens.

  7. What a bad idea. They want a retart holding a gun? This means more lawsuits and protest.
