In Alabama there is no required training or "qualifying."

This just came to mind, and is intended to be a little cynical humor, so don't take offense:
The way some NY cops have been using the "spray-n-pray" method of shooting at perps, hitting innocent bystanders while missing the perps, maybe NYPD has been recruiting blind cops...

Personally? No. I only personally know a few blind people. But Iowa has been doing it and Texas has been helping them hunt.
