Police need retention holsters

leave a comment »

I have long thought that police need retention holsters.  Apparently, there are levels of retention, and I am not sure what level is best, but some level such that a combatant reaching for the police officer’s gun won’t be able to get it or shoot it.  Generally speaking police need retention holsters, and, again, speaking generally, they don’t use them.

I have held this belief even before this happened: New York officer shot, killed after crazed man snatches gun from holster: police  (I was just a couple of miles away from the scene of that crime)

Now:  Rolen v. City of Cleveland, Court of Appeals, 6th Circuit 2016

This new case (well worth reading in its entirety) reinforces my belief that police need retention holsters.
