Made Up Stuff You See on Television 0

If you watch mystery shows, you’ve seen them.

Those scenes in which a police officer, usually Our Hero, the Great Detective, has to re-qualify on the firing range: The officer walks into a simulated alley as figures representing gangsters or law-abiding citizens pop up in the smoke. The officer has to decide quickly whether to shoot or not. Errors result in penalties.

If such trials do indeed exist in real life, they clearly do not work and there are certainly no penalties.
