Police officer draws gun too close, is grabbed by suspect

A police officer draws her weapon and covers the suspect within arm’s reach on a bus. A struggle for the gun ensues before a second officer assists.

  • A suspect may not comply even with a gun drawn on them
  • Maintaining a safe distance is necessary even if the suspect is unarmed
  • Entering the bus was completely unnecessary in the first instance as it only created more risk due to the confined space
  • Grappling and ground fighting skills are still required even if guns are available

Police clear house and shoot man armed with knife

Police in this video clear a house room by room with a mix of best practice and sloppier methods (in particular brazenly opening doors and sticking their head or guns in) before they are confronted with a man who attacks with a knife. Luckily, in the last room they did not approach the closet door immediately and open it, allowing enough of a reactionary gap to avoid being stabbed.
