I saw this on another forum and had to post it here. This kind of gives you a sense of what to do and not to do in an armed robbery situation. Even though this was an off duty cop it could have been anyone of us. I have friends who own businesses and do their own security.

His reaction to the first bad guy he encountered was frickin' BEAUTIFUL. His passing of the bad guy's gun blended into his "surrender" posture perfectly, as did the presentation of his weapon and subsequent firing of the weapon. The bad guy was dead before he ever knew what happened.

I wouldn't have taught that any differently in my FMA class.

Thanks for sharing. NICE.

:clap I'm sure this bad guy was bragging to his friends that he was going for the big score. He never thought he would meet his maker.

What a fine officer! I wish I could buy him a drink and thank him. The difference between him getting those two shots off and that POS firing first and killing him was very slim. Thank God the Sergeant won that encounter.

It goes to show you that in the real world, you may never even have a chance to defend yourself from deadly mayhem. Situational awareness is so crucial in order to give yourself at least a chance to position yourself to survive, let alone fire in self defense.

Thanks for sharing!

Another point to make about what a great job he did here, you notice that when he heads out into the street he is in full control, he isn't shooting wildly and putting a lot of bullets "down range". There is only that one single shot at the vehicle as it accelerates away.

Many folks, under that kind of stress could have easily emptied their weapon at the vehicle and not even realize it until well after the incident is over.

Great job!

I thought I heard his revolver go "click" as the vehicle was speeding away. That may account for why he didn't send more rounds downrange. :doh

He did an outstanding job :clap...but I think this scenario tends to reveal the limitations of using a revolver for self-defense when dealing with multiple attackers (and don't everybody go jumping on me, I own a bunch of revolvers too ;)).

The gunman the police officer shot inside the store at point blank range, the officer didn't secure the handgun still in the gunmans hand. That officer is lucky he didnt get shot in the back.

Bollocks. He controlled the elbow, effectively controlling the entire arm. The bad guy may eventually have been able to maneuver in such a way as to get his gun back into play, but before he had a chance to even think it, he was on the ground, leaking vital fluids.

I wish the video was still available. Never get sick of watching it. Kudos.

Sorry for the old thread resurrection, but the video didn't seem to work anymore. I did a tiny bit of searching and found another link to it that works. Excellent work and situational awareness by the cop, I would sure like to buy him a drink! :D :drinks

Link is here

The video is still available. I just watched it twice. Don't click on the play button. Click on the "link" above the video itself.

All I have to say is WOW.....

God bless the police. They put themselves in harms way daily for very little pay! I support them.
