*GRAPHIC*









Throwing up a few videos for analysis because after watching many combat footage, police footage and shoot-out videos I note many not only mistakes but training relationships that are breaking down such as how to remain cool under fire, when your life is in danger, the truth about the bodies natural reactions such as flinching and so forth.

I've watched so many videos but by far the best of the lot was "World's deadliest shootouts" of which showed time and time again why police officers must work on their individual skills as at times they're either alone or not in mutual support with a partner. In terms of SWAT videos I've seen such as a shop owner being taken hostage, close to the door and SWAT going to the door - suspect shoots out the glass at the police. The whole stack of SWAT peels back and one officer stays in the fatal funnel and shoots the suspect to the point of being combat ineffective with 5-6 rounds in him! This one officer then grabs the hostage and pushes her out of the fatal funnel to which other officers pull her away.

Now that natural reaction was for the main brunt of the SWAT guys to get out the frigging way of danger. The one who stayed was in the fatal funnel and making all the mistakes but won. That may be luck but analyzing these incidents is very important. Other videos show huge flinches as combat occurs or is likely to - in which sometimes officers predict violence and kind of react off that fear just before or just as it begins. That instinctual jump reflex gets us into gear, pumps adrenaline through us and gets us ready - only after constant exposure and study do we begin to use it to roll in the direction we want to roll. And sometimes that means reality other than training - you can't get the full brunt of reality through training. At the same time some Scientists believe our heart, and that jump, is apart of our CNS in which the heart sends a message to the brain. Maybe medicine will help pull tactics in a better direction someday...
