So very glad the LEO got out of this one unhurt. He was extremely lucky to make it home. Over all a good shoot but there were some very big issues that could have cost him his life.
My LEO view: on contact he moved flash light to gun hand, bad move slowed him down tremendously, made him drop his flash light. He was able to hit at the gun with the flash light but he could have done that with it in his off hand.
His position was no that great but sometimes you have to move further past the A post then you would like to see a subject.
His guard was down way to soon, I suspect he has been on the job a long time and has made 1000's of stops like this. It only takes 1 to take your life.
When he backed off from the suspect he moved into the suspects line of fire,luckily the supsect did not hit him with his shot. He then moved to the back of the suspects vehicle, that is a good place to be.
Shoots looked good, placement must have been good suspect is not around to tell us so that is good.
Is there other good and bad stuff he did, hell yes but in every shoot there is things we could fix. In the end he went home and the suspect was stopped from hurting him or others.
Understand me, I have never been in this kind of SH!t before and I hope I never am. I am going to use this vid for some firearms training and see what others think. It will help wake up my brother's that need it, sadly there are still some that will not wake up because they are retired on duty. Keep safe and your gun well oiled. Biggunns911
