Friends, I cut a lot of background and context out of this video to give you the very most important :30 for your Active Self Protection. Please watch it, and think about the lessons to be learned from it for your self defense. How would you respond in this situation? To see the longer video and get some explanation of the situation, please go here: http://goo.gl/3gcSjx Lessons: 1. The officer with the shotgun had it loaded with bean bag rounds. They are less than lethal. Notice that in this case they were very ineffective, even with several direct, close range hits. That hammer-wielding suspect could have caved his head in. When in a deadly force encounter, use deadly force! 2. The officer wearing the lapel cam used his sidearm, and to good effect. The bad guy was pronounced dead at the hospital later. That said, look how far he got with several rounds in him! Don't buy the myth that says that people always die immediately when shot. It's just not true. Be ready to put lots of shots on target if you need to. 3. That said, the officer shot until the threat stopped. Once the suspect was running AWAY, the officer stopped firing. Good restraint there. We shoot to stop the threat, not to kill. Our goal is always to protect ourselves. We don't choose to kill others, we choose to protect our lives. 4. Real defensive encounters are scary, brutal, chaotic, and brief. Be ready for all of those. Attitude. Skills. Plan.
