Lone cop fights for his life, people stand around, film and criticize

Wanted Man Refuses Officer's Orders | Active Self Protection

I know that there are some people out there who shouldn't be cops and give them bad names and that the mechanisms that protect those bad cops should be torn down. But this isn't the be all end all. There is another side to the medal that is clearly shown in this video.

 

This cop was doing his job right. Yet these clueless bystanders lived such a sheltered life that they didn't even realize that lives were being at stake here. Even their own, had the gun went off when the cop and suspect were fighting over it. They were just standing in the zone of danger, filming and criticizing a cop who was desperately trying to not die.

If that Officer had been female we would have one more dead female cop, but that doesn't matter; all that matters to some folks.  To some folks, dead female cops is the price of maintaining the fantasy of gender equality.

Let's look at the video. These are two big guys, the officer seems to be really fit rather than fat and actually trained for the situation, although he probably was too desperate for an arrest. Ideally he should have decided to use a tazer and keep a bit more distance (it is a little hard to judge, though, as space is restricted) rather than engage in physical altercation, ask the suspect to lie down, put him in cuffs and that would have been the end of it, or taze him when disobedient. 

 

So you are probably right, most women would have been overwhelmed by the suspect in this case, but so would you and probably 70-80% of the "force" we see on yt.

 

Nice try, though.
