« Notes from the August 30, 2016 Weekly Police Commission Meeting | Main | Motorcycle Officer Confronted by Man Armed with Two Handguns »

September 07, 2016


As any police employee is trained to keep control over the mental, social also psychical of a suspect. All police employees are in the understandings because each one has the skills. These skills are obtained during training before entering into the field to work. Such skills should be used before the use of any gun. A use of a gun should be the last resort not the quick reaction from a trained police employee for the reaction which has not even happened yet from a suspect.

The officer who shot Luna first may have been doing what was correct. However, when Luna was already injured laying on the ground the female officer should have understood he is on the ground and wounded.

If I was her as a police officer I would have communicated and handled the suspect like this: Partner lets restrained him now. Partner go for his feet. Ii will go for his arms. I get him into my hand cuffs. Partner lets use some mass to give him something to work on while I get him secured into my hand cuffs. Partner while holding his feet hold the taser too. Partner be prepared to use the taser if I am struggling and can not secure him right away.

Don't be so modest, please share how you would have handled the raid on Osama's hideout to take him alive. Or how you could have done Sully's emergency landing in the Hudson better.
