A Good Reminder
This is an excellent reminder of the dangers of proned suspects. After the intro it's the first segment and runs to about 7:30 minutes. Basically it's about the research Dr. Bill Lewinsky and the Force Science Institute are conducting into proned suspects presenting a gun and firing on officers. It was very eye opening.

I seriously applaud the effort of this study. It would have been better and real world had they also done this study in a darkened situation. My download time is lagging so they may have and I didn't see it. The idea to educate the public is spot on and I agree wholeheartedly. However, it is much harder to see those microsecond clues that you are about to be shot when trying to find them in the dark.Do not war for peace. If you must war, war for justice. For without justice there is no peace. -me
