Check this out and see the policeman getting shot in the face.

See the video here...

The only question I have here is...why did the policeman keep on being exposed in the line of fire of the shotgun for so long while trying to 'talk the perp down' ...

I wasn't there, I know, but I keep wondering about the policeman's 'cover' during the confrontation at the point of a shotgun held on him by an obvious 'nutcake'...

It looks like some of the comments in the article were deleted and I can just imagine what they were all about :(

The first rule of survival when up against a gun...is effective cover and concealment...

It be interesting to know exactly where the policeman was when the shotgun went off.

There is a lesson here for us all...

again not one to monday morning.......guess I am anyway. To me the police wait far too long to shoot this perp. The first time he points a weapon at me (not knowing of course whats in the store behind him) I'm pulling the trigger. I'm not very good at negotiating.

Agree with Steve... Pull the trigger now!!! Ask questions later... Too much bureaucracy blurring vision and response!!!!! :twisted:

I am still befuddled by the policeman's cover at the time the shot was fired.

The very first thing I learned in the 'duelatron' scenario, as run by John Farnam of Defense Training International...was to take effective cover when faced by someone with a gun.

First take effective cover ...next "peek out" quickly...then take the needed action.

We don't have enough information...I guess.
