    All kidding aside, I’m glad the hurt didnt happen.

    That the bad guy’s oodaloop was fucked is an understatement; however, that was not apparent until the contact. He could have just as easily popped out and started shooting. The officer would have been way behind the curve as the suspect had a stable place to shoot from, and the officer was rushing in.

    The officer also took his buddies out of the gunfight by rushing in.

    I’ll take the blue falcon award for $200, Alex.

    Not for nothing, but chances are that officer can back up every action made. Aiming at an armed fleeing felon who was actively driving towards oncoming traffic? Lethal threat x’s 2. His background was all woods, so I don’t see an issue there. After stopping and getting out of the vehicle, it wasn’t a regular felony stop, and in my mind he made a good tactical choice to close the gap quicker than the bad guy could decide what to do. He had his firearm ready to work if needed. As for having said firearm to the back of his skull for so long, it appeared finger was off the trigger and the suspect had yet to be fully searched. Remember, even a restrained suspect can still use a weapon if they can get their hands on one. There are plenty of cases to back that up.

    I can see how a use of force would be necessary, if I heard “armed robbery” correctly, but the tactics range from dangerous (aiming out of a moving vehicle) to self-exposing (rushing a possibly armed criminal from close range). A defense attorney may even be able to argue overuse of force considering the lack of a fight the arrestee gave.

    One question, Two words. Felony takedown?

    Why are we glorifying a video like this? This officer uses piss-poor tactics at best, and was deliberately reckless at worst…

    Personally, I love the “grab the hair” takedown! I need to start training my guys that one! Glad it ended the way it did.

      That move works great; however, it may lead to the transmission of STD’s, or worse: tricycle motors.

    I love to see a bad guy scared shitless as much as anyone else. But how smart is the cop at 3:50? Dude is obviously under control having been handcuffed and all. What happens if the cop has an ND, and then gets charged with manslaughter. Anyhow, awesome video.
