...and watch those cops do everything completely opposite to American cops- that is, having fire discipline and actual aim. Total 8 rounds fired in at most 3 round groupings, all look to be on target. American cops would have fired every round they had in the mag and hit once, maybe.

My first thought too. It makes me chuckle when people say that CC'ers are dangerous and hold them up to the standard of our cops for marksmanship. That would be a step backward for most people, I'd imagine.

These guys were really professional. Props to them.

1. The title says it's a takedown of the two suspect that killed the British soldier a week ago.
2. These suspects lived.
3. The British soldier is pixelated out of the imagery
4. It's news, it's newsworthy.

This is as much a snuff film as the shots of twin towers falling or the Challenger or Columbia disasters.

Yes, very professional. Most likely in the 14 minutes it took them to arrive, they had time to practice on the in station simulators once or twice, then get debriefed by their trainers, going over their simulations frame by frame and checking the answers on their safety quizzes one at a time.

Remember everyone, diversity is our strength!  The only way to make things better is to keep importing violent, illiterate savages into our peaceful communities.  Also, background checks are racists so we can't have those at all.

So, 5 out of 8 rounds into a guy who has three slugs in him and is dick in the dirt spread out on the tarmac with no "Halt!" or, anything, is good police work?

I hope the guy was guilty since they decided to forgo the trial.

He was running towards the officer with a meat cleaver in his hands.  What was she supposed to do?

The police turned up within 2 minutes, but couldn't approach the subjects due to the volatility of the situation. The Armed Response Unit got there as soon as possible, and the second they did, the psycopaths with the meat cleavers rushed at them (as was their plan) in an attempt to kill them too. The police acted perfectly in response to this specific situation.

I *wish* people shooting video with cell phones would do the simplest things to stabilize the shot...lean against anything, park one corner of the camera/phone against something, pull the camera closer into your body and not held at shaky arms-length... sigh.

If they are aiming for the legs, they are against training of most departments and military forces.  You fire to stop the threat and if your using your service weapon that is an escalation to lethal force.  Aiming at a narrow moving leg or arm would be incredibly difficult and tend to lead to missing the target and potentially having your bullet hit an innocent bystander.  When you fire your weapon, you aim center mass as that is the largest area available and therefore likely to hit the target. This isn't a trick shot competition where you have time to perfect your shot and repeat over and over again, it is a RL fluid situation where you don't know what your target is doing.  You have to play percentages and hit what you can hit.

Know you're probably mostly joking, but as much as we all (including me) beat up on cops, why not give them props when they do something right?

This is not a daily occurrance. Even though the people taking the video were at a very safe distance, a situation like this is pretty bloody scary. Keeping the camera steady was probably the last thing on their mind. They were probably distracted by the partially decapitated young man bleeding to death before their eyes to worry about aesthetics

There's a lot I am impressed with with the UK police, notably how there is some enormous numbers of them that have no guns. Regardless, I am more than a bit shocked that it took 14 minutes for the guys with the guns to show up. There may be a good reason for the delay, but I haven't heard it yet.

(On the other hand, I think a complete reading shows that Fubini and vossiewulf were bashing the US cops, I stuck up for the US cops (not sure why) by bashing the UK cops.)

On the way to work, I was wondering how Snow Crash got it so right and yet, here we are, 2013 and no loogie guns.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sticky_foam

After testing the product for corrections applications, Sandia provided the U.S. Marine Corps' Operation United Shield with sticky foam guns and supporting equipment to assist in the withdrawal of U.N. peacekeepers from Somalia. Problems with this technology include: the serious risk of smothering (suffocating) the subject; skin clean-up (the foam may not be toxic, but solvents are often harsh); "gun" clogging; targeting and firing; and gun cleaning.

Not just missing, but a missed bullet fired at a shallow angle striking asphalt or concrete is very likely to ricochet and become an uncontrolled, lethal projectile. If you shoot normally you're able to check what's behind the target, so even if you miss you can be confident that no one else is injured.

Interesting, thank you. Too bad there are no years in the wiki article (apart from the reference to Somalia). I heard about something similar from Sandia back in the early 80s when I was in college -- they wanted to incapacitate but not kill spies or other intruders (or the accidental guard) that wandered into Sandia facilities.

I won't argue that it was a no-holds-barred adrenaline fuelled thrill ride, but there's no way that you could perpetrate that amount of carnage and mayhem and not incur a considerable amount of paperwork.

I'm so tired of the "shoot to wound" philosophy. If you shoot to wound, you're shooting to miss, then you're the one who ends up wounded.

It's a pity they lived.

It would have been better if - after they fell - the police started hacking them with machetes while telling them this is what happens when they 'Mess with the West'.

Farking moronic PsOS.

The British Police don't just give guns to every officer. The armed units are the elite and have a huge amount of extra training. That's probably why they took 14 minutes to arrive. There may have only been a couple of armed units (pair of officers in an armed response car) on duty in the whole of London at the time.

But unlike US cops, not all of them emptied their clips and reloaded...

I like how the guy filming has a 300 foot wide-shot and still manages to get half the action outside of the frame. To his credit though, he wasn't turning the camera sideways, shaking uncontrollably and dropping F bombs like every American "found footage" POS that gets uploaded.
 
2013-05-30 07:20:24 AM
Seems like it's starting to go to shiat over there my UK brothers. I'm surprised in this day and age you're typical officer isn't armed. That you have to wait for "armed" police to arrive.
