Some random comments on reddit about Members of the German federal police demonstrate their skills during a presentation of the new counterterrorism unit near Berlin on December 16, 2015. [3500x1989]
- The problem isnt the equipment its the training and how they use them
- Nah, it's how it looks. US police use those armored vehicles for hostage rescues, not traffic stops. They use the tactical gear for high risk warrant services, not regular 911 calls. People just whine about them because they are scary looking.
- What skill are they demonstrating in the photo?
- Nothing says that they are illustrating it in the photo. They're illustrating it during the demonstration, the photo is of the demonstration.
- What's with the red, green and white glowsticks?
- They may use them to mark rooms as they clear them. For instance, in an active shooter situation, maybe they'll leave a red outside the door to indicate a deceased victim inside... or maybe a green to indicate a device that needs the attention of the bomb squad. This way, after the shooter is dealt with, the auxiliary teams can come in and assist with the secondary missions.
- During an active shooter event, I'm not concerned with pulling security on a room with a potential device, and I'm not too concerned with someone coming behind me and moving a light stick. I'm advancing towards the sound of the killing, and dropping light sticks if I see devices. At least that's what I've been trained to do.
- We use them for active shooter stuff. When you are trying to clear a building with three people, you need something to use to mark locations when back-up shows up.
- They want a glowing review of their demonstration.
- What do they have tucked into the epaulettes on their left shoulders?
- Tourniquet. Read more comments
