    Militarization of Police.

    Same here, paramedics in our region seem to err more on the side of caution and request police more often than not, they won't even go to welfare checks unless Police are already on scene and there is a patient, otherwise they wont even be dispatched.

    CFAT Officer score

    Anything is possible. When I wrote mine in 2010, they said I qualified for Pilot.

    Militarization of Police.

    Other cities in the US should strap themselves in, because I think we're going to see a lot of this.

    Militarization of Police.

    I think most of us know the answer to this.  :2c: Anyone remember this shooting? Where they shot a guy in the subway for "walking between train cars"? Any of you actually see any of this in the news; if so was it for more than a day? Did those officers lose their jobs for attempted murder...

    Militarization of Police.

    Officer who shot Rayshard Brooks charged with felony murder after suspect resisted arrest during a DUI stop, fought with both officers, stole a tazer, and firing said tazer at the officer...

    Militarization of Police.

    8 calls in 3 years is not bad, for that population..that's a lot. Imagine if uniformed officers turned up for those tactical calls, you'd probably have 8 dead people due to lack of training. You're obviously in favor of defunding, that much is clear. I just hope if specialist units are defunded...

    I've posted this before and I'll post it again, my replies are basically the same as his. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ymznwY2kbEU

    Militarization of Police.

    I am aware of that, I meant that there would be no riot squads anywhere. Why do the job when you get fired for doing it? First riot, then your other specialist teams who will now have to step up and perform those duties.. Now what happens when those units are already resigning from their...

    Militarization of Police.

    That sets a difficult precedent. You'll have more than that PS's riot squad quitting their duties, it'll be country wide. The unit responsible for maintaining public order can't maintain public order, or they'll get fired.  ::)

    Militarization of Police.

    The riot police stopping a 70 year old man from interfering with their duties is the same as them stopping a 20 something year old man doing the same thing. The difference is the 70 year old man hit his head on the ground, so that's newsworthy. Imagine walking towards a riot squad, whose main...

    Militarization of Police.

    Another example of why you should be wary of 10 second video clips without context...notice the knife coming loose after the second kick.. https://globalnews.ca/news/7059283/winnipeg-police-to-address-video-showing-officer-kicking-man-on-the-ground/ The "expert" at the end had me chuckling.

    Port Inspection Diver

    Anyone who's completed the PID course able to give me a heads up on what to expect? I have the Combat Eng DP1 to go off of for confirmation of combat knowledge amount.. as far as I've seen they do the ship's team diver course and then continue on after that for more training? PT wise, same as...

    Review sought after officer kills BC woman in New Brunswick

    Review sought after officer kills BC woman in New Brunswick

    From that video.. "Why couldn't they have used a tazer on her?" This I actually applaud the officer for not going for, because the chance of a tazer landing on a moving target, both prongs landing, and having it penetrate clothing is slim to none. I've seen some pretty accurate tazer shots on...

    Racism in Canada (split from A Deeply Fractured US)

    A distinguishable uniform, matching arm bands, burning books, beating you and threatening you if you have a differing opinion.. includes both fascists and, ironically, the antifa.

    A Deeply Fractured US

    I mean, up until JT forced the latest gun ban, anyone in Canada with a license could own a .50 cal as well. Keep in mind that the gun laws in the states are a LOT more lax than ours, so yeah it might look bad optics wise that the police have decked out m4's and gucci tac gear..but when the guy...

    A Deeply Fractured US

    Ill leave this here: https://youtu.be/ymznwY2kbEU Ex-SWAT and military member in the US breaks down "defund the police" and that weird infographic thats been circulating around..touches on a lot of what people here are talking about..escalation and so forth.

    A Deeply Fractured US

    Officers on the road that are scheduled to have either a C8 or a 870 don't look any different than other police officers, other than the fact they have access to that weapon (usually 1 of each per city). In the states I have seen officers pull out helmets and other misc stuff from their trunks...

    A Deeply Fractured US

    Just to clarify - it's an armored response vehicle that our tac team uses for armed and barricaded people, basically rolling cover. I should have mentioned it's for the tactical guys only, the beat guys aren't rolling around in ARV's  :rofl:

    Review sought after officer kills BC woman in New Brunswick

    SIU investigations / misconduct are completely different than a woman accusing an officer of sexually assaulting her and being able to check the camera and immediately see that her whole story is fake - and in full context..not a 5 second snippet of "blue man bad", as an example. Especially if...
