During high stress events such as gunfights, the human body is thrown into a survival state.
Check it out:
Last month, Dallas Police Chief David Brown issued a new policy, which gives officers involved in a shooting access to any videos of the incident and requires officers involved in the shootings to wait 72 before giving a statement to investigators.
The new policy has caused some to bristle, claiming the it will allow officers to close ranks in the thin blue line, thereby giving them time to make excuses or otherwise cover up actions in what may be a potentially unjustified shooting.
With over 25 years of experience in combative training for numerous federal agencies and private groups, I am intimately familiar with the hazards of giving testimony after a high stress critical incident, and I would like to share with you why I think this new policy is reasonable, not only for the police, but for every person who carries or intends to carry a firearm for personal protection.
