    I haven't commented on an article in quite some time now. Also I am not second guessing any training decision. But as an LEO that was on duty when a plain clothes Officer (on duty) was fatally shot by two uniformed Officers after apprehending a suspect, this needs to be re-evaluated...ESPECIALLY when it involves the news media...trust me guys they are NOT your friends !!! I have trained Officers from several states for over 20 yrs.
    Story : Officers conduct a "botched" training exercise that put citizens and several news employees in jeopardy........ " NEWS AND FILM AT NINE "

    This reminds me of one of those "What Would You Do" episodes where they wanted to see the reaction of strangers coming across a guy trying to take away a screaming kid that is saying that she doesn't know him. This guy almost got beat up by two people if it wasn't for camera crew, him, and the child saying that it's alright.

    Also, didn't this news reporter look like some guy the news crew pulled off the street and ask if he wanted to give reporting a try?

    I used to work for a boss who was a publicity hound. My happiest day on the job was the day he left.

    This is Training-101 and is what happens when people outisde of a training unit conduct scenario exercises not knowing all that needs to be addressed before conducting any exercise especailly in a public place...

    Unbelievable, for glitz and glamor somebody could have been seriously hurt. The "brass" responsible for this needs a kick in the pants hard enough to clear their thinking processes. Or a little vacation-unpaid as it were
