I read the Chief's comments at the press conference, he mentioned that people not in LE don't have the knowledge to properly opine on this situation. I do and this is all kinds of soup sandwich.

    Also, if one of my guys canceled a backup with the details provided, they would be looking at a letter of reprimand, at the very least. We would send at least two officers and notify a supervisor. Was there a shooting or barricade going on that they couldn't spare the other officers? Nope, they were all available to show up after the shooting. These kinds of calls need to be prioritized and responded to like the high-liability events they are.
    Yeah, our policy would mandate a supervisor respond, as well as CIT trained officers. Tasers would not (and likely won't be for years) be an option for us....just CTS Supersocks and 40mm. Or batons and OC. I would not like to imagine this incident occurring in California after today....especially in my city.

    LAPD OIS, one of the officers is carrying a 3rd gen S&W. Around 8:30 in the video, does the officer thumb cock his pistol?

    You can also hear what sounds like him chomping on gum. Almost like he had too much time on his hands combined with too much adrenaline.

    I would suspect LAPD’s DA/SA course teaches not to do this.


    Overall I think he did a good job considering what just happened, but the thumb cocking would need to be addressed.
