Most intimidating police uniforms
According to the Facebook message, the suspect was planning on “burning” Westcott, who promptly called the Tampa Bay police and reported the plot.According to the , the investigating officers responding to Westcott’s call had a simple message for him: “If anyone breaks into this house, grab your gun and shoot to kill.” Around pm on May 27th, the intruders arrived.
They used a semi-automatic shotgun and handgun to shoot down the 29-year-old motorcycle mechanic. The sight in August of police in camouflage gear, backed up by armoured vehicles and brandishing assault rifles, was a reminder that some American police departments have recently acquired U. Mexican and Indian riot police follow defined escalation protocols that go from verbal warnings to physical constraint, tear gas, water cannon or pepper spray, rubber bullets or baton rounds, and then use of firearms. police are under pressure not only for the killing of an unarmed teenager in Ferguson, Missouri - for which a grand jury decided yesterday not to indict the officer - but also for the military-style response to the sometimes violent protests that followed. Afghanistan's police, often themselves the target of armed attacks, are officially authorised to respond with weapons 'and explosives', albeit only after other methods have failed, and no fewer than six warnings have been issued.Rather they were members of the Tampa Bay Police Department’s SWAT team, which was executing a search warrant on suspicion that Westcott and his partner were marijuana dealers.They had been tipped off by a confidential informant, whom they drove to Westcott’s home four times between February and May to purchase small amounts of marijuana, at $20-$60 a pop.During the course of the experiment, the researcher wore either ordinary casual clothing, milk delivery apparel or a gray police-style uniform with a badge but no weapons.
Only when the researcher wore the police-style uniform did people consistently cooperate and obey the order.
One night last fall, he discovered via Facebook that a friend of a friend was planning with some co-conspirators to break in to his home.
They were intent on stealing Wescott’s handgun and a couple of TV sets.
Like Mel Gibson’s blue faced warriors or the fur covered, beardy viking hoard.
If you’re going into battle you want the enemy to gaze across at your line of infantry and think “these guys look like the real deal”.
Malaysia's Federal Reserve Unit, the main riot force, is permitted to use firearms only when protesters are using them, but it is in a fortunate position.
