Imagine being stuck in traffic, and if you live in Florida, that is your life. You find yourself surrounded by police, who are hiding behind the car you and your children are in, as they use you, your children and the paper-thin skin of your car as a bullet shield for an insane assault on a hijacked UPS truck.
It would be one thing if the truck were filled with Amazon Christmas gifts, but Amazon uses Fed Ex and we are 10 days early for that. All the moronic hijackers would get is essentially junk and little else.
The kicker is this, police had been following the hijacked truck from Coral Gables to Miramar, a truck with the side door totally open and the two hijackers easy prey.
The primary job of police was to save the driver. Their way of doing it?
I think we will find that police immediately killed the hostage. They didn’t wait for a negotiator or, as is standard procedure in felony arrests, for the vehicle to clear traffic and be isolated.
But then, this is a police department trained by Israeli “commando” contractors whose wartime experience is limited to shooting demonstrators and sniping at children from concentration camp towers, à la Schindler’s List.
In the process, police got at least one motorist killed as well.
Watch the video, feel the burn of outrage and pure cowardice.
For those of you interested, from an expert at such things, and if it had been proven absolutely necessary to proceed with this, which was NOT the case…
The rear of the truck would be approached using the blindspot, but also by distracting the hijackers from the front. Then police using a flashbang, riot shields and deployed smoke would hit both sides using non-lethal force.
The riot shields would possibly protect other drivers, who should have been carefully evacuated long before any of this happened.
Watch any TV show, maybe S.W.A.T and see it done every week.
If police were trained watching TV, the way it used to be done, rather than by fake Israeli amateurs, we might not have so much cop-riot mayhem.
