Video- Why Do Cops Shoot Unarmed People?
A good video explaining the realities involved. by Bob Owens and posted on BearingArms.com YouTuber "possumpopper89" has crafted a 6-minute video that does a fairly good job of explaining why law enforcement officers (and some "regular Joe" citizens with defensive firearms training) sometimes shoot unarmed people.People who lack this kind of training (which is probably close to 95% of the general population) hold the mistaken belief that officers wait until they see and identify a weapon in a suspect's hand before deciding to open fire.That is simply not the case much of the time. In many instances, it isn't possible to visually identify a weapon due to lighting conditions or attempts by dangerous criminals to conceal a weapon even as they bring them into play.The simply fact of the matter is that you can never react as fast as the other person acts. It requires you to observe the other person's actions, orient (analyze and synthesize the incoming data through the lens past experiences, training, culture, and genetic filters), decide on a response, and then act to carry out that decision.This observe-orient-decide-act process then feeds into the next, as you re-observe, re-orient, make a new decision, and the proceed to your next action. It's a constant series of actions that occurs during your waking hours, first described by U.S. Air Force Col. John Boyd, and it's universally known as the OODA loop.It's that second O, "orient" that explains

Video- Dr. Bill Lewinski: The Lewinski Lecture (Part 1)
The Lewinski Lecture Series (2013)The Lewinski Lecture Series was developed by the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences at Minnesota State University, Mankato, to recognize the contribution of Dr. Bill Lewinski and Force Science to a revolutionary, increased understanding of the myriad human performance elements that play a critical, often life-changing role in the high stress, rapidly unfolding encounters in which police professionals are often engaged. Dr. Bill Lewinski was invited to present the inaugural lecture in the Series. upcoming years, others who have made significant contributions in research to the advancement of law enforcement will be invited to present at this annual event.NEW RESEARCH DEVELOPMENTS AT FORCE SCIENCEThe ultimate mission of Force Science is to advance performance and decision making in law enforcement.In the police world the primary information we acquire about conflicts, with rare exception, such as LAPD's use of force study in the 1990's, is statistical, such as the distance between the officer and subject, number of rounds fired, etc. We need to delve much deeper into the dynamics of these encounters if we are to truly understand them.For over two decades, Force Science has been doing just that by conducting research into the human dynamics of high stress police encounters involving the use of force. Initially this work sought to define the nature of the assaults, and officers' responses, movements and reaction
