PostSubject: Murphy's Laws of Police Operations   Sun Aug 26, 2012 12:05 pm

I am not posting this to ridicule the peace officers of our country. Their jobs are highly stressfull and even though they really need to practice shooting more in stressful situations to hopefully stop this kind of miscue on their part. My reason is to bring to attention that nothing is being said by the idiot mayor of new yuk city. He has much to say about other shooting from every corner of this country but when it comes to his people nothing is said. I hope that the writers from the NRA and other organizations take this and run with it.

Murphy's Laws of Police Operations


By Donald Sensing
Nine New Yorkers shot by cops

Years and years ago, an instructor at the JFK Special Warfare Center at Ft Bragg put together a little instructional chart called, "Murphy's Laws of Combat." It went viral throughout the Army, insofar as something can could have gone viral in the dark ages before Youtube or even email. One iteration is here.

The original Murphy's Law, of course, is, "If something can go wrong, it will." And so the MLOC include such gems of wisdom as,

"If the enemy can't get in, you can't get out."
"The enemy attacks only when you're not yet ready."

These kind of aphorisms were going around a long time before Ft Bragg was even founded. One of my favorites that I drummed into my troops was scripted by Carl von Clausewitz almost 200 years ago: "In war, everything is simple. But even the simplest things are very difficult."

And so we come to the day after the sad day when a man in New York sought and achieved vengeance against the man who terminated him from his job a year ago. The murderer, Jeffrey Johnson, stood on the sidewalk outside his former place of employment and confronted his former boss (or coworker), Steve Ercolino, whom Johnson shot in the head three times.

Then Johnson bagged his pistol and walked away. Alerted by a bystander, two police officers pursued Johnson. According to reports, Johnson made motions with his pistol that the officers perceived as threatening them, so they fired at Johnson 16 times. Seven of those bullets hit Johnson, killing him.

And the other nine bullets hit New Yorkers who were in the line of fire, fortunately killing none. As Glenn observes,


I’m not saying they did the wrong thing, because I don’t think they did. I’m just saying that if it had been a private citizen, rather than a pair of government employees with government guns, this would be treated very differently by Bloomberg and the press.
That's true, of course. And like Glenn, I am not finding fault with the officers for shooting Johnson. But 16 shots from 10 feet away? And they miss more than half?

I carried a pistol for a long time in the Army but I never had to gunfight with it. But just time spent in competitive pistol shoots was quite enough to teach me that accurate pistoleering is difficult. I always qualified expert, but no shot can be taken for granted. Under stress, heart rate elevated, moving target, fear factored in - very hard to shoot well.

I don't know what the cops could have done except engage Johnson when they believed he was about to shoot at them. I guess I would have, too. But over and over, I come back to this: 16 shots from 10 feet away? And they miss more than half?

And so my beginning list of Murphy's Law of Police Operations:

1. Police carry guns to defend themselves, not you.

2. Cops are not skilled shooters. If you see a police officer with a drawn gun, run as far as you can as rapidly as you can. (Actually, I did find myself in that situation once, and I did exactly that.)

3. Police bullets are just as happy to kill you as the bad guy.

Sadly this is so true. Most officers choke up and cannot hit the broad side of a barn when the stress hits! I have been there and can speak from first hand experience. There is nothing to prepare you for the stressful situation when you cannot even remember whether you fired a round or not! Much less what you hit!!! LMAO!!

Let me add one more thing! Most officers do a fairly good job of qualifying with their departments at least once or twice a year. However, it is not the same when under the stress of a situation. Each individual officer handles that differently. No two officers react the same under stress and never will. The stress adds another dimension that cannot be duplicated with the same exact adrenalin rush and blood pressure reactions! You can come close but when bullets are being returned in your direction there is nothing else on the face of the earth that can simulate that and the stress associated. It is called playing for keeps! TWIT!!!

I realize this, but do you think if they were constantly drilled in combat situations instead of stand on a firing line and putting holes in paper? I think I know your answer. And by no means am I condemning the LEO"s.

I do not condemn them either because I was one and still support them! However, there are some problems and they need to be addressed in each department to better prepare each individual officer to handle stress situations. There is no sure-fire method to do this but the more familiar they become the better they react.

This was my intent when posting this. It seems that if you run the largest city in the free world, and have a police department that has the duty to protect so many residents, workers and tourists from terrorists that view your city as the big prize, then you should prepare your people to react in the most professional manner. Something that Mayor bloombag and Commissioner Kelly have been derelict in doing.

Thank you, but I was hoping that someone like Wayne LaPierre was the one that posed the comment.
