My first thoughts as I watched the video from start to finish were about the dangers our police officers face on a daily basis. My second thought was a flashback to Nam because the heavy breathing of the officers whose cameras were recording was like calling up the experience of close quarter combat for me. I cannot explain or describe it but the vide records it.

As for the 75 foot shot, I certainly was not luck. It was a shot by an officer who knew his weapon and how to use it. In combat 75 yard pistol shots are not uncommon. Good hits are much less common. The officer had a high level of skill obviousl6 through practice.

Finally, I felt a little pang for the officer and his wife. When you shoot someone you pay a personal price and when you tell your wife that you had to shoot someone she pays a personal price. I have nothing but praise for both of them.
