"Thing to say as a mayor Because you can i. I'm almost speechless that she made this comment. What's going on a lawyer. But i would bring if i'm a lawyer. I'm going to bring this this. And this and this now because he actually violent the policy procedure. But because you know what senator to blow up and yes we're already on dealing with the george floyd protests and. Here's another incident that's going on i get. It's a bad. look up for law enforcement. You don't want to the ball you wanted to make sure that everybody's peaceful mecom this guy on the alternate to to say peace and probably worked to become completely honest. It probably did work but now you have to take this guy back now. Everybody's gonna be outraged again I said before. And i'll say it again other and my analysis of being a of being a police officer for twenty four years a supervisor for nineteen years being an instructor of use force For a number of years being handcuffed instructor for a number of years My analysis of the of that rashard brooks shooting the use of force. Because i t to us a forest esscalation a use of force and what happens to officers when and if they go through adrenaline rushes and dobson and In even what happens to you. Physiologically fight flight. Responses is off type of things we had to discuss when we're talking about this type of thing. My analysis in even being teased myself. We know what happens to them. Officers don't have to deal with that. We pair officers to win and and we pay them to do their job effectively and efficiently. We're not paying them through to to give up and just run home or go home and a lot of people escape. We're not paying them to do that. We're paying them to do a job. And that's apprehend criminals and or stop the violence and criminality in our neighborhood and so Looking at the facts until taliban circuits breakdown. The video that i did and that you guys can look at it our discussions. I've had. I still maintain that this officer do the right thing. I'm not surprised that he got reinstated. I won't be surprised. He's being He's been arrested for facing felony aggravated felony. Murder charges I don't think he's going to be convicted of any of that. I think that he's going to get off so if anyone's out there going looking at other possibilities guy Getting convicted your don't don't don't this is not the george floyd situation. Someone who's presenting themselves was fought with officers who's taken one taser He's he has demonstrated unfortunately That he has In an pointed at the are at at officer he has demonstrated the capacity for for injury to an officer and Officers took the appropriate amount of justification and justify use of force in order to stop the threatens. That was that had the possibility of being engaged towards. That's my analysis of it Again that tasers detailer was live in was fired and struck the officer In instruct the officer the officer could become incapacitated. He could lose an ai opponent. Approx from the tasers that shoots out in two different directions but one prong goes into the. I takes design if it both pronk stick into come he squeezes. The trigger becomes incapacitated. Then it's it becomes a problem. It becomes a problem in officer can lose his gun and or his life so no one has to take that chance. Police officer so I think that shows a great great incompetence. And i am not happy to say this but but you know as an administrative official we gotta get the things that we're doing straight and right in this is i think that city should embarrassed by by by by what just happened. You know one thing to lose because of Because of the facts of circumstance wants analyzed but to lose it has been reinstated because we rushed to judgment and didn't follow proper procedure due process. And all that. That's got to be a really big stain upon them and you know. Shame on them for that But against to the public out there. Who's watch tonight if you think that this guy's gonna be convicted He's not he's going to get his job back and probably sioux city for wrongful termination. And all this kind stuff. So we'll wait and see but that's just my response to The individual being Being Being reinstated so Anyway there looking for testing you want to become move up the ranks become argentina. captain You having trouble passing these tests.

"Therefore there is no stoppage of them. go going down or stopping to their their accents so that so in may or may not work is my point hepker sprain someone gets pepper sprayed And it may take a few a few moments for if anybody's watch the virginia Lieutenant there it takes a few moments for the pepper spray to acetate to take hold if and while you the officer preparations. She's still stabbing away. Even though she's got stuff in there and she's still sobbing away. Much could still die so you want to take. These are just options these these. These are just options. Obviously it's more complicated than this. You want to take the option that is going to cause that has the greatest degree of stopping the threat. Police officers do not shoot to kill said that again. Please do not shoot to kill. They shoot to stop we. We tasted a stop. We pepper sprayed to stop threats to stop the actions of resistance. That's what our purposes and we want to take the most effective means of stopping that action. So we were a rise to the level of stopping to threat as it is being presented so therefore that is why we are shooting. It was completely justified for the officer to go straight in mmediately to the firearm because the level of force and has all kind of force continuum all this kind of thing. You guys can read about all that kind of stuff. But there's a force continuum there was already at the level of the upon officers arrived already the level of force of the deadly force and therefore the officer has every right aim responsibility to to right and the responsibility to act Accordingly into stop a threat as it as it comes down so Why couldn't you just shoot him. Shoot her anyway Police officers are not trained to the level of navy seals right It's my understanding. I'm never been navy seals. It's my understanding that there is The last day or less big pieces of training needs officers The operators navy seal operators have to do some type ally fire incident Test in which Officers they use live fire in almost or make sure that they don't shoot each other. Police officers aren't trained to that level. We we go through six months average of training six seven months average of training. All of that is not a firearms. Every single day We we don't shoot people in the light. I actually think The officer real was really seem to be very proficient in that if we watched the video and if you go back and watch the video again we can actually see where the officer was pinned against the car The the woman was Was being pentagon's a car teenager whatever. She was being pentagon's car and the other in the in the assailant had a knife and was about to about stabber. And so from that point. I actually think that the officer shot with spot on in order to hit her and not to to To hit the the actual a potential victim there so i think that his name was impeccable. So so again officers are trained to shoot center mass and to stop the threat. We're not trying to shoot guns out of people's hands people in the leg You know shoot mirrors up and and holding in all this other kind of stuff you see on. Tv that's that's just not the way that it is. Most of the times officers are underneath the great d- operating under a great deal of stress. And i think that this officer really handed himself extremely extremely well And in the actions that were justified and necessary in order to complete into. Stop this particular threat. So why couldn't he just de escalate And i couldn't officer deescalate. And because he's only fifteen or sixteen years old. I reports fifteen but i think now we understand was actually sixteen. Why couldn't you just deescalate again. the officer arrived on scene full uniform. They don't stop fighting. We more than likely who issuing commands because we could see his hand up. You know saying you know. Stop whatever we. We don't hear that. But i'm assuming that that's what happened more than likely. They could've seen a police car but they were so enthralled and so engaged what they're doing one person is kicking down person and another one is attempting to stab and there's no stopping you don't have time to de-escalate. This is not something that they're sitting on the porch arguing or parts far away from each other they're close to each other and so therefore there's assault about to take place. Potential lethal deadliest assault enforce is about to take place in. The officer has to respond. We cannot be conflict. The apparent victory that we have with george floyd with derek chauvin in think that all the police work is going to stop the police officers gonna stop using the justify legal legal uses of force despite the age of the victim. Right he doesn't the as where we're in may have been a known according to dispatch records. We have to listen to the tapes and say what what age was but none of that is relevant when it comes to the use of lethal deadly force. One person is about to be stabbed. We have to call people in order to To to help to help with the situation so therefore we call the police in there. That's the reason that they did what they did. And that's the reason why the ability if we want officers to receive navy seal type training so they can shoot the wings off flies and so that they can shoot people in the leg from from you know from five hundred feet away then we have to forget about defunding the police massively in infant massively massively fund police policing and police training. So we can't have it both ways. People want to defend the police. It's a ludicrous idea. We can look to funnel some money into social services. I'm all for that and people are talking about that. But in this particular case we can't fund the police. We had to give them more training. This officer acted and shot with an impeccable. Aim in my estimation considering All that's going on across the country across the nation. He really handled himself. Well it would seen But again is going to be a full investigation. We have to wait for the investigation. So i hope that some questions about deescalation. Use of force use of deadly force. Why couldn't they use tasers pepper spray. Those things are not expedient you have to respond to the level or to a greater level of degree of certainty in greater level of force. The stop the threat in the officer had to stop the threat. The teaser might not have were pepper. Spray may or made out of words and might have taken some time to kick in and people can still be stabbing and it's definitely true that even once shot people can still be stabbing immediately may not immediately fall to the ground. They can still operate for a certain matter. Time so I think in this particular case the officer himself. Well and i i am in no way and even the mayor of the city has come out and said what's viewing the tape and said listen. He's going to stand by the officer. And i think in particular case that judgment and justification is right so ladies and gentlemen let me know you comments and thoughts and You know if you've got any more videos kind of breakdown talk about justice justifications use of force and all that kind of stuff just hit me up emails right here at c. p. l. hunter instagram in twitter. Much love in peace. Police reform is more than just a trending topic. My name is lawrence hunter. I'm a retired police. Captain from the state of connecticut and i've written a new book called police reform. I talk about the evolution of law enforcement here in america and what changes need to be made in order to improve the relationship between police and the communities that they served over the past few months and he's become increasingly more important and more evidence that there's something missing the ride between the police and the communities that they serve so whether you're about defunding. The police are defending the police. If you're blue lives matter or black lives matter. No matter what side of the fence used happened to sit on. Make sure that you pick up your copy of police perform today. Hey everyone to boycott the honda coming out again. Thank you so much for tuning in so much for your love. Inner for your support and a really does not give me any great pleasure to do these types of videos. I really feel. It's it's actually very important to try to get this information out there once again. My podcast as about bridging the divide between the police and the communities that they serve in so sometimes we. We're seeing so many different things going on around the country in. It's not serving law enforcement in in particular. It's not serving the communities that they serve. It's not serving in particular. The black community is not serving many many other communities when his information is going out there in as wrong. It's when it when it is inaccurate and trying to dispel these myths. That's that's the reason that i'm having this discussion in doing this. This podcast while these particular episode. So i came across. This was actually sent to me on instagram. If you're not follow me on instagram. That's l hunter. Cpt just think. Capped lawrence hunter. cpt l. And so i see this from from in the shade room. I'm not trying to show throw shade on them or anything else as we could seat got over one point nine million views as of the recording that i that i have here and so this is i would assume i think it's her name is sunny. Halston she. I assume this is on those talk shows. Good morning america. Or i'm not even sure of what's what's the other one view. I don't even know she's on there but but anyway so she's talking about the comparison taking into custody of of a kyle. Renault house The shooter from last year from the george floyd protests To an how. The police responded in into the columbus. Ohio shooting of mikhail makhaya bryant The tragic incident. That happened there. So i i want. I want to just run through this. And just tell you why she's wrong. This is this is a very very short video. So a plate right now. So you guys can hear it and here we go. Let's compare her to kyle. Rittenhouse video was taken fifteen minutes before rittenhouse allegedly shot and killed two people you know. What officers did he carried in an assault weapon. The video shows. The police shared water with him and thanked him for a his presence. Also after the shooting he was able to leave the scene even though caught on video he walked towards police with his hands up as protesters yelled that he had shocked people. Okay so that's that's that's the end of that particular video. So i wanna talk a little bit about a just just a diamond to the car. Ridden ousting Listen to her. If you can go onto you can google this type of thing the timeline it's on the new york times. Run through the timeline. It's chaotic scene. And the and the on that particular incident cower in nelson's there's multiple gunshot going off people a yelling and screaming at the police and they expect in expected. The police officers to single out their voices and say. Hey that's the shooter. That's the one who shot x y and z when kyle rittenhouse was walking towards the officers. He hasn't hands up and he Was not presenting any type of threat. open carry state In not not anything To be alarming to the officers at that time they then responded to go help the victims was they should have done. They don't see an active shooter at the time. So they go to determine the problems and A and help the victims who were down at that particular time. So we've got to put all this into contact. We've got to be able to put all this in the context. One point nine million people have seen this video whether they agree with her assessment or not. They've seen the video. That's why i wanted to try to address it just to try to get it out there that just because it seems that way or people are viewing these videos. Does it make no or she's giving her analysis. And i believe she's actually a lawyer she's actually She's actually a lawyer I knew i. I've watched her talk about these danger. Ground laws In particular of the trayvon martin case. So why she's giving this analysis. Which she i would assume that she would know far better than i would. Not stand up in a court of law So i wanna talk about this situation of exigent circumstances or emergency situations that officers deal with in went in if they are in. A situation is in an active shooter or active scene. They must respond to the to the threatened with us going on walking past someone or seeing someone walked past. Police officers with the hanso does not present a threat. They're going to go to the threat and they're gonna set the scene and go to the threat which is what they did. In in that particular case they win rendered aid to the victims according to the new york post New york times So so so. That's so that's what that is in the case of Michaela bryant tragic tragic shooting of the sixteen year old girl in columbus ohio. The officers i on this already. The officers respond to the scene. But get out of the car In they see michaela bryan attacking people physically inactivity attacking so once again based on the under threat levels. What are the officers have to do. They have to respond to the threat. And so that's exactly what they did so we can see here from this picture That we can see more kayla. Bryant actively assaulting with a knife in her hand actively assaulting a person who's pinned up against a car another female whose pendant begins car prior to this being this and this is taken for the officers point of view from his body cam Prior to this there was a fight in which another person was fell on the ground By michaela's Force against her another individual. Which can see who shaded out here to the right hand. Side of the screen here is performing a kick in the person who was on the ground. So there's an active fighting situation. The officer assesses. The threat goes to the greatest level of threat and addresses the greatest level of threat. Which is the person with the knife in her hand. Attacking miss Tacking the person on the Pending car and that would be a michaela. Mika a bryant maceio mikhail. i don't mean to disrespect her name. I hope i'm saying so. Don't be taken in by. Missed ho hostels Analysis of this in how they responded to the scene into into that because it's a white versus black thing I've talked about race a number of times show. I'm not afraid to go there into discuss it But we gotta make it fit into the context and let's just not the case here. They went to the most active. Seen active An address of the biggest threat. Same thing kyle. Rittenhouse case i have no love for. I can't believe. I have to make video defending this this that idiots actions but but i'm defending the rule of law. The with the police did and trying to make sure that we try to see if think things through clearly and this is why sometimes Or why why. People you must sit on juries so you get an accurate picture up. A trail of what is going on. Not the filtered noise from media from pundits talking heads who are giving their opinions and not going along with back. These types of videos that miss that is going on internet seeing one point nine million times hoskins continues to stoke the narrative that police are tacking. Black people take by people in the custody. And and all of this type of thing. It's just not true. They're still in america. More white people were killed by. The police are still being killed by the police. So these types of videos. These types of commentary are totally unnecessary. Totally unwarranted a unwarranted totally incorrect totally rocked holy falls and bad for the morale bad for the public relations battle. Police relations bad for a police community relations. And they're just bad They don't help anything. They continue to stoke the fires in the flames of bad and misinformation in incorrect information. So we've got to get the correct information. I'm sure that that the person's on the view can find some police expert out there who can talk about the things that i've just mentioned That they must assess the threaten threat and go to the greatest level of danger at the time and address the threat as is posing here. We can see that. This person who was pinned against a car is in imminent. Danger of being assaulted. Stabbed slashed wounded possibly killed by this night. The officer was right and doing what he did. It may not seem right and may seem unpopular. it may seem like like more like a as blackhawks. How could i say this. I just i just kooning disappoints. No no no. This officer saved this other black woman's life think about that so listen We gotta get this information out there. Once again my cup by podcasts about bridging the divide between the police and the communities that they serve and we do ourselves a disservice when we adhere to and listen to and receive in repeat Incorrect bad wrong information. So ladies and gentlemen. That's that's it for today's episode in much love and peace. Police reform is more than just a trending topic. My name is lawrence center. I'm a retired police. Captain from the state of connecticut and i've written a new book called police perform and i talked about the evolution of law enforcement here in america and what changes need to be made in order to improve the relationship between police and the communities that they served over the past few months it's become increasingly important and more evident that there's something missing arrived between the police and the communities that they serve so whether you're about defunding the police or defending the police. You're bob blue lives matter or black lives matter. No matter what side of the fence us happened. Sit on make sure that you pick up your copy. Police perform today..

I'm really humbled in honored to be here. Let me just start off by just kind of introduced myself I am Lawrence hunter a retired police captain from the city of waterbury. What police department in the waterbury connecticut. I was born in the city of boston. Raised here in the city of waterbury. Where i still reside Don't ask me why. I'm still here but i'm still here And so we called Waterbury affectionately call it the dirty water. I won't get into why we call it that but that's what we call it here So i was a as. I said i was raised here. I went to public schools here. I then joined a police department fairly young age. I was twenty two years old when i joined and then. I excelled to the rank of captain. Anyone who's not familiar with the rank structure of police departments and the military goes from entry level pro bowl officer officer and then the next rank is usually a sergeant. Some police departments have corporals. and in. so we go from sergeant to lieutenant and captain captain in my particular department. I was a division commander. I was the midnight shift commander for quite some time. And i also was over the internal affairs department. We call it. A professional standard was internal affairs as well as the training. That's what it was. I simon finished as returning back to the midnight. Shift as the commander there During my time. I wasn't implicit been biased instructor I talked to defensive tactics Taught human behavior which is essentially psychology to police recruits as well as to members. Who are already department In fact he police department has just Re asked me to come back and teach some more classes due to what we're talking about a little bit due to some of the programs or or situations that are going on around the country. The state of connecticut has instituted for new classes. That are mandatory. I believe i do your twenty two but of course you know when he said he's getting ahead of it now in one of the There's four classes one is anti-racism class and these for police recruits. Who are going to be on to police academy anti-racism Policing in historical context in the civil rights movement. That's just one class history of policing in civil rights movement anti racism and procedural justice in. There's another class i forget. I'm going to be teaching procedural justice and touch these in a little bit each will justice in a history class so upon my retirement i started a business called elevates consulting services where i do consulting bump with police officers were going to take a promotional exams. Anyone who wants to become a police. Officer i will work with you are or were them who want to become police officers I'm also teaching leadership supervision principles diversity inclusion Until those are just a little bit of my expertise. I'm leaving some things out. But that's just a little bit of what. I what i've done in what i'm doing today. I currently hosts a podcast called captain hunters podcast where i focus on bridging the divide between the police and the community that they serve and so a really really has become a passionate about and how i started this particular consulting agency in the podcast and i currently host is because i looked around and saw that many african americans when i told him that i was a police officer. You either get. Oh hey that's great or you get You know that's an odd you know. Do you get that kind of negative. Look or they some people just did not want to be around you at all as an officer. So that really kinda troubled me so i did my own journey and Into history of policing in my own research is what i meant. I in my journey into the history policing you know why. The african-american community in particular has such a problem with with. What's going on in so once. I started to look into things I don't know of anyone will remember back in the nineteen nineties in one thousand nine hundred ninety seven nine in particular were two incidents in new york. It was the ad moore abner louima situation and the advocate. The other young man's name but they were both brutalized by the police. Indoor killed So when when that happened I i was a young officer myself. I came out nineteen ninety five but became police officer night in two years and we had nine ninety seven. I was dealing with the situation and then two years later ninety nine and dealt with another situation and in connecticut in new york connecticut in new york city are fairly. You're fairly close in proximity. So a lotta people. Were calling me up and ask me. You know what's up with this. How come the police are doing this type of thing do you know. Why do you guys doing this. And you know there's always this this need to say that you guys it's all of you guys are guys are all hiding behind this blue wall blueshield and so that was very troubling to me. Because i know that. I wasn't one of those people who are doing that. A shame As you mentioned. Mr miss wheatley that when There's there's bad so-called apples in every profession. there's a teachers who right now are unfortunately sleep. Sleep their students but no one is blaming all teachers type of there's politicians who are on the take blame upon. Well maybe some of us are blaming..
