Groin attacks dont work afterall.....
After training tonight, I happened to catch a show on the science channel about body armor, and it discussed the progession of bullet proof vests.
One officer told her story of how her vest saved her life.
Her name was Marlene Loos of Suffolk Police Dept, and her assailant was Michael Collins of west Iceland. She explained the situation as she answered a call by herself. Her assailant, pretending to be deaf, slowly walked towards her and tackled her to the ground and started beating on her. After a few seconds, he tried to go for her gun. She explained that she grabbed a "sensitive area" of his body and it had absolutly NO EFFECT in her exact words. He proceeded to remove her gun and fire a shot point blank into her chest.
Fortunately, her vest saved her life and she made a 100% recovery, but I believe this is an important testemant by a police officer to the ineffectiveness of groin attacks in a life or death situation.
The show is called "Body Armor" and was aired on the science channel if it happens to come up again and anyone wants to see it.
