    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    The first video did not look that impressive imo. The ISR stuff has always looked good to me...

    Edited to add: ISR is what RBSD should look like. More variables added to an Alive training enviroment.

    You're half right.

    Virtually every law enforcement agency works within a use of force continuum. While it is the aim of police officers to try to use the least amount of force necessary, more often than not, it doesn't happen that way.

    Also, in case you weren't aware, a large portion of individuals that I have to deal with on a regular basis are combative in nature. Ideally, I'd like to be able to take a hostile down without having to hurt him too badly. However, a situation can escalate in mere nanoseconds, which means that when my suspect has lost his temper, the fight is on - which means I need to end that fight as fast as possible using all the tools at my disposal.

    The only caveat to that is that, at the end of the day, I need to be able to justify my actions and be able to articulate them in court and in an inquiry.

    But to say that law enforcement is not concerned with learning and using "ass kicking" techniques is highly false.
