External Resources

There are a ton of resources that are available to enhance your knowledge about use of force and the realities of violence. Here are some resources that I’ve found particularly illuminating.

Switched Playlist

This is a great series where civilians are put into scenarios that police have had to deal with – very informative.

FPF – Street Encounter Playlist

I took John’s Street Encounter Skills and Tactics class – it’s a good one if you get the chance. Here’s a YouTube playlist with a lot of useful information – I particularly found the ones showing how quickly a stab wound can cause someone to bleed out. As well seeing people getting shot numerous times, falling over and then getting back up a few minutes later – stuff to know when trying to justify use of force decisions.
