Observe and evaluate

Our local wanna-be-military deputies.
Somebody oughta explain to these clowns that woodland camo in an urban environment looks fucking stupid. If they want to play Soldier Boy, they should've joined the military.
But what I'm noticing is no face protection to speak of, no protection whatsover below the waist and so much gear and bullshit hanging off their vests that it'll be damned near impossible to move quietly or quickly.

Agree with you, even mall ninjas laugh at those fuckers.
I bet they were making a big drug bust, probably a teen selling a couple five dollar blunts.

Never aim at the head or torso at LEO any more, it's strictly groin, legs and feet. Now I know you high speed pistol and rifle shots are gonna call BS, so let's look at it tactically. Probably your eventual encounter with SWAT will be the distance between the street and the perimeter around your house. You will be in total defensive posit and the only way out is thru them. After the first shot, pandemonium will ensue... you must put up a constant and lethal punch.
This is why 12 gauge magnum "00" buckshot is the only readily available ordnance to most folks. LEO will go to over, under or around barricade firing posits until they think it is safe to assault you. THIS is the moment to inflict maximum battle damage, reel the enemy into cover and casevac and to open your NARROW window of escape."00" buckshot will effectively and seriously wound and eliminate your foe if you concentrate your fires on exposed lower body. The buckshot is also heavy enough to penetrate most cover used in a typical residence. Also, when the enemy is on concrete or pavement they will usually hide behind a vehicle door, etc. Aim at the pavement directly in front of their feet or knees, richocheting or deflecting the buckshot directly into them making them also severely wounded casualty that others to stop fighting and render first aid, thus exposing them to additional withering fire. In a generic close quarter combat situ, this I think would be average joe's best bet. Good Luck, you'll need it...

They wouldn't make it out of the sandbox in SF, methinks.

And just as *they* "Observe and Report", so do we......

A little P.S. to my earlier comment about "00" buckshot. One absolute sure fire way to immediately cause catastrophic failure and inoperability to any "UNARMORED" vehicle whether parked or in hot pursuit.
Aim your "one" shot of buck JUST BARELY ABOVE THE FRONT BUMPER, DIRECTLY INTO THE GRILLE, and move on to your next tactical shot. You will have (1) destroyed the transmission oil cooler,(2) destroyed the evaporator core and most importantly, the radiator,(3)with any luck you will also have bent the fuck out of the radiator fan back into the serpentine belt pulleys causing it to fail, thus causing immediate loss of power steering.
If you had happened to use slugs or sabot slugs, all three things would have happened anyway, but there would have been a better than 50% chance of also penetrating the engine block with immediate cat failure. Enjoy the keystone cop antics in your brand new oil slick behind the steaming heap of GETSOME you just created!

I see crotch armor. The flap that hangs down is Kevlar to protect the groin.

Don't forget the $600 eotech's paid for with your tax dollars (or the seized property of your neighbor).

"Crotch" kevlar won't stop a slug, and even with oo or 000 buck, the blow to their tiny gonads will still hurt, and hopefully you will penetrate their femoral arteries, which will cause them to bleed out within minutes. It is very difficult to get a good tourniquet high enough on the leg to stop them from bleeding out.

As I have written many times over the years, the psychological factor of knowing they will be targeted thusly should have a significant effect, as well. Are you paying attention, JBT's?
