In Reply to: I still don't know who those 19 officers were, and if they were adequately posted by suited up with body armor, etc. Does anyone know? I read that - sm on Wed, Jun 01 2022 at 11:50 AM CDT:
: they eventually went into the room only after another officer showed up with a ballistic shield and they followed that officer into the room behind that shield.
: I'm not willing to call them "cowards" until I know more about how they were equipped. I don't think we expect LE officers to go on suicide missions, and I'm not sure how many of us, if push came to shove, would actually be willing to bust into a room with a shooter with an AR-15 if we had only a handgun, no body armor, no helmet. Talk is cheap, and it's easy to call someone a coward, but until you're actually faced with that situation I'm not sure any of us really knows how we would react.
