Swager, I attended a presentation with Officer Davis today. The department and other first responders are well aware that the shooting is typically over by the time they get there. What if it isn't? There is nothing wrong with this photo.

The school board needs to let them whenever they want, whenever they can inside that school anytime they need to train actively.

I admire and respect each of these officers for their commitment to this and those words are not enough.

Mobile Military Operations on Urban Terrain. I remember that training and how quickly we threw that training out the door when it came to our schools. It's an overkill of training.

If Panezott is as smart as I believe he is...he will NEVER permit MOUT training. They are street cops Swager in a small department. Aftermath and liability is an ugly reality after a school shooting.

There is nothing wrong with that photo. We don't know the scenario. Davis is sweeping and he knows his next entry door and/or his target...look at his eyes. Don't Monday night quarterback what you don't see Swager.

Confidence, ability to adapt and overcome and learn the layout of that school and it drilled into their heads is all they need to eliminate that threat. There is no perfect plan or solution.

Too bad the trainers don't know MOUT. There are many things wrong with the photo. A pencil would be a better tool as experience shows the shooters have done their deed and shot themselves before anyone gets in range. I've trained Mout in schools. The building favors the first one inside, not the responder.
