Video: Denver police active-shooter clip the bloodiest public-service footage ever?

Categories: Videos

Video below.
We tend to think of videos made by public agencies as staid, safe and dull. Not so the latest clip from the Denver Police Department showing law enforcers simulating an active shooter situation in a building at the old University Hospital site. The footage includes gunshots, explosions, hysterical screaming, open wounds, draining blood and bodies everywhere, supplemented by looks behind the scenes and one participant's analysis of what officers did wrong. The result may be the first public-service video that's not safe for work. See it below.

Hmm if it took training for cops to realize they aren't just there to shoot people then i guess it's a good thing they are doing training.

That Guardian list is outdated. We now know the IRS deliberately targeted conservative donors and organizations for audit and denial of tax-exempt status. Then they claim to have just lost emails related to the incidents. :poof:

Looks like some pretty good training for our first responders! The more realistic and stressful we can make training for these guys the better they will perform in a real situation. I'm glad to see these preparations being made.

I'm sorry, what do you mean by display something for preparing for an event?

That's usually how I deal with people who don't do what they're told.... it's just nice to see after several police shootings where the philosophy for that course of action comes from...." training".....

WOW... he said " nobody is going to kill you as long as you do what your told....." Who? The shooter? Or anyone in general.....

Good gracious...looks like someone learned a new word over the weekend. Ridiculous. Denver is in the hot seat so frequently they need to display something for preparing for an event. You scream fascism when you find yourself relying on their assistance.

Training could not be bloody enough. Nothing can prepare us for what some cretins do.

Everything is fascism. Active shooter training? Fascism. Denver Cruisers Pictures? Fascism. Happy-hour half priced drinks and apps at Chilis? Oh you better believe that's fascism.

....How the fuck can somebody read the mind of another person and know when they are going to shoot somebody, dumbass? That's not at all what their job is.

...You do realize they are actively changing the culture of SWAT to go inside buildings now, right? Hence, ya know, the exercise that's videotaped here..

I'm assuming this is somehow the anti-police propaganda to follow up the Red Rocks article that argued against police searches? Or the supplemental security proposal?

And I don't consider those pigs to be human, they are obedient mutts that do what they are told, and not what is right.

Chris Lewis

No it's that they are retroactive, they are never there when the crime is happening.

Its been the same since Colombine .......this would never happen because they stay outside and spectate while people inside bleed out. Wouldnt want to risk any high trained officers in a dangerous situation. WORTHLESS !!!!

All this so they can excuse themselves when they trample our rights. Keep the people scared!

Worthless cops..because the police are no longer human and have become ubiquitous, right?

Chris Lewis

Just more proof that's cops can't prevent mass shootings, they can only clean them up after. Worthless cops

These men are trigger happy terrorists masquerading as saviors. You'll notice that AFTER 9/11, police ramped up their violence and aggression against their own people 100 fold and started treating us all like the people they claimed to be protecting us from. The Middle Eastern nut-jobs could not have found better 'partners' to carry out their goal of terrorism than they did with the American police. Let's face it: Al-Qaeda is not breaking into your home at 3am, murdering your dog, and terrorizing your wife and children....These guys are. Wake up, people....
