We DO NOT pass judgement on Law Enforcement Officers. We let the public (YOU) determine if their actions were JUSTIFIED or WRONGFUL use of force. Comment below and let us know!

The purpose of these videos should be used for analysis and case studies to better train current/future Law Enforcement Officers to deescalate situations and find alternative solutions before they become violent or deadly. In addition, we hope to educate people on how to interact with police officers by learning from the mistakes of others.

This Video is intended for Educational purposes.
