    I'm very impressed with how he has handled these briefings.

    This post adds nothing to the conversation, and I find it inappropriate given the serious tone of this thread.

    The Chief of Police did it a number of times as well. Get over it. Most everyone does it.

    What was the deal last night? Thursday was the busiest night in my law enforcement career and everyone I have talked to was busy as well. I was already thinking about how crazy it had been even before I heard about the shootings on Colorado.

    Thank you to all the LEO's and rescue personnel on the scene.

    I am perplexed as to how the shooter was captured and why he gave up without a fight after unleashing such carnage. I'm glad he didn't turn the gun on the LEO's who detained him.

    What a tragedy. My thoughts are with the victims and their families.

    At the same time, listening to the radio traffic and reading the accounts makes me unbelievably proud to work in the same state and metro area as the officers who responded to the call. What an incredibly focused, calm and collected group of professionals. When **** goes down in my jurisdiction, I feel better knowing that they (with Cochese front and center) will be enroute Mach 2.

    Cochese, I have seen similar scenes while in the military and it's affected me to this day. I don't have to tell you to not bottle it in..

    God Bless.

    Late to the thread.

    Prayers for the victims.

    Thanks and prayers for the responders.

    Cheese, if any of us can help in the smallest way, PM, or JBT private forum.

    Respectfully,

    Does anyone know if it was announced on the PD radio when the shooter was taken into custody? Listened to it, but may have missed it.

    Late to the thread as well. My thoughts are with the victims and families; especially with all the first responders. :patriot:

    As an aside. We are issued respirators which the majority of my co-workers leave in their locker. I am one of the few that carry it in my car every day (in a seperate kit bag along with my tac vest and helmet to go with my patrol carbine).

    Metro cops:

    Good work.

    When they sounded the bugle, you came charging just like heroes should. You delivered big time. My hat is off to you for taking the turd alive.

    If you need anything at all, let me know. PM if you like. I'm here, and proud of you guys up there. Colorado has had its *** kicked all year, and we are still swinging!

    Dude, I'm glad you got to **** this one out. You didn't deserve two crap sammiches that close together. We had a debrief and I feel much better. Listening to Metallix tonight to help the shift along!

    Guilty as charged. I changed to B-King 14 for the K9 search on a mutual aid channel that was probably not picked up on most of these radio recordings when I teamed up with a handler.

    I worked hand in hand with Aurora Fire personnel for over an hour, triaging folks with masive injuries. Firemen and medics on scene were HEREOES and went above and beyond, considering the hot scene nature of the call. I was in the process of being assigned as a secondary entry team of officers who are crossed trained as EMTs or Paramedics when I got several patients brought to me at an engine and got busy.

    AFD was DOIN WORK last night. Heroes.

    Faceplant, :patriot:

    I'll go ahead and admit this now because it is important. Murphy is alive and well.

    I was at the PD tearing the car battery out of my 08 CVPI (137,517 miles) as it had crapped out on me at the beginning of shift. I was pulling a battery out of another car deadlined at the PD when this crap was aired. I dropped what I had in the fleet lot and vaulted into a spare car with NO EQUIPMENT other than what I had on my belt (G17 with 4 mags, X200 and belt light.) My rifle, mags, SL20, my GSW kit, my MFF bag with my GM and goggles and helmet etc, all left in my effing car.

    I felt extremely vulnerable knowing I was going up against rifle fire with 147 grain SXTs only and an opponent with plates and effing ballistic leggings!

    Remember your equipment, every day. Check your cars, every day. Be ready for the suck, EVERY DAY.

    He is a cop's cop. He has done some weirdy policy stuff, but when the chips fall... stand up guy.

    Speaking from my POV, it would not have ended well for him. I cannot and will not go into details, but our response was overwhelming and offered no chance of survival other than to give up.

    Without question, any day or time. :patriot:

    And it won't take nearly as long for me to get there at 120 mph.

    Aired on APD primary for that district that he was detained. Description aired and confirmed tobe armed and involved, all early on.

    MetroNet all call at 0054. I was en route at 0054. Arrival 18 minutes and 1/4 tank of fuel later.

    I followed a Troop from 270/36 all the way there.

    CSP represented and were pros. Me and a trooper with a M&P AR made me feel better with my G17!

    Damn. 24 miles, door to door. Supposed to be a 34 minute drive with no traffic. I shaved off 16 minutes. Almost half. :wow:

    Thank gawd I was drafting behind State Patrol. :patriot:
