Black anti-cop activist undergoes police use of force training and gets an attitude readjustment [VIDEO]

Sometimes the best way to prove a point is to make folks who talk the talk, walk the walk.

Such is the case in Maricopa County, which includes Phoenix, Arizona, where a local anti-police activist — black Reverend Jarrett Maupin, who was a former US Congressional candidate — undergoes law enforcement use of force training.

As reported by Western Journalism, “A progressive pastor who has lead protests against law enforcement said “his attitude has changed” Wednesday after a local law enforcement agency invited him to a training scenario simulating life threatening situations.”

Rev. Jarrett Maupin is a former Democratic congressional candidate who describes himself as a “Progressive Baptist Preacher,” a “Civil Rights Campaigner,” and a “Radical Political Activist” on his Twitter profile.”

“He led a demonstration last month against the Phoenix Police Department after one of their officers shot an unarmed man. But earlier this week, the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office extended an invitation to Maupin to participate in an exercise where he would find himself in three simulated life threatening scenarios police officers could experience while on the job, KSAZ reported.”

I have some other recommendations as to who needs to undergo this training: Barack Obama, Eric Holder, Bill de Blasio, Al Sharpton and George Soros.

Take the five minutes to watch this video. Some may say a taser could have been used, but then again, being put in the scenario is far more different than being an armchair quarterback. And for those who think you should just pull out a baton — well, why would you want to get engaged in a close order action – particularly if your assailant is armed?

It was interesting to hear the final comments from the Reverend. Perhaps more of these anti-police mouthpieces should walk a late night beat with our law enforcement officers. And I’d love to see members of the Obama national security team go on a patrol in Afghanistan.

Well all I know is that if my husband,son,father or any other relative is a police officer,my main concern will be to have them coming home safe……….so complying with an officer orders is the right thing to do for everyone involved

So I guess your main concern is to have them come home safe, no matter what the cost.

Hello T-baggers, here’s to hoping you all had a glorious and reflective MLK day! We sure did. Our thanks to Reagan* for making this all possible. Maybe he will get promoted into purgatory and out of the fiery furnace. (not)

*sorry ‘baggers, there will NEVER be a holiday for this treasonous SOB!

I would love to do the same scenario that Jarrett Maupin did only with a real taser and see just how “ineffective” it is.

I thought these guys were pretty quick to use their guns. On the other hand, I think any time someone (police or not) points a gun at me, I would respond as calmly and as unthreateningly as possible.

Naturally, not everyone in such a situation is calm or rational. So the logical solution might be to give only non-lethal weapons to the police — this would make them less confrontational (not wanting to get killed) and thus reduce violent confrontations. When encountering an armed felon, the police might decide to back off to avoid escalation.

You are being sarcastic, right? You cannot be serious!

Non-lethal weapons? Really? Have you ever heard the saying “when guns are outlawed only outlaws will have guns”? Some places with the strictest gun control laws have the most gun violence, NY & IL are the first that come to mind. Australia, and UK are 2 countries that have strict gun control doesn’t stop the murder, it just changes the weapon used.
