Police get stabbed for stupidity

The police in this video paid a very high price for their lack of training and good tactics. Perhaps we can learn something at their expense. Take a look at the video and then tell me if I have missed anything in my list of goofs below.

Here's what I saw:

  • The cops had no understanding of range or the danger of knives.
  • The cops placed themselves in each other's line of fire. Oops! Handy way to shoot your partner by mistake.
  • The cops were not prepared [Side arms still holstered, rifles loosely held]
  • The attacker was patient and waited until the police got too close. He was smart. He was a predator. The cops were prey and they almost all died.

  • Did I missing anything?
