Marines conduct urban combat training with Law Enforcement:
Training at Camp Lejeune Thursday looked and felt real -- and that was the point. Law officers and marines from across the country ended their training with a bang.
Thursday was the final day of exercises for law enforcement and marines who have gone through special reaction team training at Camp Lejeune for the past three weeks. In the final exercise, teams were presented with a series of real life scenarios as well as hands on instruction to handle them correctly.
Brian Dye, Operations Chief of I&I in Lexington, Kentucky says training civilians as a blended force with Marine Corps personnel eases the transition into a real world scenario.
"I think it's always good when you get an opportunity to work on some similar tactics and procedures so that everybody's kind of operating on the same page. That way when you bring teams together from active duty and the civilian side, it makes the integration a whole lot smoother."
The tactics trainees take away from this course just may help save lives. This three week SRT training course is phase one for law enforcement and Marine Corps personnel. Phase two will focus on sniper and designated marksmanship training.
Military training for law enforcement is going to save lives... Ahhh, that's the stupidest thing I've ever heard! You know what they say: "When you have a hammer, every problem looks like a nail."
Military tactics have absolutely no place in law enforcement. Law enforcement are supposed to be peace officers, diffusing situations encouraging peace and cooperation.
Tactics of war are based on principles of overwhelming firepower and violence of action. Eventually when you implement tactics of war on civilians under the auspices of "law enforcement", you start one. No good can come of any of this.
Every day most law enforcement go to work, they are in violation of their oath. Anyone in leadership that supports this kind of activity is bordering on treason.
