Active Shooter

It seems that police and security forces around the world have been learning from the American experience with active shooters.

Based on the Paris experience, I'd look for those bullet-shields to be more widely distributed among police. Without them, the first French cops to enter the Bataclan theater would have been cut to pieces.

The active shooter scenario, sadly, is justifying the equipping of patrol officers with military-grade equipment. The cops are being trained not to wait, but to go in and fight, even if they're on their own. Stopping the shooters and stopping the carnage is the overriding priority, over officer safety.

Take a little bit of time and peruse some of the links in the Guardian article. You might find them interesting.
