The video of this great police officer (Kidder) should be used as a training tool for Law enforcement/Police, and security. Thanks to Officer-Kidder for holding fire. Your are a great officer. I hope this video will be seen by many other officers.

the suspect showed no weapons and did geet down finally. It could have gone either way but with no physical threat the officer utilized the force continuum the proper way.

Our media is working, isn't it? That mutt owes his life to our wonderfully overzealous media second guessing everything that's done. The young officer is very lucky to be alive!
