Breakdown Of Two Cops Vs. One Large Guy At Airport Incident

Recently a man grew aggressive with two officers at an airport after being told not to smoke in the corridor. The man took a swing at one of the cops and began a tussle, being tripped up and apprehended by both individuals. As he was reaching for an officers gun, civilians intervened and prevented the worst from happening.

Although this situation did not take a turn for the worse, it provides a critical learning moment for civilians and law enforcement alike. In this video, the Gracie Brothers break down the incident at their recent Survival Tactics seminar for law enforcement. Key points to mention are that officers that get into a physical altercation are immensely thankful when civilians enter the fray to provide them a helping hand. Another point made is that an underhook is a tremendous weapon retention tool because it takes a perpetrators arm further away from the hip line, thus distancing it from having an opportunity to snatch a weapon from the officers utility belt.

They speak about the current gap between what police departments deem as acceptable force and the public’s perception on what is acceptable. There is undoubtedly a divide in society today as far as how officers’ actions are perceived in the line of duty, a point to be made is that the more progressive police departments are and the more educated police officers become in hand-to-hand combat, the less force is necessary to subdue a suspect. Anybody with information about the cops in this incident are encouraged to get in contact with them to reach out to Rener for free Survival Tactics Training.
