His stock isn't extended either - he hadn't figured out it's an adjustable stock?

Well, I got to give credit to the guy for having BUIS...if your optic breaks down, batteries go dead...or it's on backwards, those BUIS are critical. I love our LE community, but every group has it's morons. The biggest travesty is that politicians and bureaucrats keeping using that "qualified and professional" excuse for years, but even the most "trained" government, tier-one operators can still be morons. Heck we even had an armed FBI agent doing a dance off at a club, dropping his handgun and his blundering ended up with a moronic-negligent discharge.

Basic weapons handling, not making bone-headed decisions when armed, and for God's sake man, do your damn PCCs and PCIs with the "tools" of your trade!

Something's not making a whole lot of sense

1. It's Business Insider, it could be totally fake news

2. He wouldn't be able to see the reticle with it on backwards.

3. How come they don't have helmets on like the guy squatting

4. The guy squatting is in military camo, not SWAT

4. How come the butt isn't extended?

It's probably a picture from a movie somewhere

Insider identified the dept. it’s a small town swat team. They are surrounding a suspect but I’m guessing that this was pretty far back since the press was allowed there. He may be posing for the press also.

No hate for the guy. But I bet he gets a nick name over this. Maybe “ look back” or “backwards bob “ or maybe “rear view rick “

IF SOMEONE is THAT incompetent he shouldn't have a Nerf gun let alone that thing in his hands.

I LEFT our team after the following events happened.

The SAME officer had his SECOND A.D. in a training accident and was NOT kicked off the team..because he was an aide to the chief though still patrolman rank. But, since he wasn't on the "varsity" line he wasn't that bad a threat, but still I had never seen that happen with any other team.
and then
they recruited 2 cops of color who had not only never tried for the team but they didn't want any part of it, only shot when they had to, barely made qualification, and had to be basically drafted against their will to join up because they wanted "color" mixed in and were promised all sorts of perks and benefits if they joined.

At that stage I told them I wanted nothing to do with having anyone not that interested standing behind me with a cap gun, let alone a subgun or shotgun.

Politics has no place when the team that is supposed to be the saving grace of a bad situation is made up of not the best you have.

No hate for the guy either.

(He'll no doubt hear about this for a long time to come.)

I used to train LLEA SWAT teams with an outfit in Georgia, and the simple fact is that most local teams don't have much money. Their departments don't have much in the way of training budgets either. Not talking about the big city departments, but the small local or even county teams.

There is no excuse for showing up to a real world **** show with your sight on backwards, but I'm betting this guy hasn't received a lot of training either.

To paraphrase Donald Rumsfeld, who famously said "you go to war with the army you have, not the army you might want or wish to have at a later time"; "you show up with whatever you have for a team - not the team you wish you had.


But I bet this guy learns how to install his sight on his rifle.....

I mean to be fair to the guy he showed up to a gun fight with his sight on backwards BUT he did show up to a gun fight. So he gets points for putting himself in a dangerous situation to help his community. But loses several points for making the situation more dangerous by showing up without a properly zeroed weapon.

Wait...now people have every camo memorized? There a SWAT camo? And itís different from military camo? Looks to me like heís wearing jeans and a black over shirt....not camo at all. The ďmilitary camoĒ guy...has POLICE written all over it.

And heís supposed to extend the stock...why? Heís got the single point sling on the butt, heís got the vertical grip...maybe he isnít shooting bladed? Maybe heís used to CQB and kicking doors, and likes it short?

Or maybe thatís the only way he can see through that red dot?
