Video how German police execute riot control – ancient times battle
During the 1992 Los Angeles riots, we learned from our mistakes, primarily from a break down in leadership. Henceforth LAPD developed what was called a Mobile Field Force configuration (MFF), in which I later became a squad leader in one of their many MFF squads. “Hats and bats line up on me.” As long as all officers continued to train, were in unity, were disciplined, maintained area integrity, and were well synchronized; they maximized their effectiveness.
Having said that, it looks like the police in Germany have raised the bar. But not with postmodern tools and methodologies. But with good old fashioned ancient times battle.
Watch how they frequently rotate their squads, so that the officers on the front line do not become exhausted. Watch how they are able to discern the primary aggressors, as they surgically extract them for their arrest teams. As well as utilizing the bow and arrow movement.
In the context of spiritual warfare. Isn’t this a beautiful picture how the local church should engage the world, but with the glorious Gospel? – Bill 🙂
As Paul said to the Christians “Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier. And if a man also strive for masteries, yet is he not crowned, except he strive lawfully” (2 Timothy 2:3-5).
