…. We’ve seen protests all across the country after police officers have been accused of shooting people who aren’t armed.
But what would happen if one of those protesters looked at what it’s like to wear a badge, and be put in a life or death situation.
Jarrett Maupin has been very vocal during the recent protests, leading marches on the Phoenix Police headquarters after officers shot an unarmed man who reportedly fought with them.
He agreed to go through a force on force training with the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office and went through three scenarios where you have to decide to shoot, or not to shoot.
Scenario one is a call of a man casing cars in a parking lot. Maupin approached the man and started asking questions. The suspect in the drill shot Maupin, who was asking him what kind of car he drove. It happens that fast.
FOX 10 asked him when he thought it was time for him to address the scenario with the use of force. “When he came to the back of the vehicle and started hiding, I could sense something was wrong,” said Jarrett Maupin.
Scenario two is a call of two men fighting. “What’s going on today gentlemen, what are you doing?” he said. He fired at the suspect in the scenario.
FOX 10 asked him why he shot the suspect. “Hey, he rushed me… I shot because he was in that zone, I didn’t see him armed, he came clearly to do some harm to my person,” said Maupin. “It’s hard to make that call; it shakes you up.”
