Military Snipers get all the credit in this day and age. Hollywood even makes big budget movies about them but Police Snipers are so underhyped. The work that a police sniper does in the shadows saves the lives of countless people.
Let’s take the lady in the video below for example:
She was being held hostage by a crazy thug who was threatening to kill her if the police didn’t back down.
There wasn’t much the police on the ground could have down without causing harm to the old lady so they had to enlist help from beyond — a trained Denver PD sniper whose only job at that moment was to kill the crazy thug. The old lady’s life depended on that sniper being perfect. One lapse in judgment and the old lady was dead but with one perfect aim, the sniper took down the thug, saving the old lady’s life.
I salute that brave sniper for what he or she did. Perfection was mandatory in that situation and he or she NAILED IT!!
