Teaching Local Cops to Kill

"Conditioned Response", a short film by Craig Atkinson and Field of Vision. For the past 20 years, ex-Army Ranger and “killology” expert Dave Grossman has been traveling across the US to train police officers on his philosophy of killing.

Directed by Craig Atkinson and Laura Hartrick

I couldn't finish watching that. The PIGS made the decision to teach me a lesson, repeatedly. Well, I learned a lesson but it wasn't what they wanted me to learn.
