They showed this video in the academy in order to demonstrate to us how a traffic stop can go bad and having the will to fight. The deputy was so stressed at that moment that when was screaming at his gun to fire, not realizing that he had emptied his magazine and had to reload. He was able to shoot Brannan in the stomach, but Brannan kept on advancing. They were able to track Brannan down and found him hiding under a tool shed or something.
Little did we know that they would spring this same scenario on us during training using sim munitions, with one round designated to fail during the firefight. Fortunately, I fell back to my training, and when my gun jammed, I was able to run around the cruiser while tapping and racking to clear the jam and put 3 or more rounds in his chest. We had to go in one at a time, not knowing if they were going to throw a shoot or no shoot scenario at us.
Being in a small department like that, the deputy probably didn't have the benefit of live fire training like that and didn't have anything to fall back on. I would hope that they have updated the training there to include a scenario like this.
