LOS ANGELES POLICE DEPARTMENT SWAT OFFICERS WALK TOWARD THEIR VEHICLES AFTER ONE OFFICER WAS WOUNDED AND A SUSPECT KILLED IN 2014.

“Every second counts, and hesitation will kill you,” Jamie McBride told the Los Angeles Police Commission last month.

McBride, a director of the LAPD’s rank-and-file union, was testifying at a hearing about a proposal to establish new use-of-force guidelines for local cops. And he didn’t mince words.

The proposed rules, McBride promised, “will get officers killed, plain and simple.”

He went on to deliver a chilling warning to the five civilians who sit on the commission: “Make no mistake, if an officer is killed as a result …. [his] blood will be on your hands.”
