The cops in Hollywood versus real life cops

Yes yes yes… I know movies are not real. Thus we should not expect them to get all the reality of police work and guns right…

Below are three videos made by Tim Dees, a former police officer and now writer for many popular police publications. He made these videos for the Public Safety Writers Convention that was held last week. Sadly I could not make it to the PSWA convention but luckily Tim emailed out links to the YouTube copies of the video.

First up is a great break down of the opening scene to the classic movie Tango and Cash

Next up is some funny gun clichés along with a few knifes also…

Last we have Hollywood bending the laws of physics for gunfighting with a bonus of the art of “Tactical Dancing” for cover and concealment in a gun fight.
