Tom Demerly is a blog writer and he got a chance to not only see the Dearborn, MI Police SWAT Team train, he got to train with them.
Embedded with the SWAT Team, they respond to a call of a mass shooter. At least that is the training scenario. They use the Ford Research and Innovation Building for this training scenario. Inside is a re-enactment of a mass shooting. Victims and hostages all throughout the building. Tom watches and learns how stressful it is to have to hunt down the suspect. Every person is a suspect. Ever corner or innocuous piece of furniture could be a potential hiding spot for the shooter.
