  1. I appreciate this guy. Thank you for your service. He’s making the world a safer place at the cost of his own mental health. I hope he is well. Panic attacks suck. They’re so so bad and I hope he’s able to recover and be healthy.

  2. Oh yeah, panic attacks are no joke, but I can’t imagine how scary a situation like that would have been. The mental health of our officers is incredibly important and rarely talked about.

  3. I don't care what anyone says….our Officers are just Human in those uniforms…they feel fear…for their own safety and fear for the safety of others…they feel regret and guilt….and I for one Support them …cause they are just People…like me.

  4. Is it just me, or whenever I watch videos of lapd shootings or nypd shootings, the officers never have a meltdown or sound scared but when i watch videos of police shootings from smaller and less popular cities, the cops have way more of a terrified reaction.

  5. Active and Veteran soldiers,

    Pre amble: Since I’ve never been in the military nor a police officer, I will just make the assumption I’d fall apart much worse than this. I’ll say that just because the following is not a criticism of this brave officer who used training and only after the event did he have issues….

    Is it common to see some soldiers just brake down once combat begins? Or is the vetting process past that point, making it rare? For the lack of a better term, and without belittling anyone with an uncontrollable and obviously unwanted “over” reaction…. is it common for some first-time soldiers to freeze and panic, especially during combat?

    Thanks for getting this far. If you did, you remember the name of the town, don’t you? But really, I appreciate anyone’s time who answers.

  6. I don’t know if it really counts as a “panic attack” if it’s triggered by a very real danger like being shot at… a panic attack is basically when you have an adrenaline rush for no obvious reason. It doesn’t take a mental illness to freak out when someone is shooting at you!
