    shot of the brain dump. Now what you have is an active bomb There. You need to treat this just like you would any other bomb you to evacuate the scene establish a perimeter call the bond's cool. Not you don't have a suicide -- -- you just have an active bomb . If the bomber is compliant and you choose not to close the distance -- them. You want to want to do in that case control them at a distance with a long gone from behind -- This has happened overseas in some cases -- suicide bombers lost their nerve and wanted to surrender. And you want to good use of these these events and sporting into the suicide -- way out some open -- being forced to you know open up the garment sector. And to be controlled from behind cover. By by trained -- Some suicide bombers aren't even necessarily control of the bomb that they wear on him. Some of them have timing device that have the bombs had to go off at certain times so the bomber the suicide bomber usually isn't the bomb maker. And won't know about these kind of arrangement they're just total to walk over there. And and either wait what's that the bomb off or do something but they don't necessarily know if there's a -- there the looks at the bomb off if they don't. So just because a bomber is down and appears to be dead or otherwise neutralize doesn't mean the bonds inactive. Often times the suicide bomber -- how handler. Handlers someone who watches the event -- suicide bomber approached the target and detonated from a distance from the safe location. Oftentimes this handler can detonate the bomb remotely that ultimately suicide -- lose their nerve. Or gets intercepted or stock or something like that. Therefore neutralizing the suicide bomber doesn't necessarily. Neutralize the -- It's still be set off remotely. This is why using security measures -- -- we just described to re route suspected suicide bombers to. Less populated areas is so important as just critical that bomber don't -- -- -- it won't go off. Part of any. Facility's security measures. For dealings suicide bombers -- the bombers is to have over the -- Being able to watch the area hopefully these snipers in addition to potentially taking out suicide bomber -- off might also be able to get ice on handler. And -- with them to. Once the bomb on suicide bomber has detonated for whatever reason. There are other people -- -- you wanna be -- most likely co conspirator. You wanna go high that is part of your response. When a bomb went -- like that happens while I was off you want people to go high and start looking for co conspirators people involved in this instance. That would be people calmly walking away from the incident -- but I've been -- towards or away from -- -- but not walking calmly away. Anybody videotaping it and and when you -- intercept -- a -- conversation with and in general people whose behavior is uncharacteristic for the context in the place in the event that just happened. Someone should have this responsibility as part of your plan. Bomb goes off someone goes -- some number of people -- -- and start looking at the -- and see what's happening. Pick out the people are acting on usually. -- have been suicide bomb failures that is the bomb itself can go off but the detonator went off the plastic one off. It is there's like this you aren't gonna get the explosion it was intended but you're -- you're -- real loud bang. And you gonna see someone riding around on the ground in a lot of pain. Now the potential bomber is going to be severely injured but it doesn't mean he's not still a threat. They may have a secondary means of a detonating a bomb or their handler. May be able to detonate a bomb so when he if that happens if you see that happen you need to get people on -- fast possibly -- and you probably not going to. -- you -- -- eliminate all loss of life but you may minimize. In terms of personal protection in a post detonation environment suicide bomber it's the same as any other kind of bomb Just need to be -- the kind of contaminant that maybe in the environment because a bomb went off. Structural danger if you apply to they always did -- just like any other bond posted nation after the idea that -- -- secured. Note however that some suicide bombers had been recruited or -- we recruited because they had to -- infectious disease or effective and -- With some kind of -- one engine before they blew themselves up. So blood borne pathogens become the real issue with a suicide bomber and -- normal PPE. Should address this but. Just be really -- number and be extra careful. Moving on to use of force against suspected suicide bomber I just as a suicide bomber the rules don't change it's just someone that has -- capability to hurt you. Just like they had a gun we now have a bomb your standard is still probable cause you -- probable cause to believe that someone is. Is imminently going to shoot you you have every right to shoot them first. If you have probable cause to believe the suicide bombers about to blow themselves up -- -- -- The responsibility. As well as the right to shoot them for. Number the universal rule is you're allowed to use deadly force to stop -- -- -- -- -- innocent party in imminent danger of death crippling injury. The other universal of course policy always -- The thing to keep in mind when Hillary's talking about responding to suicide bombers And -- we want to keep in mind we're talking about using any kind of force that is imminent doesn't mean its happening right now. That's immediate immediate -- is happening right now. Unit means it's about. Imminent means if you wait any longer it'll be too late. The particular danger that place is you particular action that things as you endangerment bomber gun -- -- is irrelevant. -- imminent danger of death a crippling injury you have the read write in this case responsibility. To use force. Because we're talking about potentially. Sneaking up on suspect suicide bomber and shooting them in the -- them. And that the reason for doing that but just finished doing and it's probable cause
