12:34 pm
second decisions i had to make. there are two aspects to this training. one is the classroom instruction, and then the simulator. let's talk about the stimulator. in the scenario, i am a san jose police officer walking to superior court to testify in a case when i see a robbery in progress. the victim yells the suspect has a gun and the suspect has something under his shirt which looks like a gun. seconds later after refuse to go obey my commands and aggressively coming forwards me i fired one shot. the suspect was apparently unarmed. course instructor jason dwyer says these are the types of scenarios the department says its officers can face every day. >> it may not be feasible to do that. things happen quickly in the field. to the extent possible, the officers are training in this environment to make very good
12:35 pm
decisions very quickly. >> reporter: even before the simulator, several hours are spent on classroom instruction. recruits and officers learn technical conduct and keys to de-escalating a situation through communication. one of the things they preach str. severity of the crime, the threat a suspect poses, and the suspect's resistance level. all of that has to be factored in before use of force. it's very fascinating. the simulator brings to life how difficult the job can be when you have a few seconds to work out all of those variables. so the question. why did i pull the trigger and shoot an unarmed man? because, the short answer, i didn't want to be shot again. i'll explain that means at 5:00 and if you check social media. facebook especially. live in south san jose, jesse gary. >> thank you. now to chicago where protests over the police shooting of an unarmed 18-year- old in chicago continue over the weekend. just yesterday more than 100 people protested at the park against the shooting of paul
