A New Perspective
The Orlando nightclub shooting last year was a terrible time for tons of people. Lives were lost and families were broken. However, with all of that, heroes were made out of the police officers and the citizens present who responded to the situation. Some new footage from body cams during the incident has been released, and it’s as breathtaking as you would expect.
Technology has come a long way, and the advances it makes gives us some pretty interesting insights. New footage from a police officer’s body cam is shining light on the tragic event at Pulse nightclub that left 49 people dead and 53 more injured last year.
There are more than 30 videos that you can watch to give a good idea of how everything went down. There was a three hour long standoff after the shooting took place, and some of the words the police officers said are bone-chilling.
When you get to experience the same things the officers saw, it changes your perspective on the whole situation.
At around two in the morning, an officer could be heard screaming while bullets were flying through the air. You can later hear an officer yelling the words: “You in the bathroom, let me see your hands now! Come out with your hands up, or you will die!”
The dramatic measures needed to be taken in this situation, and it’s hard to imagine the thoughts rushing through the officers heads.
“Lord Jesus, watch over me,” one of them prayed.
