I think the "gun! gun! gun!" is used to warn other officers that the suspect has a weapon in their hands.
This is what's hard to imagine. You know that feeling you get when you wake up and think that you heard someone in your house? Now, imagine that you are that person, and the human being wearing the police uniform that's actually outside your window has the same exact adrenaline/fear going.... And both of you have weapons drawn. Something bad is going to happen, and more often than not the trained person will survive the events.
I don't think it's as easy as just saying "the police have to announce themselves whenever conducting an investigation or serving a warrant," because that will without a doubt expose LEOs to even greater danger when they are forced to confront bad guys. I really wish that I knew the answer. Like I said, though..... I can relate. I could very easily be one those people who could be shot if they come into my place unannounced.
The officer, even if he sees a gun, has to wait until he/she is shot 3 times before determining whether or not the subject should be considered a death threat.... at which point they can LEGALLY return fire.
I’d like to hear what he has to say about that and also an officers’s response when he see’s a gun. In my opinion it doesn’t make sense to say “Let me see your hands” when you see someone’s hand and it has a gun in it. A more appropriate response would probably be “drop your weapon” or to simply yell “gun! gun! gun!” like I’ve seen in other videos where police have shot suspects who actually had guns.
