Tactical PE on US Sports Net Featuring: Bodycam Video Of Ventnor Police Shooting Of Amir Johnson From Police Activity

 ** (Disclaimer: This video content is intended for educational and informational purposes only) ** Ventnor, New Jersey — The Attorney General’s Office released video recordings from officer body-worn cameras related to the shooting on Aug. 6, 2020 in Ventnor, N.J., in which police officers fatally shot Amir Johnson, 30, of Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania.

The shooting remains under investigation by the Attorney General’s Office of Public Integrity and Accountability. However, the video recordings are being released pursuant to Attorney General Directive 2019-4, the “Independent Prosecutor Directive,” which governs use-of-force investigations in New Jersey and requires that such records, if requested, be released to the public once the initial phase of the investigation is substantially complete. Investigators met with relatives of Mr. Johnson to review the 911 audio recording and the video recordings from the body-worn cameras worn by three police officers. According to the preliminary investigation, at approximately 4:16 p.m., Ventnor and Atlantic City Police Department officers responded to a 911 call concerning a man behaving erratically in the vicinity of Wellington Avenue and West End Avenue. 

When the responding officers encountered the man, later identified as Amir Johnson, he was walking in and out of a marshy area along the roadway, while holding a broken glass bottle in his hand. The officers attempted to engage Mr. Johnson and offer him assistance, but he refused to comply with their commands, including repeated requests for him to drop the bottle. Instead, he continued to walk back and forth on the roadway, where officers had stopped traffic for safety reasons. 

 At approximately 4:30 p.m., Mr. Johnson advanced on officers with the broken bottle in his hand and multiple officers fired their weapons, fatally wounding him. He was rushed by ambulance to AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center, Atlantic City Campus, where he was pronounced deceased at approximately 6:00 p.m. The Attorney General’s Office previously released the identity of the police officers who fired at Mr. Johnson. They are Officers Michael Arena, Pierluigi Mancuso, and Robert Scarborough of the Ventnor Police Department. 

The investigation is being conducted pursuant to a state law enacted in January 2019 (P.L.2019, c.1), which requires that the Attorney General’s Office conduct investigations of a person’s death that occurs during an encounter with a law enforcement officer acting in the officer’s official capacity or while the decedent is in custody.

Tactical Workouts Lesson One: Train Like You Fight


Your life, and the lives of others, depends on how well you've prepared for the unexpected.

You can't train one way and compete another.

Doing your squats and deadlifts in the gym is great for general fitness. But if you're a tactical operator, be sure to put your gear on. When you are kitted up for an operation, your gear could weigh 40 to 70 pounds. And sometimes much more.

Gain Instant Access To Tactical Workouts!

That's why it makes sense to train like you fight and wear your kit during some workouts.

What's the likelihood of you having to grab a downed victim, or a fellow tactical operator? In a real-world situation, you'll need the power, strength, and endurance to move yourself plus the injured.

A smart tactical operator also sets his kit up in a way to minimize operational friction. In other words, anything that slows you down in the battlespace. If you position your rifle magazines in a spot that forces you to take your eyes off of the target, the results could be fatal.

So build your kit to your mission. Your gear should fit your body, reduce friction under stress, and allow you to access the tools you need. Equipment setup and load stabilization is critical for tactical athletic success.

QUESTION : How should I adjust my backpack for a perfect fit?

ANSWER : Follow the steps below to ensure comfortable carrying no matter what you're doing.

1. Load some weight into the backpack so you can get a good feel of how it will fit while it's packed. Then loosen all of the straps and put it on with all of the straps loose.

2. Tighten the hip belt. To do this, you'll want the padded hipbelts covering the iliac crest, or the very top of your hip bones. Tighten the straps until they are snug but not too tight.

3. Tighten the shoulder straps by pulling the straps straight down. Again, don't pull it too tight, you want to make sure your shoulders aren't carrying most of the weight.

4. Tighten the "load lifter" straps. The load lifters help pull the weight of your gear closer to your body. Pull the load lifters until the straps are at about a 45° angle to the backpack's body.

5. Next, fasten and tighten the sternum strap. The sternum strap pulls the shoulder straps together to relieve some of the stress on your shoulders. Keep your sternum strap about an inch below your collarbones.

6. Now that everything is tight, you can loosen the shoulder straps a bit. you should be able to feel the weight of the backpack ease onto your hips. Ideally, about 65% of the weight will ride on your hips.
