Why did the Nara police let Abe die?

  Recently, former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe was attacked by an assassin while giving a speech on the street near Yamato Saidaiji Station in Nara City. He was shot twice at close range and fell to the ground. Images from the scene showed Abe was shot in the chest and neck at the time. At 4:48 pm on the same day, Japanese media announced that Shinzo Abe died of serious injuries at the age of 67.
  Judging from the public videos from multiple angles, there were many security loopholes at the scene of Abe’s assassination. He gave a speech in an open space on the street. The personnel on the scene were complicated and most of them had not undergone background checks and security tests. What’s worse is that Abe is in an open field that can be approached 360 degrees from front to back, left and right, and it is difficult to be alert in all directions. Judging from the reaction of the bodyguards at the scene, their professionalism was also quite suspicious. When the assassin fired the first shot, Abe turned to look in the direction of the shooting. The professional bodyguards of politicians should quickly pounce on Abe and protect him with his body to block the follow-up attack, but the on-site personnel did not make effective covering actions after the gunshots.
  According to subsequent information released by Japanese media, the scene of Abe’s assassination was indeed protected by plainclothes and armed police officers, but only one of the close-knit officers was an SP special police officer of the Japan Metropolitan Police Department’s Security Police Department, and the rest of the officers were from Nara. local police station. The protection of dignitaries requires sufficient special staffing. Generally speaking, a minimum dignitary protection team also needs at least three people, because the viewing angle of the human eye is 120 degrees, and three people can just cover the 360-degree warning. Under normal circumstances, the bodyguard team of retired officials at the level of Abe needs at least five people, that is, one person on the front, one on the left, one on the left, and one close guard around him as a mobile force and a personal shield. In addition to these personal bodyguards, the general military and police exist as a peripheral security force.
  Equipping so many full-time bodyguards around the protected object is actually to deal with possible emergencies, that is, to ensure that at least one professionally trained bodyguard can see the danger of incoming attacks. Many people think that bodyguards must be able to play several at a time. In fact, this is the most secondary capacity building. The core competitiveness of bodyguards is to be able to detect, identify threats in time, and make correct responses to save the employer’s life. . In this assassination, if Abe is equipped with a sufficient number of SP SWAT officers, and the SWAT officers can function normally, then he is likely to escape.
  Ordinary police officers in the Nara area obviously did not have the ability to correctly identify danger, let alone respond within a critical second. Even after Abe fell, these police officers did not even draw their guns. Although from the perspective of Zhuge Liang in hindsight, when there is only one assassin and the two bullets in the gun have been fired, it seems unnecessary for the police officers to draw their guns, but this is to consider the problem from the perspective of God, and it is impossible to do so at the scene. It is also impossible to determine the number of assassins immediately, and it is impossible to know for sure that the opponent’s gun has only two bullets and no reloading ability. The reason why VIP Guard asked the peripheral personnel who were on guard at the scene to draw their guns after the gunshots sounded, on the one hand, was to deal with the shootout or to deter opponents, on the other hand, it was to remind the surrounding people to pay attention to avoidance, so that the bodyguard team could identify other assassins and dangers .
  When U.S. President Ronald Reagan was assassinated in 1981, the bodyguards around him protected Reagan with his body in time and pushed him into a bulletproof vehicle. During this process, a Washington police officer and Secret Service agent were shot, and other Secret Service agents at the scene quickly The bodyguards and police officers who were closest to the assassin immediately pushed him to the ground. Although President Reagan was still shot, he was lucky enough to save his life. The bodyguard team’s response to the assassination process is interlinked, like a textbook.
  From a professional point of view, the first job of the bodyguard in the event of an assassination is to protect the employer and get him to safety as soon as possible, then to deal with subsequent attacks and identify other possible dangers, and finally to catch the assassin. The task of ordinary police officers is to arrest criminal suspects. Identifying dangers requires long-term training. Helping people to block guns is against instinct, and more training and targeted psychological construction are required. As for covering employers, very detailed plans and tacit cooperation are required. Ordinary police officers obviously do not have these aspects. Prepare. This is also the fundamental reason why we see that only the capture of the assassin was successful and Abe died.
