This Made Me Think of Iraq (Apologies in Advance)
From the e-mailed NLECTC Law Enforcement & Corrections Technology News Summary, Thursday, May 13, 2004:

"30 Jail Deputies Endure Grueling Training in Kentucky"
Owensboro Messenger-Inquirer (05/07/04); Willis, Justin

About 30 western Kentucky jail deputies completed a week-long training session to prepare them for service on their facilities' emergency response team. Deputies were exposed to a variety of crowd control weapons, including pepper spray, taser guns, bean-bag guns, and tear gas, so that they remain calm and effectively handle dangerous situations when exposed to the weapons during emergencies. The educational session also involved classroom training, drills covering survival during an attack and proper use of force, and a written test. Kentucky-based Daviess County Detention Center jailer David Osborne asserts that use of the 12-member emergency response team at his facility is rare, as the team immediately brings inmates under control and soothes dangerous situations. www.messenger-inquirer.com

First, let's clarify that the Kentucky jail training did NOT include lessons in how to arrange prisoners in a human pyramid.

Of course, that's the issue - the jailers in Iraq apparently didn't get much training at all....
