The location and timing was perfect though, I'll give her that much. Ugh.

Ok, I haven't watched this because time, but I have done quite a few role-playing training exercises for various things and there is tremendous potential for abuse in setting up situations to have predetermined outcomes that just reinforce the biases of the trainers rather than actually training people for reasonably realistic situations. It is hard to balance low-probability/high risk events with high-probability/low risk events, but the result is often to elevate the significance of the low probability events, particularly in the case of police where there is very low probability of consequences for blowing citizens away because you thought there was a slight possibility of them trying to harm you.

 
you should watch it

and is there a legit argument for  guided policing/law enforcement?  something that may have better outcomes? 

absolutely, especially when there is a chance for the initiation of a strategy (serving a warrant for example)

could it be safer and easier to arrest someone once outside their nest/burrow/home turf?

is there a  way to minimize risk for all involved? 

might produce a better outcome or the odds of a better outcome
 
Sure, but it's not as much FUN. Where else are they gonna use all those fancy military-grade toys?

Local (former) Sheriff escalated situations for ratings. Which led to at least one death. See: 'Live PD Williamson County'. 

FYI, Wil-co recently elected the first Dem Sheriff in something like 20 years. Whats-his-name is still costing them a fortune, in $$$ and reputation.

Very sad. I don't know the story behind this and I don't need to know, although officials trying to understand the whole set of events might.

Don't know if I said it here or somewhere else but I suspect that there are a whole range of things that affected how the Capitol Police acted - from failure of their leadership and the administration supporting them and hanging them out to dry, taking a stand to do their job when faced with a clusterfuck, trying to tone things down when the mob entered the building, allowing their preconceived biases in favour of trump to affect how they did their job, and probably more complications of human nature. They aren't all the same person.

In the context of the worst recession since the 1930s, this is totally cool.   Terrific political marketing for the police force.

In the past, I have run across anecdotes of other police officers doing similar in terms of providing a service that is above and beyond what the job description calls for.
