WATCH NOW: Shoot, Don't Shoot?

WATCH NOW: Shoot, Don't Shoot?

19 Action News, in conjunction with local law enforcement agencies, initiated a social experiment: how would average Northeast Ohio residents react in pressure situations similar to what police officers face?

We invited four people to a unique police training exercise. All four were placed in real world stressful situations where a split second decision had to be made regarding use of deadly force.

To expand the story into a broader social experiment, online voting at 19ActionNews.com for viewers will be enabled, so Northeast Ohio residents can watch each scenario and decide for themselves.

TUNE IN NOW: Our week of special reports begins on 19 Action News at 11pm!
