Police critics try 'Shoot, Don't Shoot' police simulator

You've seen the numerous protests across the country whenever a police officer is accused of shooting someone who may or may not be armed.

But what if those people who are critical of police, got a chance to see what's it's really like to be an officer?

Three Southern California residents got a chance to do just that.

They were armed with a gun and a taser and they used the training simulator at the LA County Sheriff's Regional Training Facility.

Every scenario was different but realistic to what officers face in real life.

Definitely an eye opening experience...for all of the participants.
