Jarnhamar said:I had my chain of command unofficially tell us (our Pl) that they didn't want us taking warning shots anymore because they didn't want to risk ROE escalations and deal with collateral damage. We're in armored vehicles and "they can withstand VBIEDs".
Towards the end of our tour we were also given pen flares to use for warning shots (instead) and had investigations initiated every time we used a pen flare. We lost faith and confidence in our chain of command to "have our back" when we were following our issued ROEs.
These people are known as 'cowards', of course. Sadly, they escape back to their desks without being taken to task in many cases.
